    Narrow fenders

    I'm looking for some narrow fenders, but cheaper than these Berthoud carbon ones: http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/berthoud.asp

    I want full coverage, so raceblades are out. Does anyone know of a similar narrow fender, or have any experience with chopping up fenders to make them narrower?

    I wish these D. Salmon fenders (French) were available somehow in the US. I can't even find them on their site, but my French vocabulary kinda sucks.

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    ^ Thanks
    55.00 EUR = 86.8453 USD

    Not exactly a steal but better than the Berthouds. Who's up for a group buy?

    They're ~3mm aluminium sheet - rigid as heck, with almost no annoying rattling and don't fall to pieces like crappy plastic ones.

    The only other ones worth considering are the wood laminate ones but they're even more expensive.

    edit: you're welcome

    Duder,

    Check out SKS Fenders.

    From Peter White

    Esge P35 for 700c tires up to 32mm, silver or dark grey $ 32.00



    I bought the set, but currently only use the front one which works beautifully. Rear sucks if you have track ends, but thats my fault.

    They're also that crappy cromoplastic stuff that bends, breaks and rattles like a rattling thing.

    learn how to install them, if they rattle you're failing.
