It is really good, especially for metric hardware. Lots of lengths, head styles, stainless, zinc, etc. Also a whole bunch of nylon or metal spacers, aluminum tube, that kind of thing. Plus the usual household type stuff.

Alright, next Q: Getting the stays to clear the front brake caliper. The fenders came with spacers, but not enough to get the end of the stay past the caliper. Is this where I'm supposed to get inventive or am I doing something wrong?

A bunch of presta nuts stacked up works great

I think I've got the front on. It looks shitty and is like 1mm from the tire at certain points. I found enough spacers and a long enough bolt. Also, the stays on the left side brush the caliper. And I think I need the extra spacers to mount the rear stays.

A lot of folks bend the lower stays to get them to clear the caliper. Wright Bros has a bigass vise that would be good for that.

Also, I have some bolt cutters for trimming the stays when you're ready.

Might be ready. At least ready for a second set of eyes to tell me what I've done wrong.

A friend just mentioned these fenders for people rolling with 650b x 48
Might be a good alternative to PB 27.5 ALX fenders.
Comes in black and silver

Price is an issue. 3x the planet bike version, even if you get velo orange/honjo/berthoud stays and hardware

Berthoud 26" x 60mm long fit SBH amazingly well. Boulder bike was selling them as 650b (26").

Portland Design Works has their 650b fender coming around soon. That could be a serious competitor for the Planet Bike, especially if the coverage is more complete.

'Doubt it'll stand up to the Honjos, though.

The 700x40 Berthoud on the rear of my bike got bad stick damages. I straightened the stays, they're fine.
Should buy another Berthoud, or go to something else? I seem to get better service life out of plastic fenders :(

Five-foot drops at speed on unstable terrain? Yep.

Thanks. Every other bolt fits excepts for that one.
Got a hardware store even closer than stone way. Right across the street. Just need to wait for them to open tomorrow.

I have a case of metric bolts from m3 to m8 in 5mm increment length ways because I was sick of never having what I needed.

What’s the max size that can fit under the 30mm pdw fenders?

I've got 25c Gatorskins under mine. The back will rub sometimes. I don't know if a 28 would work and not be rubbing constantly.
