Where can I find fenders?
#1
Great Website! My son and I really enjoy the instruction. Can you give some input on where to get short fenders, or fenders of any type, what to look for when selecting fenders and the benefits to rider and bike of having fenders?
Thanks again for such an excellent cycling must have website!

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your feedback and question. Most bike shops should have a good selection of fenders, or you can order them online here

The wider and longer your fenders are the more protection you'll get. Short fenders only give a little bit of coverage, but they fit better on some bikes. The benefits of fenders are to keep the tires from spraying water up and onto yourself while you're riding.

Also some bikes are not capped the bottom of the Seat tube (talking MTB's) or the middle shaft of the forks. I usually just take a piece of plastic and edge it out with my hobbyist razor and apply a little tape to seal it. Then install the fenders. I have seen a few versions of removable fenders but I am still looking for a pair that goes on/off fast and easy.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
