Thats why I'm asking everyone's opinions. I dont know which I want to do. Dont know too many guys around me that have done a 26". So I figured I would go to the source and ask on here. Just want to hear what people think about each so I can figure out which way to go.
Sut please don't think that we are being difficult and don't want to help. Helping is wht this place is all about. It is just that there are 50 different fenders out there and they are all pricey. Me personally I don't like the wrap fender as I think it makes the bike look like an OCC chopper. Not a huge fan of the big fl style fendErs as I feel they are to boxy and cover up to much of the wheel that I just bought. I went with the glendyne hybrid fender as it is the best of both worlds. And another bonus is that it is 12 gauge steel. Check out all of the popular manufactures to see what look you like. Don't look at their catalog but at their completed bikes. Also pick up some motorcycle mags for ideas. And use caution around this site. It gets EXPENSIVE!!!,!
Bill.....I like the FL but prefer the way the wrap shows off the wheel more.
Crutter... I didnt mean to sound ill or anything. I appreciate all the help from everyone. I agree with you. I'm not sure of the way the FL covers up the wheel that I just spent big money on. I will check out that glenndyne fender. I know all too well what you said about the site. I had planned on doing the 26 next winter but,with this site, I couldnt resist any longer. Thanks for the help homie.
Like the guys are saying there is no functional difference in styles. Biggest difference being fiberglass or steel. I prefer fiberglass for the weight savings. Fiberglass holds up surprisingly well. I used one for well over 50k miles on my old bagger. If you get a chance lift a fiberglass and a metal 26" fender. And see for yourself the substantial weight difference. And a bonus is the fiberglass is cheaper.
