Raleigh, Venture 4.0, fenders
I got the Venture 4.0 at the LBS, after they told the wife that it can have fenders. And they have fenders, but there made of plastic. I want good metal chrome fenders. So far all the LBS have said is that metal won't work but I can't see why that would be, if plastic will. I'm willing to make them fit myself if I can find a basic fender that will fit the rear frame. Anyone out there was done this or can point me in the right direction? I would greatly love the help.

Velo-Orange has nice metal fenders. I would measure very carefully to make sure you have clearance for them. You may have to "dent" them a bit to make them fit at the fork and the seat stays.

Ideas for you:

Portland Design Works makes some metal fenders called "Full Metal Fenders"

SKS makes some called Chromoplastics. Basically a thin layer of metal inside, laminated in plastic I believe.

Also, check out the FENDERS section on Peter White Cycles page. They have some very sharp looking stainless fenders.

WALD makes some metal fenders you can find on

this? Raleigh Bicycles Venture 4.0 - 2013 Lifestyle

if as pictured, you need wide 26" type..

SKS cromoplast is an aluminum- plastic composite .. i have 30 year old mudguards from them.

IE .. not all plastics are the same..

I could fit mudguards on that suspension fork . but cannot do it over the internet.
