    You obviously don't ride mud, I still get muddy but the most important thing about the fender is keeping mud outta ya eyes, ya can't ride if ya can't see, who cares what it looks like, start sounding like a rider istead of a posuer and help the guy out.



    FRH I use a Marzocchi fender for my 66, each model Marz has a specific fender in the FR range

    Theres lots of options out there, The, Acerbis, have a look around check out some online stores or your LBS to see what will fit your fork if not a Marz..

    I only run mine when wet/muddy in the dry I go without it.

    "THE" industries puts out a whole group of fenders. check out pricepoint.com and scroll down the name brands until you see "THE".

    Fenders rock in conditions where it is muddy and wet beyond all hope... try em out if you ever run into that kind of weather.

    Another nice fender is the crud catcher. This goes along your down tube. Keeps the rocks and crap out of your eyes and face. Easy install too.

    i really could have used a fender on our last day in whistler. couldn't see worth a sh!t with all the mud on my goggles, pull of the goggles and then you have mud in your eyes... bogus!

    next time i will have a fender!

    I've got a cut up bike tube stretched between the rear uprights on my Sunday for the sake of the shock and linkage but I find that much the same as the fork, if you ride fast enough, nothing will really help except goggles.

    Fenders cool? Not in my opinion. Useful? In the right conditions, absolutely.

    I do lots of wet riding and like to have them, still have to wear goggles. The marz ones are nice but I break them. Was just looking at the woodman headlock things and they have a fender threaded hole on the bottom, I'm getting me one. The rear fender doesn't work for me but if you have the right rear triangle you can fit some pieces in there that are better than nothing. Like the tube on the sunday setup posted already.

    I'm looking for universal fenders that are easy-on/off so I can take them off when I don't need them.
    This one looks good for the rear- http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...ls.php?id=9042
    I want to find a good one for the front.
    Also, what are shroud fenders?

    I believe these are what they mean by shroud fenders. They're mainly for commuter bikes and I don't know if you can get them in a size big enough for your tires (most commuters use 1.25" or smaller tires). They also might be more trouble than they're worth for offroad and they don't install and remove very easily.http://commutebybike.com/2005/05/26/kona-smoke/
