So far so good...

First order from Alibaba, fast shipping, great tracking and follow ups.
Was initially a little nervous to share my credit card...

Quality is better than I expected it to be for $100 plus shipping.
Was debating for a while since it has some elements of the Centrimaster, but at least it's not a 1:1 knock off.

Now let's just hope FedEx won't hit me with one of their infamous broker/custom charges.

I have ordered from them and aliexpress A LOT and have always had great service. I don't always get bike stuff, but the bike stuff (especially the clothing) has been really good. I order a lot of stuff for my classroom and have had great success with that.

Planet Bike Cascadia full coverage 29er fenders. They'll be used on my Fargo for winter commuting. I had regular sized road fenders, but have switched to Schwalbe Big Apple tires and need something that fits them.

The 35mm tires were fine during summer riding, but now we're at the point where almost all my time on this bike is dark and rainy. Portland roads aren't great, there are currently leaves all over the place, including piles of them hiding small branches in bike lanes, and we'll be getting spotty patches of ice. Balloon tires at 35 psi takes away all concerns.

Potholes? Bring 'em on!
Curbs? Who cares!
Terriers? Didn't even notice!
