General Product Review:


From the start I knew that the Fenderbag could easily be integrated into my riding because it solves the girls bike clothes never have enough pockets issue.  I prefer not to wear a backpack and the Fenderbag’s storage is more than big enough for me to fit my phone, tools, and snacks. I even fit a light windbreaker in it.  The length of the actual fender is perfect for keeping me clean, but I had issues with the fender rubbing against my rear tire. The distance from the bottom of my dropper post to top of my tire isn’t quite tall enough and while going over drops the Fenderbag tends to bottom out.

Tell Us About:

How did it fit on your bike?
Fit nicely on my frame, but the fender rubbed my rear wheel.

How hard was it to setup?

Not hard at all! All you do is attach a sticky protective patch to your post and attach to velcro straps.

Did it bottom out or interfere with your riding at all?
Yes, I ride a size small so the geometry may be too compact.  If I stuffed the bag this also activated the problem because it weighed the fender down which made it sit lower.  If you do not have a dropper post and could place the fender higher on the seat post I don’t think there would be any issue with rubbing


How easy was it to get stuff in and out?
I was able to access everything inside of the bag easily and since the zipper is placed on top of the bag everything stays inside while rummaging around.

Any ideas for improving it?
The fender may need some sort of reinforcement or more structure to help the fender sit higher and to prevent bottoming out.

What should our next model be for?
Hardtail MTB's - The bottoming out shouldn't be as big of an issue.  With some slight modifications to the fender for reinforcement I think the Fenderbag would be a great product for a hardtail!
