The Aventon Sinch Fender Set is solely for Sinch models. With a traditional step over and Step-through styles, be sure you have purchased the correct fender set to match your Sinch ebike. Purchasing a Sinch fender set will not work for a Sinch Step-through ebike, and vice versa. Follow the instructions below to install the fender set onto your Pace 350 ebike.
Before riding, check to ensure that the wheels rotate smoothly and the tires do not touch the fender or fender mounting hardware.
- Metric hex keys
- Phillips screwdriver
- Adjustable (crescent) wrench, or metric box/combination wrench
The video below walks you through how to install fenders on your Sinch ebike. We've also written a step-by-step below.
- The Sinch fenders only come in one size and must match your ebike frame: a Sinch Step-through fender set will not work for a Sinch ebike, and vice versa.
- Unpack the fenders and mounting hardware.
- Apply a dab of thread adhesive (i.e. blue loctite) to each fixing bolt as well as a light grease, like white lithium grease.
- Each fender is specific to the front or rear of the bike. The shorter of the two is for the front of the bike.
- Start by securing the front fender to the suspension fork using the bolt and washer. The bolt threads into the back of the arch on the suspension fork.
- Next attach the L-brackets to the two mounting points on the fork’s lower casting.
- Then bolt the fender strut to the newly-installed L-bracket on either side.
- Now that the front fender is attached, the fit of the fender can be adjusted in several spots if needed. First, the length of each fender strut can be changed. Turn this knurled nut to loosen, slide the strut fore or aft, then re-tighten the knurled nut to lock the strut in place. Second, the height of the fender can be changed by sliding the fender up or down on the slot behind the fork arch. Finally, the fender can be moved left/right on the mounting struts with two Phillips screws. Loosen the Phillips screws, slide the fender left/right as needed, then re-tighten.
- The rear fender attaches to the bike in 3 places, first, to the mounting points at the rear dropout, second, at the plate behind the bottom bracket, and third, at the seatstay bridge.
- Remove the rear wheel from the bike so you can access the mounting points.
- Attach the rear fender to the mounting plate behind the bottom bracket using the Phillips screw.
- Attach the rear fender to the threaded hole in the seatstay bridge using the hex bolt.
- Attach the rear fender struts to each side of the dropout using a hex bolt on each side.
- After installation, check for proper installation and operation. Cycle the suspension fork to ensure that the fender doesn’t rub at any point during the travel of the suspension fork.
