Well, mostly because it’s just so cool.
Wood is strong, lightweight, flexible and looks great…all of the qualities you want in a bike. And wood is the original "organic" carbon fiber!
Sykes Wood Fenders are tough.
These fenders are laminated then coated with multiple layers of marine varnish. All the metal parts are either stainless steel or aluminum. Even though they are just a thin whisper of wood, they are sturdy enough to be used as a platform for lights or other accessories.
Will they fit my bike?
Contact us to learn about how wood fenders will fit your bike, and information about fastening them.
In the interest of weight, many bikes are made without screw holes to attach fenders or other accessories. Sykes Wooden Eyelets (available separately- $15/pair) strap to your forks or frame with plastic zip-ties.
A sticky rubber concave edge grips the tubing. The larger, aluminum lined hole accepts a 5mm machine screw. Please contact us if you need the wooden eyelets for attaching your fenders.
Brackets and struts are included, and black flair-style plastic tail flaps (mud flaps) are integral to the design of the fenders.
The tail flaps are removable and replaceable.
