      Comments about Planet Bike Freddy Fenders Hardcore:

      I bought these so I could commute in wet weather on my Cannondale CAADX 105. The CAADX is a cyclocross bike, and has extra clearance at the front fork, and also has a cramped area where the chain-stay meets the seat tube. Therefore, to get these to work, it took some ingenuity and tools. To get the rear fender to be able to clip onto the 'cross bar' on the chain-stay(near the seat tube), I needed to make the clip on the fender narrower. I used a Dremel tool to accomplish this. The front fender mounting clip wasn't nearly long enough for the CAADX's considerable clearance, so I had to fabricate an extender. With all that done, now the fenders fit quite nicely and provide good protection.

        Comments about Planet Bike Freddy Fenders Hardcore:

        I wanted a set of fenders to make my old fat tire mountain bike commuter friendly in foul weather. They had to look good, fit well and do the job. These units hit the mark in all areas. My bike has plenty of mounting points so installation was a breeze. They look like they were made for the bike. I bought the 60mm width and they fit over 26x2 1/8 City Slicker tires with plenty of clearance. No problems with my racks and panniers either. Very pleased!

        Nice and wide with mudflaps. Excellent fenders. The newer model caps on the stay-rods are "way better" than the earlier models. More hardware might be nice for those who do not have the selection on-hand that an avid cyclist might have. I did modify the rear fender bottom-bracket clip so that I could pass a bolt completely through the clip and the bottom-bracket chain-stay bridge.

              The installation directions were not particularly clear and it isn't clear where the screws on the struts should go.

                Front fender went on very easily, but had to use larger screws for the frame attachment on my '88 Schwinn World Sport. Rear fender was a bir more of a challange to install. I had to modify the mounting hole of the rear fender hanger through which the rear brake bolt connects to the frame in order to raise the fender up to keep it from rubbing on the tire. After making the modifacation no rubbing on the tire. Fenders look great.

                  Product is used for recreational cycling. Riding gravel road there is the occasional mud or horse dropping. These fenders give full coverage to keep the mud off of the shifters and the stripe off of the jacket. Tried a luggage rack,that was a waste.

                  Fenders installed quickly and are adjustable to accommodate different tire sizes. I have 700c X 38 tires and they work well for these.

                  These fenders are a must have for any commuter. This is my second bike with planet bike fenders.

                    Comments about Planet Bike Freddy Fenders Hardcore:

                    The product description needs more information about how the fenders attach to the bike. I couldn't use any of the supplied hardware and ended up using zip ties for 100% of the installation. Seems to be working fine so far.

                    More details on the dimensions and specifics on the installation would also have been helpful before purchasing.

                      Comments about Planet Bike Freddy Fenders Hardcore:

                      Buy with caution these are designed to work with bicycles that have bar as the chain stay bridge not a plate with a fender screw hole. Therefore they to do not work with the Trek 7100 without modification.

                      Install: The front fender install easily with no problems. Plenty of clearance. The read fender required me cutting about 1/8 inch off the front of the fender, also had to cut of the metal chain stay bridge clip. All that was to allow for the hole to align with the screw hole on my chain stay bridge. After all that it fit, well almost. Under weight it started to wear against the tire. So, at the bridge I unscrewed it and used the zip tie option to tie the fender to my rack. This gives another 1/8 in clearance. Also, if you use a rack that attaches to the frame you will need longer screws for the rear that are not included. This should be expected, but I forgot and had to scrounge for screws that were long enough.

                      With my weight they work fine with no rubbing, not sure what will happen when fully loaded. That said I will probably just change the tire out. The current tire is a Trek OEM tire with a high profile, I have some new ones that are not as tall, that should give me another 1/8 in or so.

                      Over all once installed the fenders look good and are not in the way. I am answering yes to; I would recommend them to a friend, but not all installs are easy.
