    Got a question about fenders.

    Ok I'm wondering what size fender could I get for a Marzocchi MZ Comp fork, and what companies make them.

    Dont bother....they really dont have a good purpose, and will only annoy. However, if you must get a fender.....THE makes a sweet one.

    I think fenders are usefull...especially here.

    Rocks in the face...do you ride with your face near the downtube? I have never heard of someone getting hit from their own bike. I get nailed if I follow to close to someone though

    You could also use these Topeak Defenders

    I don't run them on the trail, but they serve their purpose on my commuter when it rains. They look kinda dorky on the hardtail, but when it rains who really gives a F^(* what others think

    Thats why I prefer the one attached to the downtube. The huge one out front blocks the vision too much.

    I have a Marzocchi fender mounted to my Z150's...if your fork has two threaded holes in the bottom of the crown, you can use one of those.

    It looks integrated, and not tacked on like some of the other aftermarket offerings.

    Well I looked at my fork and it has no holes for screws to go in on it. Does anyone have a solution for this?

    Most fenders have expanding bolts that lock the fender into the steerer.

    Or for the downtube ones...ductape or zipties.

    The Topeak model I showed you has an expansion plug on the bracket that fits into the bottom of the steerer tube.

    The Topeaks also have a quick release on them so that when you don't need them you can take them off leaving only the bracket

    I second the Topeak Defenders. They are one of the best fenders you can buy. They look good (IMO), are durable and are considerably cheaper then T.H.E. or SKS. You can buy them seperate or in a set. You can also get them in a spiffy, shiny carbon-look.

    They look dorky on my hardtail when I'm running slicks as I do when I'm commuting. With a set of knobbies they'd look much better.

    I saw THE fenders for 20 bucks at the bike show. I didn't think it was parctical. I still don't. Are they that strong? They're stylin' but I still wonder if fenders are useful. 20 bucks from 50 is good but man its still expensive.

    The plastic used in the Topeak's is pretty durable - it'll bend and get scratched to hell and gone before it'll bust.
