Default Re: Wire Fender Braces

The front fender has a stainless steel mounting tab that attaches to the fork crown....the tab is mounted through the fender......honestly, I see no way they could harm you if it failed. If it did fail....the top of the fender would just ride on the tire because it would still be supported by the lower fender stays....these are very lightweight fenders.

I've run these fenders off road on my cyclo-cross commuter bike and to be honest- I've beaten the unholy crap out of them and the fenders have never given me an ounce of trouble.

Sure, if your dumb enough to mount them and configure them with minimal clearance....then your just asking for trouble the first time your tire kicks up a large stone and it gets stuck in between the fender and the tire....but I digress.
If some's good...more is better and too much ain't enough.
