Hey Dual Suspension Fans

Just letting all of you know about a cool little product I found on the web. I have this on my bike, have had for a year and a half, and let me tell you, my laundry bill has been cut in half due to this little $15 dollar item, and it makes you DS bike look even cooler than already does. Just click and go.

Fenders are good on ANY commuting bike. I also have some cheap ~20 fenders on my commuter, front and rear. Makes riding in the rain fun.

If you could show me a fender that fits to a Cannondale Fatty fork, then I'd be impressed.

Allister, try this link, it's grom the same website, I don't know if you looked around while you was there, but they do have front fenders that are pretty much universal. https://www.headlandbike.com/diggler.htm
Now to me, the one pictured looks kinda dorky, I would prefer one that is a solid peice from front to back(on the front shock). And I would have no idea what would fit a Cannondale, so no hate mail on the website provided please.

Thanks for trying russhawk. I've seen the ones on that site. They screw in to the bottom of the centre of the crown, as do pretty much all the front fenders I've ever seen. Unfortunately that's where the air valve is on my shock. I need something that'll attach to the fork blades themselves. I suspect I'll have to make/modify something myself.
