    Mountain bike rear "non-seatpost" fenders

    Hey There!

    My girlfriend just got a Trek 4300 with the smallest frame so a seatpost fender does not fit on it because it (the fender) would be touching the tire.

    The bike has V-Brakes so do you guys know of any rear fenders that do not attach to the seatpost so they can be attached to the frame.

    All input would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Pedro

    THE Dual Sport

    Still attaches to the seatpost but has no drop.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    SKS X-Blade

    I know it's not what you asked for but, before you write off the seatpost fender option, take a look at the SKS X-Blade. It has a pretty wide range of adjustment (up-down, and angle) and, in my experience, as long as you have about 1.5" of exposed seatpost (for mounting), you should be able to adjust the fender to give her proper clearance. Also, if she has, or plans to have, a seatpost-mounted rack, there are some fender options that mount to the bottom of the rack.

    I've had great luck with SKS products and would recommend them... just got another X-Blade for my backup bike from PricePoint for $17.

    check out SKS for a better seatpost mount (can adjust tilt, etc)
    Woodman has a nice one that mounts to canti mounts, comes with bolt extenders if she's not using disc brakes.
    I like the woodman, but it's not compatible with brake boosters.

    I used to use the THE fender, but the coverage of these others is much better (unless it's longer than a few yrs ago), and I had other problems with it (plastic cracked after the wind played havoc on it from being on the rear bike rack)... it comes with a seat seat mount option too though, although it was pain to install.

    I'm using a Planet Bikes clip-on style "Freddy Fender" on the back. I didn't like any of the seatpost style ones. I wanted something with better coverage towards the front. It's really easy to mount and remove. There is a small bracket that mounts to the cross bar between the seat stays (where V-brakes are?) and the end of the fender clips to the seat tube. Not the coolest looking sollution but it works well.
