Fortunately, it's mostly a mild annoyance & no real safety hazard, I've also not managed to bust a front - but as they're on an ebike with "no vibration" I thought I'd mention it is all
Thanks for the warning BA. Yeah I know they can crack. I took one set off a china girl that started cracking after only a few hundred miles. I do plan on keeping a close eye on them.

These were just sitting around in my garage collecting dust. Now that I've pioneered a way to mount them, I'll be on the lookout for some replacements that will be more durable. It would be easy to replace these fenders, and utilize the same mounts.
