    Product: Planet Bike 700c Hardcore Recumbent Rear Fender
    Ownership: a month
    Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

    Pros

    Looks and works great
    Straightforward installation
    Ease of adjustment

    Cons

    Being a somewhat universal fit there's some adaptation needed.
    Not a fan of the big white logo but that's easy to fix.

    Other Thoughts

    This went on a Lightning P-38. When I got it I held it up against the wheel and it looked too large. I called and was assured you can pull it in with the stay adjustment, and I realized that might actually make it less likely to squeak. (It's silent.)

    I had to make a small mod where it mounts to the chain stay bridge, because that's where the P-38 mounts its rear brake. So it's kind of crowded in there. No problem, I turned the straight slot into a T slot with a round file and zip-tied loosely so as not to stress the plastic. Worked fine.

    Adjusting the fender stays to hold the fender in the right curvature took some time but wasn't hard. Taking my time resulted in a straight-from-the-factory look, which was helped by the very nice-looking stay fittings at the fender. (The Cascadia steel fittings look too Adjust-O-Matic to look original.)

    A little tweaking to center the fender and it was done. The plastic is terrific at taking little (and big) hits, flexing and coming right back where it was. (Like when I'm squeezing cumbersome P-38 into, and peeling it out of, a tiny econo-box of a car.) VERY damage resistant, which is important on a component that is flimsy by nature.

    Modern Bike had a good price, shipped quickly and were helpful with the initial size/curvature question I'll be back.
