Like a couple others have stated here, these definitely won't fit 38c or even 35c tires. I bought these for my 32c Schwalbe marathons. Fit perfectly for these. When I go over potholes, the rear mudguard still touches the tire a little and make a little noise, not a huge problem. The positive is there are multiple different fitting options provide in the package to enable fitting to different types of frames. You may not use some nuts and bolts provide depending upon your frame type. But good to have been given options. But at the end you still need to employ some jugaad to make it all work as everything is not made equal. For me the front mudguard bolt was not of sufficient length and bolt interface of my fork was tapered. Got a long bolt from a hardware store to fix the length problem but the fit is a little tapered. So don't expect this to fit as expected. You will need to put in some work to make these fit your bike. But again the best part is there are plenty of fitting configuration options provided in the form of additional nuts and bolts and other bits and pieces.
I have gone through the full details. I came to know these fenders are from very good reputed German company and familiar for making quality products. Actually I am looking fenders for 29" size 32mm width tyre Trek bike FX3 Hybrid bike. After going through the details came to know these fenders are suitable for 27". Please suggest the suitable fenders for Trek FX3 Large size bike
I had ordered the item for my Triban RC500. The rear fender fits perfectly. The front fender needed some modifications as the bolt provided for the fork was a bit short. Got a longer 3 inch M5 bolt from the local market and was able to fix it subsequently. Product quality is great and the does not have any play after fitting. Tyre clearances are good too.
Needed for the mud and rain. Does the job. Was a bit of a squeeze at the seat stay with tiny rim brakes - had to skip the bracket and use some cable ties. Front one fit fine.
I am thankful to team BOTS, for making me available such a wonderful fender for my GIANT ESCAPE I.
