    Full Fenders

    A couple of months ago, I put a fairing on my V-Rex and have enjoyed it alot. But now, since winter is coming and I ride all through the season to work, I need to find a full fender (not just a 3/4) for the front that will cover the wheel so it doesn't throw spray up inside of the fairing. Does anyone know which company makes one to fit my need?

    fenders

    Full fenders are more common on European bents, but as for your American-made RANS maybe one of those mail order recumbent specialty shops could help. I'm thinking of Calhoun Cycles or Hostel Shoppe. Or perhaps you could just modify your 3/4 fender yourself with some plastic and ingenuity?

    Good night and joy be with you all.

    I second Hostel Shoppe, they have a wide variety of fenders for bents.
    www.hostelshoppe.com I used an ATB spray shield that is designed to clamp to the seat post and is cocked up at an angle to intercept spray from the rear wheel. I used a large stainless steel worm clamp to clamp it to the frame of my Pursuit behind the seat and clamped the other end to the seat support. It catches all the rearwheel spray and is $10. Those tiny wheels throw an impressive rooster tail. Steve
