StarStarStarStarStar I'm very satisfied with the performance of these fenders.

Pros

I had a set of these fenders installed on a prior bike several years and was extremely satisfied then. They are more durable and tighter (no rattling) than the plastic ones. They also have a good appearance. When I recently got a new bike I wanted the same type of fenders. The bicycle shop didn't carry them anymore (tho' the shop owner had them on his bike) so I searched online and happily found a vendor that carried them.

Cons

I had them installed at the bike shop and would have had some difficulty myself as there had to be some configuring to make them fit due to the disc brakes. I don't think they charged me. I'm a good customer! These are the only fenders I will buy for a bicycle. I highly recommend them.

StarStarStarStarStar Better than the plastic version

Ownership: a month

Pros

Durable,lightweight,works

Cons

Had to modify for my disc brakes

Other Thoughts

I had the plastic version and it cracked at the bottom rear bolt after about 1500 miles on my Surly disc trucker.These appear to be the same but the aluminum should last longer.I also used rubber washers at the bolt on points.The only problem is the plastic piece that bolts to the front fork on the brake side needed to be removed.It's too bulky and the spacer provided still didn't help.I eventually just took the old plastic version's stay and used that instead.Also, the stay on the brake side has to be bent around the brake.But it looks good,rides quietly,and keeps me dry.

StarStarStarStarStar Sharp looking fenders!

Pros

I have a new white Giant CypressDX LIV and added these fenders last month...now my bike looks great! My husband installed them, and although it took a bit of work he got it done in 20 minutes. The fenders appear durable and well made! My husband is now getting a set in black to match his new bike!

Cons

The only issue we had was the attachment wires needed to be trimmed to fit my wheels....if this wasn't done, they stuck out past the back of the front fender which hit my feet while peddling. Those wires are very thick and not easy to cut!

Other Thoughts

Not only will I be protected from road splash while riding in the rain, but they also added a retro look to my bike, which is what I was going for!

StarStarStarStarStar 29er Bike Fenders

Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Easy to install. Keeps all the road junk off of the front of the bike frame as well as the crank set and front derailleur.

Cons

Not all bolts supplied will allow you to mount these to a bike with disc brakes and not all bolts are long enough. I had to go the the hardware store and buy extra stainless steel bolts to mount these fenders. I also had to cut part of the rear fender to give additional clearance to the front derailleur.

Other Thoughts

Modern Bike is a great company to deal with. I have bought many items from them and they really ship things fast.

StarStarStarStarStar Well designed and built fender at a reasonable price.

Pros

The title says it all. I have Planet Bike Fenders for all of my bikes and have no reason to consider any other brand. They've made design improvements over the years and it is as good or better than any other fender on the market.

Other Thoughts

Would be nice if it came with some extensions, or longer slotted extenders, for mounting on the cross member on the seat stays and on suspension corrected forks.

StarStarStarStarStar well thought out product.
