Our Ground-Pounder steel rear fender fits tight on rear wheels in hardtail frames. No unnecessary space between rear tire and fender. Fenders have a built-in chain notch and two internal steel wire tunnels for routing of the tail and indicator wires. These tunnels will also provide extra ridgidity to the fender. This 9" wide fender comes undrilled to make it easy to set it up the way you like it and gives a 165° wheel coverage.
