Carbon road bike with fender mounts

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Carbon road bike with fender mounts

Looking for a road bike with full coverage fender mounts. Not endurance geo like Roubaix or Domane. Looking for a racier geometry. But I canít find a single one with fender mounts (ie Tarmac, Madone, Allied Echo, etc).



Also, not interested in band aid solutions like SKS Raceblade Longís and etc.



Any suggestions?

You don't generally see fender mounts on road racing bikes...But perhaps someone will know of an exception.

you can find fenders that do not need fender mounts. Such as: https://sks-us.com/collections/fende...ts-700-x-25-32

The only one Iíve come across is a CAAD13. Which is an aluminum bike. I may go with this if I canít find a carbon bike.

Carbon+Fenders drifts towards all-road/gravel. Pure race bikes eschew mounts. The geometries, however, are pretty close such that dropping the stem may be all you need to do.

Cervelo Caledonia
Ribble Endurance SL Disc
Ribble CGR
3T Exploro Race/Max (not the Pro/Team)
Focus Paralane --comes with even.
Trek Domane (sorry)
C'Dale Synapse Carbon

The Rondo HVRT is a beauty, but alas, no mudguard mounts.

There's a couple of ways to mount fenders without mounts. Do some searching for something like p clam fender mount or attachment and there's a product called Axiom fender runner which go on an axle and provide a fender or rack mount. I'm sure there's other ideas, but these are the two I'm familiar with.

I have an Orbea Avant, 2014, that has fender mounts that are not seen unless mounting fenders or racks on them. It is considered an endurance frame set, but, IMO, it is quite racy and aggressive. It has terrific balance and a very nice ride. I have no idea if newer models have the same feature.

I just picked up a Cannondale Synapse and can vouch that it has full fender mounts. It is an endurance bike but it handles very nicely and there is nothing sluggish about the geometry.
