Here are some cool finish options. How about a translucent black finish....after all you still want them to know they are wood!

See this pugs with fenders at Geoffs Bike and Ski in Iowa City,  Iowa!

Glossy enough to see your reflection.....don't you look good!
Just a note to the installer...make sure that 2 stand-offs are used on the front and rear struts.  Not a single like in the picture above.

Look at the clean and stylish hardware....solid as a rock!

Remember 2 stand-offs on the front and rear struts.

Wrap these fenders as much or as little as you want......wrap is your choice.

Looks black from a distance but get close and the wood magically appears.    Mount the front and rear  fenders with 2 stand-offs on the struts for that rock solid mount.  Don't want that install to be floppy!

Is this what you've been waiting for....Mounted and being put to use. Keeping you dry and in everyone's eye!!

See these Maple/Walnut fenders at World of Bikes in Iowa City,  Iowa!

Notice the double stand-offs on the rear of the fender which gives the fender great stability.

Wow......the blue frame makes the fenders really pop!

And look at all of that beautiful wood to look at!!  Can't tell me you can find metal or plastic that will look that cool! They are way more solid anyway!

Wrap as little or as much as you want.

This set of hickory fenders ended up in Red Deer,  Alberta Canada

Mark - Got the fenders installed this weekend (took me about 4 hours). I was able to keep the front derailleur with a small bit of grinding for clearance. They are absolutely drop dead beautiful and the workmanship is first class. I get plenty of comments along with disbelief that are made from wood. Even my wife concedes they are classy. I've attached a couple of pics of the installation - hope you can make use of then. I will be passing your cards around at some of the local bike shops when I show off the Pugsley.

Thanks again for the great product - I'm very, very pleased.
