Electra Straight 8 and fenders, help please, thanks


I write this email from Switzerland and sorry for my english.

I own an Electra Straight 8 (8 speeds).

This bike is awesome, it's the most comfortable bike i have owned and I tell everyone around me how cool this bike is, but without fenders when it rains it's very difficult, and the rear fender is too short.

I can see that Electra sells all fenders for all its bikes except the straight 8 (and the ghostrider, rat fink). Why do not sell a pair of fenders for the straight 8?

This is the only thing missing on this bike, it's a shame, we should be able to have the choice to put the fenders or not.

I'm looking for metal, matte black fender.

Do you know a brand that manufactures this type of fenders for these special tires (24'' x 3'')?

Thanks for your help and time.

I wonder if any Planet Bike fenders would work?

Too bad Electra didn't consider wet weather use of the bike.

SKS has several models available in 24", but they call them "mudguards" . Maybe some of them will accommodate the 3" tyre? Seeing that you're in Switzerland, these should be readily available to you (they're in Germany).



Oh, and welcome to Bike Forums!

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
