Today is a rare January thaw in Boston, and I'd rreally love to be riding. But I need to do more work on my bike before I can. So I come to you all:


My brother gifted me with a set of used aluminum? fenders for my bike.

Alas, the supports are designed for thinner tires, and my bike doesn't have obvious places to attach the support struts.

The fenders do cover the tires with clearance, and I can attach them to the frame and kickstand thingie (in back) and the fork (in front) without interfering with the tires or brakes. (or at least, I will once I figure out what size bolts to use.)

But that doesn't look secure enough to support the entire fenders while riding. It looks like I'm going to need to build new supports. Also, I'll need to figure out how to attach them to the fork/frame near the wheel hubs.

Is this a problem someone else has solved?
Are there standard sizes for bolts for fenders?

In your collective wisdom, are there other difficulties waiting for me in the process?
