I'm looking for some replacement fender options for my Superdelite (Fox fork) and wanted to ask if any of you have swapped out the full coverage fenders to a MTB style fender? Any pics and recommendations would be great.

I have a 1UP USA rack, and would like to have some fender coverage, but also something that is compatible with my rack.

I had a pair of SKS Raceblades on my 2018 Delite Mountain. They went on and off in about two minutes and did an okay job, not as good as close fitting longer fenders but those had to have both wheels removed to put them on and off.

Sure hope you get the items affected by shipping are corrected to your satisfaction. Regarding the fenders if the change is strictly for the 1Up rack there is an easy fix by lowering the tire contact bar. We carry our Nevo (43cm frame) and SD (51cm), both with standard fenders, on a dual 1Up that has the fat tire spacer kit.

Do you need the fat tire spacers to get around the fender supports? I see they have fender pads, but didn’t think my rack would clear the supports.

Bruce,
This was a morning project I didn't anticipate. Ordered the rack with the spacers prior to getting our R&M's so had to set it all up for the photo. A few things I would recommend:

If you don't need the fat tire spacers stick with the stock spacers as you want to limit the sideways movement of the tires.
Wish I would have ordered the single rack with the second rack as an installable option.
Considering the optional ramp as the SD is a load to lift over the outer rack and position between the supports.

To be honest most of the time now I just load the two in the pickup and cinch down the bikes like you would a motorcycle compressing the forks.
Good luck,
Tom

I ran up to my LBS and they got the rear one removed so I’m good to go with my rack as-is.

The guy asked me where I got it and I told him from a dealer in California since there isn’t one in KC. He said that R&M was just in from Germany and they’re signing up so that was great news as I’ll have a dealer just a few miles from home.

Have you checked out the Mudhugger fenders? They work pretty well for our wet winter eMTB riding, could be worth a gander!
