The Full Metal Fenders are an elegant way of adding full coverage protection to your road bike.

The anodized alloy construction is lightweight, durable and stylish. Extra long mudflaps ensure that your feet stay dry, as does the rider on your wheel. Accents like laser etched graphics and an alloy head badge provide a few extra style points as well.

Like some "quick release" plastic fenders, the Full Metal Fenders are designed to fit road bikes that are typically difficult to install full coverage fenders on. Unlike flimsier plastic offerings, Portland Design Works has gone to great lengths to ensure totally secure attachment. They include special hardware to get around caliper brakes and under forks, and add-on mounts for bikes that lack eyelets to mount fender stays to. Safety release tabs ensure your wheels will keep turning even if debris gets lodged between the fender and tire.

The Full Metal Fenders are sold in a front and rear set and include mounting hardware. Available in two widths, the Race fender set measures 30mm wide, while the City fender set measures 45mm wide.

Great sturdy fenders. More robust mounting than SKS but you may need extra stuff for discs

These fenders are good looking and well made. The 'City' version works with knobby 35s (might go higher, haven't tried it).

I like the mounting system on these fenders - you aren't expected to bend the mounting arms like you are with the SKS's. It's a little bulkier, but it's more robust and way less of a pain.

My only issue with these fenders is that I couldn't affix the posts down near the dropouts on my front fork because the disc brake is in the way. The manual mentions an optional kit to do that, and I'm sure I could have figured something out at the hardware store, but I'd have been much happier had these come in the box.

As it was, my fork has mounting holes mid-fork as well, I used those, and it works, but the front fender is rattly and not as stable as it should be.

The disc brakes didn't create a problem in the back at all - because of the angle of entry for the support, they didn't get in the way there, and no extra fiddling was needed.

Planning ahead for the rainy season

Hard to rain fenders when it has not rained in weeks. I bought these fenders for a new multi-purpose bike (gravel, mud, rain, etc) in anticipation of the rainy season. They fit the bike well and I expect them will be permanently mounted as soon as the the monsoon season arrives.

Beautiful fenders

I've installed multiple fenders, and this was one of the easier ones to put on. It's pricey, yes (hence the 4 stars on value), but I expect it to last longer than the plastic ones do.

Good enough

Hard to have a truely universal fit. Was a little challenging fitting rear fender stays around my disc brakes. But still can't mount front fender because mounting bracket for fork is not long enough to reach the hole. Would imagine no problem with rim brake bikes.

Great fenders in need of some extra hardware

Purchased the wide (City) fenders to go on a Fyxation Crusher gravel bike.

Fenders are great, assembly was simple, rear fender mounting was also simple.

I am deducting 1 star from both overall and value because at this price I would expect more options for mounting the front fender.

My bike has a fork fender mounting hole on the back of the fork. The hole is higher than the included L tab hole and too low for the Portland Design Works long L tab. I am guessing the hole on the back situation is typical of carbon forks designed for disk brakes. It seems the front fender is designed for caliper brakes, only.

At this price, PDW should include maybe 1-2 other L brackets of different heights, to accommodate the various forks out there. There could also be one more mounting option for the L bracket on the front fender for hole on the back forks - as it stands the fender shifts down by the width of the fork crown.

I solved my front fender mounting problem by mounting the original L bracket on top of the fender, using some plumbing faucet seals to raise it about 4 mm. That they are made of rubber should help with rattles. Had to find a short metal strip for the inside of the fender, such that the force of the 2 nuts is distributed over a larger fender surface.

Once mounted, the fenders have stayed put and there is no rattling. Currently using them with Conti tires that measure about 30mm. To my eye, the fenders could take tires up to 35-38 mm, but I have not tried it yet.

Nice fender but short front

The fenders are nice and built really well. My biggest issue the length of the front fender before the fork. Most of the water on my shoes comes from the spray off the front tire. Longboards seem to have to longest front to prevent a very heavy spray and these fall very short. Its weird that most fender companies don't consider the front tire spray.

Best Full-Coverage Fenders for Road Bike

Installation was easy. The step-by-step instructions were clear and everything went together as expected the first time, which never happens to me. Clearance with 23C road tires is fine. They are beautifully made and their full coverage was a blessing today on salt-covered roads, wet with snow run-off. After 2 hours my feet and back were completely dry and the bike much cleaner than I expected.

Best fenders for a road bike

I installed these fenders about a month ago. They were really simple to attach to my Specialized road bike. They look great on the bike, they aren't very noticable, and work really well. In my opinion, you wont be dissapointed if you buy these fenders.

Best Fenders!

My city bike has full time fenders. I replaced my last set with the PDWs and I could not be happier. They look classy and well built. The hardware is minimal yet highly effective. And, while the built in buddy flap is helpful for the rider it is easily removed to make way for a proper buddy flap for group rides. If you care about your bike I highly reccommend these!

Very nice fenders

The PDW fenders were a bit of a hassle to install. The 23c tires on my bike had stretched to the point that the fenders would not fit on my '08 Madone. No problems after using a new tire. Changing tires will be a pain. Fenders don't work with bolt on axles...like my fixie. Great coverage makes it worth it though.

Great full cover fenders

Great looking and solidly built. These fenders attach without too much fuss. As for size, I started them off with 25mm tires after hearing a few folks managed to get them to fit. The front wheel fit easily with plenty of clearance between the tire and the fender. The rear wheel was a little more difficult to get to work, and with minimal clearance. To really work without rubbing I had to run the tire pressure at 80-90psi instead of 100-110psi. In the end I went back to 23mm tires and they work wonderfully.

Great for their intended purpose

These fenders are very well designed and made, and will do a great job providing full coverage on a road bike with fairly shorts stays. People behind you in the paceline will thank you. However, there are a few caveats due to the fact that they are designed for a single purpose. First is that if your stays are a bit longer (cross bike, etc - mine are 420mm IIRC) you'll likely have to drill the bottom of the rear fender and space it out. Second is that they really only fit 23mm tires in most cases. If you have a lot of clearance in the fork crown you can go larger (I run 25 but on a cross frame), but make sure you take careful measurements. So, if you're planning on running these on a road frame with 23cs, then they're great (and indeed that's what PDW states rather explicitly). If you're planning on running them on something else, YMMV.

Beautiful and functional

I just installed these on my Trek Pilot which has the higher clearance Shimano road brake calipers. They are beautiful, and the flaps go down low enough that you will be able to ride the local fast ride without being relegated to the back (no rooster tail)

I have no front fender mounts and the little brackets will require removal of the skewer for wheel removal but it is all pretty straightforward and so beautiful compared to the old clamp on fender mounts that I had.

I love the single strut construction (easier to move your hands around when removing the wheel) and both fenders fit superbly.

The best available

These fenders are so far and away the best fenders available for a road bike that they really put everything else to shame. They install relatively easily, fit exceptionally well, and look great. They even have a buddy flap that is goes low enough that you don't have to fasten part of an old water bottle to the bottom of your rear fender.

The fenders are all metal and very rigid. The mounting system holds the fender in place very well. About the only possible negative is that the close fit allows pine needles and leaves to get caught between the tire and fender, but this isn't hard to deal with after a ride.
