    Bacchetta Fenders

    I ordered fenders for my Agio directly from Bacchetta. I expected them to be custom made for the bike. I was disappointed that they appear to be basic fenders you can get anywhere, but possibly with custom mounting hardware.

    They have the adjustable sliding thing where you tighten the nut once you get everything in the right place. They also came with no instructions at all. I got them installed, and everything seems to fit, I was just a bit disappointed.

    At least they were only $45, and shipping was fast.

    I had the same experience

    My Giro 20 fenders looked similar to planet bike ones that I'd put on the Screamer and my DF.

    Have you put a kickstand on it? I got a nice one from Calhoun Cycle for $48.

    After riding a bit more, I'm satisfied with the fenders. I don't know about wet riding yet, but nothing is loose.

    My LBS sold me the bike with a kickstand. I have no idea what brand it is. It works unless the bike is heavily loaded. I may look at a new one next year.
