    Disc-friendly fenders?

    I'm looking for some disc-friendly fenders for my Salsa Vaya. I've tried SKS fenders, but the stays won't clear the front caliper, and they're too short to attach to the low-rider bosses.

    Any suggestions/recommendations?

    I uuse the SKS on my Vaya. I bought some extra nylon spacers and a longer screwed on the brake side. Its worked great for the past 2 years / 10,000 miles

    Planet Bike Cascadia's come with the spacers and longer screws you need to clear disc brakes.

    I use the SKS ones on my Pompetamine.

    I spaced them out AND I bent the stays so I could use a shorter bolt and spacer.

    I just bent the stays on my Planet Bike fenders when I had an interference problem. Previous bike, so no pic I'm afraid.

    I used these to space the fenders out on the left side

    Not beautiful, but they work fine, and you won't notice unless you look real hard.
