    No good THE Pro series DH fender - WTF is it joke??

    Well , I thought that I am going to get nice fender for my bike for rainy days:
    When I got this fender , I thought that it is a joke from Wallmart and real one is comming , but no more packages showed up after two weeks so I took it seriously. There is NO way to install original bracket on my 888 , but they call it "PRO SERIES DH FENDER". I quess I use wrong fork for DH. So after 1/2 hour of bending original bracket so it would fit , I found another problem - screw with rubber piece and bolt (still spinning) so I can not tighten it in order to install it on my fork. So, my question is , does anybody here use this blink blink piece of plastic with success?? Thanks Rob

    I had to bend the sh!t out of mine to make it fit my 888, also you have to really torque the bolt down and it takes a long time, I ended up using a drill with an allen bit because it was taking too long. It really is a crappy fender design.

    Cool , we found another idiot !!! Just kidding jamesdc I finaly got mine on my bike , just wanted to ask , did you ride your bike with that fender ? I worry about , that cheap thin plastic is going to bend left/right/up and down when I get some speed. I would like to keep this fender just because I think I am going to use it for about 20% of my riding time and I do not feel like I want to spend $30+shipping for one more fender. I sure should do research before , but damage is done so I have to deal with what I have. Rob

    I ran one for a season, but bent the crap out of it in a crash and gave up.

    When I did run it, I ditched their piece of dung wedge bolt thingy and smacked a star nut into the bottom of the steere tube. Worked beautifully.

    I bought mine for basically the same reason, it had rained a little tiny bit for the first time last year and everything was sticking to my tires and getting flung in my face. almost crash cuz I kept getting **** in my eyes.

    it's weird they don't make any for the '08 66, there should be something out there. I'll keep an eye out for ya!

    Do you have any local bike shops that stock fenders? I would rather pay a few bucks more and have one that fits rather than guessing on a mail order item.

    Fenders don't work that great for keeping mud / rocks out of your face. IMHO the best bet for that is the tube trick (you see pro's doing it all the time on the World Cup) Just an old flayed open DH tube stretched from your lower crown to the arch on your fork... works like a charm! i'll see if i can find a pic.

    If your riding on a rainy day, why do you care if you get some mud on you?
    Thats half the fun of the rain!
