How important are fenders?
I just bought some Freddy Fenders and the front one is not compatible with my Old Man Mountain (700c) AC Lowrider front rack. That rack must use the lower eyelet. It doesn't fit any other way.... The fender also requires that same eyelet. I would use the higher one, but the fender arms would have to bend around the fork... it just doesn't work.
I tried using the same eyelet for both, but it bends the fender in a way that allows it to run the tire.
So... I am trying to decide. Do I take them back and spend the money on something else? Or do I just use a rear fender?
