    Default Carbon fenders/wings stateside

    So after my Birkin has broken it's fender stays for the 4th time, I'm looking for a lighter replacement. I know in the UK, kitcardirect has some pretty attractively priced options, but shipping alone is $240 USD, which sinks the value equation quite a bit. Anything similar available stateside?

    Over what time period have they broken?
    Check with BirkinDirect as they may have other ideas. IIRC the last one I heard of breaking turned out to be sequelae of a dying wheel bearing

    4 times in 8 months over 1200 miles. My stays had been modified by the PO for wider tires, but they've failed at where the welded bung attaches at the top side once on each side, then once on the straight section on the bottom, and today the brace that keeps them from flopping downward failed. My under fender brace/mounts seem especially burly and I'm not sure if they're original. I'll take pics and post them later one.
