    Anybody running fenders on an SST AL?

    Thinking about replacing my Fantom Uno with one of these. Just wondering what fender options I have with the tight clearance. What's everyone using?

I'd go so far as to say I think it's practically necessary. Seatpost, saddle, pedals (very cheap and junky), and tires (very poor cornering traction) should be budgeted as near instant replacements. The frame looks like it might fit a 30, maybe a few 32s but not most. The brake calipers will only clear a 28 though and just barely at that.


    I've modified mine a bit.


    Sette Aeon stem 130 mm
    Sette Nyx saddle - best damn inexpensive saddle I've ever seen
    Crud Road Racer fenders (just barely clear with 23s)
    Hutchinson Ultra Fusion II tires - ride is wonderful, about 1000 miles on them so far with very little noticeable wear
    Sette APX carbon seat post
    Crank Bros Quattro SL pedals
    Sette ST-316 rear blinky - best little cheap light I've ever seen
    Nashbar fake carbon bottle cage
    removed the decals and blacked out most markings
    put some strategic reflective tape on to make the police happy (as if my 1/2W rear and 700 lumen front weren't bright enough)
    Looks like it could but it might depends on the brand that you use.
