I like my SKS Shockblade/X-Blade - But I dunno if that's the coverage you're looking for
Full round fender are really good at keeping water and dirt off from u. Yes, what u say is correct that they did keep dirt. But its a trade off thing. U can't have the best of both world.nony said:Over time, I've discovered that full fenders are a trade-off for commuting. Initially, they were wonderful, kept water and grime off me and my bike, BUT if you work on your bike, they are a PITA. Fenders collect dirt and are hard to clean off. In addition, it is critical that I inspect my tires for glass debris, but with full fenders, they are covered by the fenders.
My solution was flat fenders. They throw off water on the sides, so you get a little wet, but they are easy to clean and inspect your tires. On my other commuter, I do use mtn. bike fenders like the first poster which works well, too.
Otherwise, I don't think I'll go back to full rounded fenders again for commuting.

I think mine do.mtbxplorer said:Has anyone noticed their mtb front fender catching the wind?
I'll notice my front fender shimmy in a strong crosswind.mtbxplorer said:Has anyone noticed their mtb front fender catching the wind? First ride with them today & wasn't sure how much was my imagination, how much was the fender & how much was the rest of me & bike catching the wind gusts. Last week in snow (before fenders) there were some nice spots windblown of snow, but the gusts tried to push me into the drifted areas. I felt a little too much like the person I saw in the paper learning to kiteboard - she forgot to let go & got blown up in a tree near a power line until the F.D. rescued her.
