These are amazing. My brother just reworked part of his manufacturing process to improve the thickness consistency and tested it out on some new designs. I'm amazed with his ability to create new designs. If you need something special don't hesitate to ask.
It's hard to believe that these pictures were taken on a bike trail in Cedar Rapids, IA but they were. My son and I went out on our SS's for a couple hours on a very beautiful Monday afternoon.
MKFenders with the new hardware installed for about a month and a half with zero issues. In the past with plastic fenders, I've had to tweak, bend, twist, and tighten to get the fenders to stay so they won't rub on the tires…and would still have issues. These wooden fenders are solid...as a rock. I've ridden, gravel, wet gravel, pavement, jumped curbs, pot holed alleys and the hardware is still solid as can be. I think the fenders’ strength comes from the way they are shaped and the several coats of epoxy that are applied before the marine grade varnish. Love em.
As you can see in the install procedure we have a 45mm fender being mounted to a LHT. Here we've installed MK Fenders on my BD.
We did use two hoops in the rear because the brake bridge is so close to the bottom bracket attachment area and wanted to split the difference. These are 65mm width and fit great with a 26" wheel with a 2.2 in. tire. The fenders are curved and shaped like a fender should be with just a little flat section to accommodate the wider tire.
Here's a set of 45mm, 26" on the Team Skin bike...and yes this the bike with the radio that you can hear comming for about a mile. Notice how the standoff helped with the rack attachment and also the custom attachment in the BB area.
Remember every install is a custom install.
And finally these are 35mm walnut beauties installed on one of our favorite tandems...
