    26 LHT Wheels & Fender Compatibility

    http://ecom1.planetbike.com/7027_5.html

    Would these fit my 26 inch wheeled LHT? They seem pretty wide to me...

    They fit great, loads of room to spare even.

    Those are the only ones that should go on your LHT!

    Well... IMO of course.

    I use the 60mm sks fenders with 2.0 wide tires and that works great.

    So they obviously fit then... the people at Surly are telling me that the 60 mm width is too big... WTF?

    The 60mm do pinch inward very slightly below the fork crown due to the wide size. Not a problem with any fender that has a little bit of flexibility. Just don't use wood, and they will be fine.

    These are SKS P45 (45mm) fenders on my 52cm. Mudflap is homebrew.

    All of the posts I've read on these fenders say they require some scooping around the fork to fit. P50's fit with no problem. I have PB 50's on my 54cm LHT and they work and fit great.

    I have those in silver on my LHT, they fit fine, and if I want to go to a wider tire, I'm good.
    When I was young I prayed to God for a new bike. Then I figured out God didn't work that way, so I stole one and prayed for forgiveness.
