I've had several Wahl racks and rack/basket combos, and will testify that Wald does not skimp on metal or chroming! They are made of STEEL. Thanks for the link, but its broken. http://www.niagaracycle.com/advance...ender&osCsid=fd6a22d0a7488d3d90bbb5ce0ded77ce If that doesn't work, go to Niagaracycle.com and Search: for " Wald Fender" They look heavier than most, and it says "balloon/ 2.35" tire", but I'm still scared of fenders since I joined this board. Is it possible that some of these wrecks are caused by some road debris sticking between the tire and fender, breaking the mount? Why do most of these fenders have 1 little puny tab attached to the brake bolt, instead of at least a heavy bracket that goes up both sides of the fork steerer? I refuse to use any fender except something that can't jam on the wheel. In rainy weather I ziptie a 6" wide piece of corrugated plastic (painted garage sale sign) to the downtube and call it good enough. I hate riding it in the rain anyway.
