    Velo Orange Zep Fenders

    Hi all,
    Wondering if any of you have tried the velo orange zeppelin fenders on your bike, if so what size? I'm looking to put some on for a California rainy season. Currently have a set of planet bike fenders which the back fender will not fit the clearance of my back caliper and wheel...

    Not Zepelin's but just the 700c 45mm hammered silver fenders. They were light, went on relatively easily and didn't rattle. I would recommend them.

    fenders: awesome until you have to hang your bike, lock your bike or put your bike in a rack. I'd rather just get a brown stripe up my ass....

    What about seatpost fenders like this?
    Zefal Swan Rear Fender 45mm

    I do casual riding but figure one of these would reduce the spray stripe by at least a little. I'm purchasing rain gear too but just curious if one of these types fall in same boat as what you described.

    Seems they can be mounted quite low.

    Those work well. I have an SKS brand and its good and relatively cheap.

    I read somewhere their periods attract bears. Bears can smell the menstruation.
