    Make your own from corplast...corrugated plastic, found in art shops, Loomis kinda places. Open and straighten coat hangers for slipping into the little holes in the plastic, they can then be bent to fit anything. Imagination is the only limiter. Super light and indestructable, held on with zap straps, AND COME IN FUN COLOURS>>> The cost of a single 4x8 sheet is less then any fender you could buy and will give you enough material for five years worth of disposable fenders. I'm not making mine yet but soon come, and I will be sure to take pictures. I like to moto-style the rear one on my MTB, super fat slush deflector.

    I advocate for hot wheel track as well for the DIY. Either way an old (or new) set of fender stays makes the job easier. For Steeker, who does not have eyelets, perhaps the quick attach style may be easier. Most sets will come with vinyl coated clamps to use in lieu of eyelets.

    Sounds like fun.... snow rides are a blast. With these new tyres I feel like I could ride up the side of a building. Keith you got more of these? How long can one store tyres before they "go"?
    New tires are coated to prevent deterioration. Toss em in a garbage bag and they would last as long as you want.

    My fender design requires no eyelets, they are that light, and the internal wire helps it keep it's shape in anything other than a howling gail.

    all clip on fenders are dorky.

    here's some more ideas about DIY fenders. they are really ugly, though; don't say i didn't warn you.

    I know I shouldn't but I ride my Ciocc year round. It is powder-coated, that infamous Italian paint had flaked away, so I suppose it is somewhat safer. There really is nothing quite like riding a road bike in the winter, I love it. The thin tires slice through the snow very easily and there are no other cyclists around so you can really fly.

    I think that's a business visit, not a move. And yeah, we can definitely recommend some places to go, things to do. Do you have a more specific date range?

    Spitfire what kind of shows are you interested in? Live music? Art? Dance? Theatre? If you give us a little more to work from I'm sure we can all come up with a gazillion different things to keep you occupied.

    TRAFFIC NASTINESS WARNING
    Lake Shore and Yonge, massive lane reductions in all directions, cagers are beside themselves. Piling up in intersections all over the place, avoid at all costs if you must drive.
