I'm finally starting to see signs of spring here in Wisconsin which means a few months of soggy roads and trails. As much as I hate the look of fenders, I hate having a roost up my back even more so I'm looking for some fenders for my Trek ION CX.
Normally I wouldn't ask for advice for such a simple product, but what has me concerned are the frames mounting holes. The holes for the rear fender don't appear like they'll line-up with most rear fenders.
The lower mounting hole is on the seat tube above the front derailleur on the seat tube. The other mounting hole is on the back of where the brake bridge, but since the bike has cantilever brakes, the hole doesn't go all the way through.
Heck, now that I looked at it, I don't know how the front fender will mount either. There's not a normal eyelet down by the front skewer. Instead, there are some small screws in the fork where I'm guessing I'd have to screw in some bolt eyelets if I had them?!?
I was thinking about getting some Planet Bike hybrid fenders, but considering the odd mounting points on my bike's frame, I'm not sure they'll work:
Perhaps I should go with these quick-mount fenders instead? I don't plan on keeping them on all season long.
Or, is there something cooler and more "CX" like?
