26" Smooth Fenders, 60mm - Silver and Noir
These fenders have a timeless, smooth profile and are highly polished. They're 60mm wide, designed for 26" wheels, and work with tires up to 52mm wide. We include a hardware kit to work with almost any type of mounting in the same finish as the fenders.
- Fenders are made from aluminum alloy for strength while staying lightweight
- Rear fender is 110cm long and the front is 80cm long
- Both come pre-drilled for stays. Front is pre-drilled for a fork crown mount
- Hardware kit includes: 5mm polished aluminum stays, R-clips and screws, L bracket, reinforcement plates, stay-to-fender closed eyelet bolts, fork crown daruma, sliding bracket, leather washers, and detailed installation instructions
Velo Orange fenders are designed to be full coverage, which means that you and your bike's drivetrain will stay clean of road muck and grime. Both front and rear fenders have full wrap around the width of your tires to eliminate spray in all directions.

Took a little patience but they are fine.
These keep me dry! nothing else you could really ask for
Installed these on my '87 Peugeot US Express which was Rene Herse Rat Trap Pass Tires 26x2.3". The tires only measure out to 2.0" on both front and rear(must be the width on these old rims), but clearance is perfect with these fenders, and there appears to be some room should I choose to upgrade the rims at some point. Don't think I'll be able to fit the full 2.3" if they ever inflate that much, but these fenders technically aren't designed to work that big anyways.
Installing the fenders was a little hassle. The included hardware did not come with a bolt long enough for the rear fender at the chainstay bridge mount. So I had to run to the hardware store and pick up a longer bolt, only about 0.25$ so not a big cost. The front fender hanging bolt (The one that mounts to a through bolt at the fork "brake" hole) was also not long enough. It says to use the included large rubber washer and large metal washer. I couldn't fit both washers between the fender and the fork, and still have room for a nut on the inside of the fender. I decided to go with just the rubber washer and make it work. I probably could have gone with an L-Bracket mount, but I have a cantilever mount at the hole as well so mounting inside the fork was the best option for me.
Other than those two things I've been very happy with the fenders, and think they are well worth the price. Just know if you have a fat chainstay bridge you may need an extra bolt or two.
The fenders were exactly as described delivery was delived within reasonable time. Very pleased
