    My first moist commute.

    Well it wasn't raining but it has been for 2 days now and rained overnite so the roads were pretty wet. With my goal to put more miles on my bikes then my car this year all of the driving I have been doing due to the rain and snow has me itching to get on my bike so I did it today even with rain in the forecast and wet rodes. It went pretty smooth and all in all I think traffic was safer due to the slight fog and wet roads, cars seemed to pass slower than normal and give more room. When I got to work a co worker that had apparently passed me on his drive in came up and commented that he saw my blinky and was aware I was there so I feel encouraged there. Fenders are for sure going on my commuter now.

    Fenders are not optional equipment on a commuter. You will love them after your first wet ride with them on. Huge difference.

    Cheers,

    Even a racing bike can take some sort of fender (with modification or extra bracket). Go for it. Also you may need some sorf of waterproofing for shoes, and pack.
