The Soda Pop fenders seem OK, although I just installed them and don't know how they will hold up with use. There are 2 problems in trying to install the fenders on a Pace 350 eBike. #1) the bolt provided to attach the front fender is too short (only 43 mm) to pass all the way through the steering column. I had to go to a hardware store and purchase a M6 bolt 60 mm in length (actually, 65 mm would be better). At 60 mm there is just enough purchase to use the included nut; you would need 65 mm length to use the fitted spacer described in the instructions. #2) The hole bored in the bike frame to secure the rear fender is too narrow to accommodate the M6-30 mm included bolt. I purchased an M5-30 mm bolt which was snug in the drilled receiving hole, but could be secured in place using a socket wrench, with appropriate nut, of course. Two trips to the hardware store, but mission accomplished.
While these fenders aren’t made by Aventon, they are perfect for a Pace. Ultra light with nothing protruding (fender stay braces) that can get caught on twigs, branches, etc. I read Aventon’s instructions carefully, went to the hardware store and picked up the M6 - 60 bolt they mentioned, came home and had them installed in less than 10 minutes. Great choice. Excellent value IMO.
Putting together the bike is not for the faint of heart. We ended up taking the bike to our local bike shop. They determined that the rear wheel was bent. We've been trying to get it replaced for two weeks and have been told twice that is was shipping the next day. Still no tracking number... Very frustrating!
Bolt not long enough to go through head stem for front fender
