A lot of bikes, particularly performance road bikes, have next-to-no clearance between the wheel and the frame, leaving little space for a traditional fender. So what is a Portlander supposed to do? Hang up the bike 8 months out of the year? Never!
River City Bicycles has designed an workaround – a Reacharound – that allows for split-fender installation on bikes that won’t take a traditional fender. Built exclusively for River City Bicycles, each set of Reacharounds includes three special fender-mounting brackets (two for the back and one for the front).
We also include instructions for splitting and mounting a fender set. If at all possible, have a trustworthy bike mechanic take care of the installation, since each bike is different and a perfectly good set of fenders will need to be cut. Your installation may require additional hardware.
