Fenders are being accredited as an ‘accessory’ to cycling like clothing is an accessory to getting around. Rainwater from above can be easily taken care of by appropriate weather gear, but wet grime and splash from the ground will require intensive clean-up. So if you prefer not to mar your sharp fashion style or increase your maintenance, a nice pair of fenders is what you need.

    Velo Orange Leather Washers for Mounting Fenders

    , , ,
    Essential to the proper mounting of metal fenders, they are also useful for racks and other accessories. Use one or two of the washers between the fender and the fork crown, the seat stay bridge, the chain stay bridge, and between the fender and racks mounted to the fender. They are intended to dampen vibration, lessen the likelihood of stress cracks, and reduce noise from pebbles and twigs bouncing into the fenders. These washers are made for us by the same company that supplies Steinway Pianos with all their washer needs. The price is for a pack of six, colors may vary. OD is 12mm; ID is 5mm.

Note: Full fenders like those from Velo Orange and Sim-Works often require several mounting points on the bike’s fork and the bike frame’s rear stays and don’t come with holes pre-drilled. The stays will also require cutting to length so best left to an experienced bike mechanic. The end result means you get a profile that’s just right.
