Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

It's for a 26" (MTB) wheel. It'd be best to go with something for 27" or 700c wheels.

Since you'll be looking around for a different fender anyway, I'd strongly suggest looking into something with full coverage. Fenders like the one you linked often sit far from the tire and cover little of the tire surface. Full fenders make a world of difference if you plan to ride in any serious weather.
