Fender Mounting Instructions
- Phillips head screwdriver
- 3.0 mm hex wrench
- 10 mm open-endend wrench
- wire cutter
We ship your fender kit with as many of the pieces installed as possible. This is how it looks when we ship it, but some pieces may have fallen out of place during shipping. Your fender kit should include the following: a front and rear fender (the rear is the larger one), 4 stainless steel stays, 4 black rubber tops, 4 stay screws with nylock nuts, 4 5mm screws and washers, a zip tie, and a black 6 mm bolt with washer and nut.
Note: We now include a clip attached to the rear fender with a corresponding bolt, washer, and nut as well as 2 additional zip ties. This clip attaches the rear fender near the rear brake bridge. A zip tie goes through each channel of the clip and attaches the clip to the seat stays or you can use the bolt to attach the clip through the hole in the brake bridge. The bolt supplied by the manufacturer is just barely long enough to get through the hole in the brake bridge and clip.
Place the front fender on the front tire with the mudflap on the rear of the tire. The metal tab that sticks up attaches to the fork. The tab should be on the front side of the fork. Insert the 6 mm bolt through the tab and through the hole in the fork. Place the washer and nut on the opposite side and hand tighten.
Remove the 2 front dropout fasteners (one on each side) with a 3mm allen wrench. Position the stays so that the eye hole is at the bottom of the fork. The black rubber topper on the stay should keep it from falling through the stay screw. Remove 2 5 mm screws and washers from the bag. Attach the stay to the fork with the screw. Do not over tighten the screw yet, just snug it up to keep the fender in place.
Snug the nuts on the stay screw with a 10 mm wrench. Position the fender where you like and tighten all nuts and screws. This may take a little tinkering as the fender may move a bit as you tighten a nut or screw on one side.
Now onto the rear. Remove the 2 rear dropout fasteners (one on each side) with a 3mm allen wrench.
Place the rear fender on the tire, again with the mudflap on the rear of the tire. Attach the stays to the rear dropout just as you did in the front with the remaining 5 mm screws and washers. Snug the nut on the stay screw just as you did in the front as well.
Thread the zip tie through the hole in the chain bridge (just in front of the rear tire at the bottom).
Now thread the zip tie through the hole in the bottom of the fender. At this point just get the zip tie started, but do not pull it tight.
Now attach the clip to the seat stays near the brake bridge by inserting a zip tie through each channel on the clip and around the seat stays or by inserting the bolt through the hole in the brake bridge and clip.
Once the fender is mounted where you like, pull all the zip ties tight and tighten the nuts and screws.
