Sheldon Fender Nuts $12.95/set
Also available in X-long version for carbon forks.Traditional fender hardware has not changed since the days of exposed nuts holding brake calipers to the frame/fork. However, most newer caliper brakes use "recessed mounting." This has required mounting the tab on the front of the fork, which reduces clearance under the fork crown, and also rotates the front fender forward so it provides less protection to your feet (and your drivetrain.)
The Sheldon Fender Nut permits mounting the front fender tab behind the fork crown where it belongs.
In addition, the use of Sheldon Fender Nuts permits periodic removal/re-installation of the fenders without disturbing the centering adjustment of your brake calipers.
Standard 6mm "recessed" brake nut with longer internal threading and extension on the back for a 6mm mounting bolt
Install brake caliper normally, and mount fender to nut with a 6mm bolt
Includes a 13mm front brake nut and a 10mm rear brake nut
A pair of Fender Nuts should fit most steel and Aluminum road frames and forks.
