Freddy Fender Mod For Track Bike

Hi folks
I posted some pics of my modded Freddy Fender Clip Ons. Thought some of you SS commuter folks might like to check em out to get ideas on mounting fenders.

cool...I've always thought fenders look best on stripped down and simplified fixies and singlespeeds.

Very nice. I'm going to show my brother-in-law some of your projects you did to keep your 2 year-old out of trouble. He has an especially rambunctious toddler, and he seems to be fascinated with the same things your's is. The plexi T.V. guard would be especially nice.

Nice. I just bought a pair of SKS Raceblades for my Rush Hour. They work great, but the instructions said to bend the metal stays to correct the fit, and I ended up ruining the front fender trying to make it fit. The really bad part is that I had both fenders fitting correctly by moving the plastic connector on the fender itself, and had I not listened to the instructions I'd have no problems. At least the rear fender is fine, and I'm going to see if I can order a replacement bracket for the front from the LBS.

Oh well, that's what I get for reading instructions.

mihlbach - Really? I always thought the fenders countered the stripped down look. Thats why I made mine easy to take off

Mchaz - Great! I hope your brother-in-law finds something useful in there.

eaglevii - Sorry to hear that about bending the bracket. I had thought of getting those same fenders at first, but then opted for the clip-ons thinking it would be easier to install. I was wrong ofcourse. Anyway, i hope you get your replacement bracket without fuss.

Now I'm considering making my own simple 'easy off' rack. I'm sick of having a sweaty back from my bag.

I'm getting married soon and we've been talking about kids a lot. Now I think I'll wait a few more years.
