(Every time I see ridiculous mudguards like on that cruiser above, I wonder what the designers think they will do. Apparently despite this sort of thing being known for centuries, some people still think that water gets flung off a spinning wheel radially. Those mudguards would have worked to some extent if that was the case. But because water gets flung off tangentially, the guards are completely worthless.)
(Oh not completely worthless: They could serve as an example of how NOT to do it. )
We got it. They don't work. Another case of style over function. So the NuVinci will be crippled by worthless mudguards?
