In the past ten years, Portland has turned from a city shadowed by Seattle's vibrant seaside culture to becoming America's cycling sweetheart. It's paved the way for advocacy, it houses countless frame builders, and it's a hub for the two wheeled culture. And out of this cycling hot spot, innovators like Portland Design Works are thriving with thoughtful, quality products like the Full Metal Fender. Made from anodized aluminum with laser graphics and an embossed badge, the Full Metal fenders distance themselves from flimsy plastic fenders. They offer a full wrap coverage, including rubber mudflaps to prevent rooster tails from spraying other riders. The anodized silver finish is a beautiful complement to any high end road bike. Special hardware helps fit the fenders around caliper brakes and under forks, and add on mounts allow fitting to bikes that lack eyelets. These measures ensure that the Full Metal fenders will fit just about any road bike. For safety, release tabs let your wheels keep turning if debris gets lodged between the fender and tire. The Portland Design Works Full Metal Fender fits frames with tires up to 700 x 23c.
