I have a waterproof jacket, and I made some shants out of a pair of snowpants and then sprayed waterproofing stuff on them. My problem is from the calfs down. I have an old pair of adidas which I drilled some holes in... But I don't have waterproof socks. I've heard they don't stay waterproof for long.
So, I'm just wondering what people do to stay dry when it's raining (especially when it's cold) - in general, but also specifically how to keep legs dry.
Also, a question about fenders. I have one of those plastic fenders for the back, but I don't have anything up front. Whenever the streets are wet my tires throw a lot of water up at my legs. I don't bike in the rain enough to put on full fenders, I don't think, but has anyone tried one of those mud-shield fenders that hook on the bottom tube right behind the front wheel (I've seen them on mtnbikes)? Do those work at all?
Rain + Cold is the topic. Go.
