The speedez fenders attach to the fork blades and seat stays via a series of rubber straps. This system sucks...avoid like the plague.
Good fenders are bolted to end of the steerer tube (up front) and to the brake bridge (in the rear), and to eyelets near the front and rear dropouts (or track ends).
The PB clip-ons snap onto an L bracket (in the front) that needs to be installed, and the rear simply snaps onto the brake bridge and the seat tube. You would think that these fenders would be less stable, but they are so light and rigid that they actually work very well and do not jostle over bumps. The thing I like about the PB clip-ons is that they provide almost the same coverage as fulls, do not rattle, and can be removed in about 10 seconds.
