    Fendered Bikes

    I know that I'm not the only cyclist riding one, so let's see 'em.

    Here's mine.
    A Boulder All-Road with Honjo hammered fenders.

    I don't think I could hang my pump here without fenders.

    Thanks.

    It's pretty amazing how much cleaner a bike stays riding in the rain with fenders. Everything still gets wet, but only the wheels and stays get mucked up.

    I'm in Fairfield County CT and they go on in November and come off shortly. SKS, not pretty but work fairly well. Clearance is super tight up front with the DT but manageable.

    When I lived in London I used full coverage Blumels, did not bring them to Shanghai which was a mistake and no need in Singapore as rain there was like water out of a fire hose.Fendered Bikes-20160315_075049-large-.jpg

    Fendered Bikes

    Well... if you're asking...



    It's a Soma Stanyan with VO fenders. I went DIY and made my own fender flaps and now I'm running it as a 1X10

    So am I but when the rain stops, I ride. Fenders come in handy when the ground is still wet.

    Two of my bikes wear them year 'round. Both shown in full commuting trim.





    Nothing fancy, retro, or decorator. Strictly utilitarian.

    I use a QR beavertail fender on my roadie. The mount is that black thing just above and behind the rear brake. No pics with it installed though.



    Although I use only the one, they're sold in a pair. Prevents skunk stripe, but not much else.

    I took the rain/winter bike out for yesterday's wet century+ group ride. The rain stopped after ~45 miles, but a few farm roads were covered in muck and a couple of the guys forgot to bring fenders or had half-ass fenders installed.

    The bike and I came home covered in muck. Still, the fenders did their job and it would have been a whole lot worse without them;

    Degreased, cleaned, lubed and prepped to head out for a short spin today;

    I'm very happy with the Bontrager NCS fenders; full coverage and infinitely adjustable.

    $430 Bikes Direct single speed, currently sitting in a downstairs hall. I destroyed the stock wheels so I bought a pair of no name track wheels from Nashbar for the princely sum of $63. SKS Chromoplastics, I had to leave some extra clearance on the rear fender so I could get the wheel out of the horizontal rear drop out. This bike is simple and absolutely bomb proof, I have done my best to kill it and failed miserably. I love it deeply.

    My Bridgestone MB-6 drop bar

    The fenders aren't fancy but they do the job.

    www.cyclofiend.com has lots of bikes with fenders. Here's one example.

    Volagi Viaje with PDW Road fenders.

    I sprayed them with some rattle can rustoleum because the original color (bluish green) didn't really look good on the natural Titanium.

    The wheels are wide profile (HED Belgium C2+) with Conti GP 4 Season 25mm clinchers. It's a pretty beefy tire for those fenders, but they do the job well.

    Even though this is my heaviest and most equipped bike (rack, fenders, lights, etc..), it's also my quietest (no creaks, rattles, pops, or clicks). Even though it's tad heavy compared to my plastic bikes, I love riding this thing. It's so smooth and graceful the way it tracks down the road.

    I guess Honjo has been working on titanium fenders. I don't know if they're on the market yet, but they'll probably be pricy. They would probably have them in different widths also, giving you better coverage if you were so inclined.
    A couple pictures off the webs. The multiple fender pic is showing, smooth titanium, hammered and smooth aluminum and hammered brass.

    I found it pretty surprising how quiet my bike is with the fenders properly mounted. I don't know what I was expecting, but whatever it was, it has been surpassed.
