Also, the tab makes it a little easier to unmount the fender since it has to move back as it comes down. I guess I had eschewed tabs because I didn't like the VO fender clamp thing on my commuting bike. Silly me, as that is one of the few things on that bike that *hasn't* broken.
If'n you were to need some stainless steel rack tabs, let me know. unterhausen had a bunch laser cut, I went in on the order with him.
