Hey!
Looking for the title: carbon road fork with fender mounts! I've found some but they aren't exactly light haha. anyhow any suggestions would be greatly apprectiated! (also the more tire clearance the better as i plan to use this as a gravel and rain bike)

Bontrager makes one.

Also the fork that comes with the Trek Domane is probably the best road fork with fender mounts available. Depends on your head tube and may be tough to obtain. You'd also have to strip it and refinish to match.

You could also buy a Trek Cronus either the cross version, or the older road version if you can still find one. Both have great fender mount systems and IMO make excellent fender/rain/winter bikes. The road version can only handle 25 mm tires with fenders. The cross version will take more.

Ruckus did the Di2 retrofit on my R5. Top notch work and reasonable time frames for quality work, can't recommend them enough.

Check out the Kinesis DC 07. Needs long reach brakes, but that just makes sense with fenders and wider tyres.

Why not use something like the Crud fenders? Tjey sre easy to fit and stays in place. Or you can just use zip ties.

You'll either like the styling or you wont.

Kenisis also offer 2 options:

http://www.kinesisbikes.co.uk/products/forks/road/dc07


The DC21 takes normal drop brakes and full guards. A bit heavy as has alu steerer but rides well
