Bicycle Fenders (Mudguards) from Harris Cyclery

Who Needs Fenders?

If you are a "fair weather" cyclist, you don't need fenders, but if you are a serious cyclist, and don't live in a desert climate, you really should have at least one bicycle with fenders.

Fenders by themselves won't keep you dry in a pounding rain, but they make a tremendous difference when you are riding roads that are wet from drizzle, recent rain, or snow-melt.

Even in hard rain, you will become wet with clean rain from above, but your body and bicycle will be protected from the mud and sand kicked up from dirty puddles and rivulets.

SKS

We carry the excellent German SKS (formerly called ESGE) fenders. They are made of laminated plastic/aluminum, and come in several widths. They are available in black, or in silver with black stripes.

ESGE/SKS fenders feature stainless steel hardware and the "securi-clip" breakaway mount for the front fender stays.

Fenders include the stays (struts) and the hardware to attach the stays to the fenders only.

Hardware that attaches to the bicycle will vary from bike to bike, and is not included with the fenders.

Quality Bicycle Products Special Order Catalogue

Mini and Clip-on Fenders

If you look at most bicycle catalogues, you'll find a wide variety of shorty or mini fenders, some that attach to the seatpost, some that attach to the fork crown, some that attach to the frame down tube.

These are crap!

Nobody who has ever ridden in the wet with real, full-coverage fenders would ever want those, so we don't sell the silly things.

Sheldon Fender NutSheldon Fender Nuts $12.95/set buy button

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.

Stainless Mounting Kits

Fenders don't generally come with the bolts that attach to the frame, or if they do, they're generally of crummy quality.

We feature high-quality stainless-steel Allen head cap screws and suitable washers for this purpose.

Standard Fender Mounting Kit $3.50 buy button

DESCRIPTIONThis kit includes everything you need to attach the fender stays to the eyelets. For bikes with caliper brakes, you will use the caliper centerbolts to secure the fenders to the brake bridge and fork crown. If you have cantilever brakes, your bike might have reflector bolts that will serve this purpose.

Deluxe Fender Mounting Kit $8.95 buy button

DESCRIPTIONEverything you might need to mount fenders to any type of bike that will accept fenders, including the center bolts with appropriate "radiussed" washers to fit snugly against curved surfaces of seatstay bridges and fork crowns.
