SKS/ESGE Commuter II Silver Fenders - B65, 700c (29er)
B65 Commuter II, 700c (29er)New Model for 2015.
The P65 is for 26", this new B65 model is longer and has a larger radius for 700c (29er) and it's still good for 26"/650B+/27.5+. Appropriate for tires up to 2.125" (55mm) wide.
Note: If the stays that come with the B65 fenders aren't long enough for your bike (unusual), then get the longer stay fender hardware kit. The longer fender stay kit hardware is a little different than the standard B65 fender hardware (thicker as well as longer stays) but it still works.
These are the best fenders you can get. They're made of a gummy, recycled plastic that's hard to crack. We like these over all others.
Get the P35 if you use 700c wheels and tires skinner than 28. Get the P45 Longboards if you ride up to a 700c or 650b x 38mm size.
Get the P50 for 700c or 650b tires up to ~45mm.
For 26" tires up to 2" use the P55.
We use the P50s for all our 650B wheeled bikes (except the Bombadil, that needs the P50 or B65) and it works and looks perfect.
TIP: Get some reflective tape and run a strip of it up the back fender. It sticks great and shines bright, and if you're ever out at night without a light, at least you've got this. You're going to be seen. Note: After fitting and adjusting the fenders, you may want to trim the stays so that they end at or below the diameter of the fender. This reduces the risk of scraping or cutting yourself on the exposed ends (even though the stays may be capped). Trim with a bolt cutter or a Dremel tool.
Another tip: For some bikes, the B65 will be too wide at the chainstay-bottom bracket-front derailer junction. The front derailer or chain might rub against the fender or even prevent shifts to the small chainring. In this case do what we do: Using snips and a dremel tool or hand file, cut away a small portion of the fender to clear the chain and front derailer (when shifted into the lowest cog in back,) like so:
Sold as a pair (one bike's worth) with all of the necessary hardware and struts.
