So far I'm happy with these fenders. The included hardware was sufficient to get them installed on my Trek 7300. Before I purchased I talked to Planet Bike about these. The product description says fits up to 700 c x 35 tires. My tires are 700 x 38 and I also have a rear pannier rack on my back. I was assured by Planet Bike these should work and they do. Once I got them adjusted I've had no problems with rattle or rubbing.
I like the black color because it blends in well with the tires and you barely notice they are on the bike.
UPDATE: These fenders work great! I uploaded a photo in the product photo section. It shows the rainy day difference between my back, with the fender, and my wife's without it. We had already ordered her a set of these fenders too but they arrived a day too late for this trip.
For anyone wondering, these fender DO fit vintage Campy Record/Nuovo Record short reach brakes. I also found that these fenders "tune" well to address inevitable tire rub. Tighten the dropout eyelet screws and brake mount nut. Loosen the nuts which attach the fender to the wire stays and manipulate the fender away from the tire. You can increase or decrease the bow/arc of the fender. To increase the bow/arc, tighten the rear and lift the middle with your hand and tighten at the desired arc. To decrease, tighten the rear and push down on the top of the fender. A second set of hands REALLY helps.
Compared to what's out there, these are the best. Nice and light. Do not expect these things to just snap on. A fender has not yet been made that snaps into place and adjusts itself to the wide variety of tires/wheels/frames we ride.
1/27/14 UPDATE: Other reviewers have mentioned that these fenders are a bit "flimsy". This is curable and the same method works on...
Overall, these are pretty good fenders. Installation was as quick and easy as can be expected - on my particular setup (Raleigh Misceo 3.0 - hybrid with disc brakes) I didn't have to do too much MacGyvering to get them on. They just barely have clearance over my 700x38 tires, but after getting them in the sweet spot during the initial installation I've never had to adjust them. After about 1,500 miles, they're still rock solid.
I have no issues with toe clearance. They look classy too; the finish doesn't look cheap and I've had a few compliments on how they look.
I commute year round in all weather, and after putting them on I immediately noticed that I could go farther between lubes. While they do an excellent job of keeping my feet dry, somehow they still allow snow to cake up on my bottom bracket in bad weather. They also tend to squeak going over bumps, but that probably has more to do with the cramped installation on my bike than the fenders...
