Got ihired to teacher on a Letter of Permision, 2 years later 2 degrees from Queens for 12 weeks of work. Life is good for the chef.

Is it going to be doing winter duty? Poor bike! You can get the raceblade style fenders at most bike shops these days. Any of the larger stores will have them for sure. Don't you have a more suitable bike for winter riding?

Thats good to know!

So if you don't want the raceblade style fenders and you don't have fender eylets... your only real option may be to buy full coverage fenders designed for eyelets and use zip ties or hose clamps or whatever to mount them. Either that or somehow get the mounting system for the raceblades and then fudge them to work with full coverage fenders. Generally full coverage requires eyelets.


Actually, the Planet Bike SpeedEZ fenders are what you are looking for exactly. Buy them.

Check the clearance between the brake calipers and the tires. This is often a problem with running full coverage fenders on a race/road bike. If the tire is pretty close to the brake arch then you will prolly run in to probs with the tire rubbing the fender. Don't pay more than $20 for a full set. Also look for 35mm...the 45's will be too wide to fit your bike.

Sounds like fun.... snow rides are a blast. With these new tyres I feel like I could ride up the side of a building. Keith you got more of these? How long can one store tyres before they "go"?
