Do you have a bicycle that you’d love to add fenders to, but can’t? If so, Axiom might have a solution for you. Their nifty Axle Runner, Disc Runner, and Frame Runner mounts allow riders to add fenders to bicycle frames that don’t have integrated mounts, make it easier to fit fenders over disc brakes, and make it possible to mount front fenders to a thru-axle fork.
The Axle Runners allow riders to mount fenders on a frame without integrated eyelets. Their bodies measure 38x22mm, and are made from 2mm thick forged aluminum. They are compatible with 9mm quick-release axles and should fit most road, hybrid and MTB frames.
A pair of Axle Runners retails for $27.99 USD, and they come in Red only. Axle Runners are also included with Axiom’s line of Roadrunner fenders, which come in 26”, 29” and 700c wheel sizes.
If you’re having issues fitting narrow fender stays or carrier racks onto your disc-brake equipped bike, Axiom has you covered with their Disc Runner mounts. These forged aluminum extensions bolt to your frame eyelets, providing about 15mm of extra clearance on each side. While you could probably bend your fender stays around your brake calipers, adding Disc Runners seems like an easier and better looking way to achieve a proper fit. A pair of Disc Runners sells for $27.99, and they come in silver only.
If you don’t even have mounts to work with, you’re still not out of options! Axiom sells a few fender sets which come with their patent-pending Frame Runner mounts. The Frame Runners attach to fork legs for those running thru-axles, or seat stays if your frame lacks mounting eyelets. The mounts are fixed in place with either the supplied o-rings (ideal for on-off use) or more securely using zip ties.
The Frame Runners come on Axiom’s Rainrunner 360 FR-TREKK fenders (for 700c wheels) and the Rainrunner 360 FR-MTB26 (for 26” wheels). MSRP is $59.99 for either size. While nothing’s been promised yet, we have heard Axiom is considering selling Frame Runners separately in the future.
