    Thanks for sharing that, its a great idea. I need to make something like this to protect the front shock absorber on my Whyte PRST-1 mountain bike.

    This bike does not have standard suspension forks. Rather than try to explain in words I have attached a photo. As you can see the design doesn't allow for standard mudguards to fit so I current use a piece of plastic drink bottle under the shock.

    Thanks ttakata73, it rides even better than it looks. It was designed by John Whyte, former F1 suspension designer who designed Marin full suspension bikes before launching his own bikes. He also designed the Mezzo folding bike. This is the PRSt-1 in the full.

    it's not a Brompton so what is it?

    The bike looks a bit as a Brompton, but it isn't. So I'm curious to know what kind of a bike it is. And how is it to ride?

    @cpg: Oh I`m so sorry, I didn`t notice you had write your bike brand/type I should know there are something `special` about it. hope you make a custom fender well. I know PRSt-1 for long time, I just dont remember the name. wish I have the bike too, so I can go all out customizing and make sure everyone envy

    @darukhan & ttakata73 & dynarider: thanks, I have try many times with different type and material.

    @brommie: it is doppelganger M series, it cost about 15.400 yen, from amazon Jp. but I have modified a little bit. it rides normal, compare to my rigid mtb and my citybike i haven`t ride other foldingbike to give a proper comparison

    btw here is the website http://www.doppelganger.jp/m6/




    and here the material attached
