    where exactly are you having problems fitting them? I've installed fenders on a few avalanches, and they're not easy, but doable. mostly the planet bike kind.

    the ones i bought were made by zefal (i think that is the name)

    the loop part that is suppoe to wrap around the downtube is to small and keeps popping off. Also my front fork doesent have a hole in it where the bolt goes through to fasten the front fender.

    I tried jiffy rigging it with zipties and i couldn't get the wheels to stop rubbing.


    i will check out planet bike fenders.

    Thanks

    for some reason I thought you were having trouble with the rear.
    For the front you want a fender that just attaches to the fork crown. They're made for suspension forks. they don't have the same coverage as the full fender, but they're easy to install
