I was very excited to find a set of Bluemels 'Popular' fenders in white, to put on my wife's Bob Jackson mixte.
The install is not going so well though. Front, no problem. Back, I needed to trim a bit of the plastic to get the leading edge between the chainstays, which was not a big deal. But after that, the fender is right up against the centerpull brake and the bridge (if the brake wasn't there). And after that squeeze, something happens where I can't keep the trailing edge of the fender from twisting and rubbing badly. I could move the wheel forward in the dropout (it's about midpoint) but that'll make it a tighter fit at the brake bridge. I had to deflate the tire to get the wheel back on!
I actually wondered if somehow these fenders were intended for 26" wheels but judging from the front, they should work. (That one just needs a little adjustment.) Maybe they simply don't work with a bike where the brake bridge is so close?
Any suggestions welcome...or, I likely have a nice, slightly clipped pair of white Bluemels FS/FT.
sorry this one is flipped 90 by the uploader here for some reason.
