    Show me your full fenders.

    I recently installed full fenders on my Kilo WT, making 7 of 17 bikes in the stable fully fendered. The Kilo WT is the first time I've put fenders on a bike with track ends, although I've used them previously on SSFG conversions of road bikes with horizontal dropouts. There is sufficient clearance at the rear to remove the wheel w/o deflating the tire. The fenders on six of the bikes are plastic ESGE / SKS, which are very durable and lightweight. IME fenders keep the bike clean even in dry weather.

    Oooooh me, me, me, me. I've got full fenders.

    No pictures of it though...I might as well take a several before it gets too dark.

    Thanks. The other 10 are for the most part unfenderable, mostly due to lack of clearance or mounting points.

    Sorry to hear about your wreck, hope you're ok. I can see the benefit of a mudflap in the front, but how does it help in the rear?

    You sure must have quite the garage to store all those bikes and parts

    donglecorn - glad to hear you are ok. is you're bike fine as well?

    I need to get an extra set for the other Surly. I agree, SKS are where it's at! If they were just a lil longer, they'd be perfect, but adding the mudflap helped make it complete

    Try to get a pic of my Soho S + VO Hammered up soon...

    I presume you don't need pics of my Madsen or my wife's Taga as they came fully fendered...

    PS - 17 bikes in the stable? Wow...

    Quite the contrary, I'd love to see any fully fendered bike. You'll note that my Schwinn Speedster (last photo) came with chrome steel fenders. Everything metal on that bike is steel, and it weighs 46 lbs as shown.

    I've been very pleased with it so far, although I've yet to take any nonstop rides over 5 miles on it. A saddle is good if you don't notice it when riding, which is the case with this saddle, and I've ridden with both boxers and briefs, cargo shorts and regular jeans with no discomfort. I definitely have no plans to change it.

    Braze ons / tapped holes are nice but not necessary to mount fenders, as you can use P-clips.

    Very nice. Is your fender attached to the seat tube as well? I assume it is but can't really tell from the pic.

    thx
    i think so.... handle bars fell off later in the day (oops, musta gotten loose)

    chain has gotten kinda noisy all the sudden too (i should check the spokes)

    back to fenders:
    i really dig riding my bike without them, feels so much better... but man so much drier on the feet/legs (even tho i have waterproof gear head/toe)

    the IRO mark V is drilled for rear brakes, so it attaches just like regular fenders thru the brake mount

    I think it's nice to have some battle scars on a bike.

    They're all just cosmetic damage though right? Nothing serious?


    I love my fenders, they keep me nice and dry.

    Nice, you've defied the laws of physics, you need to celebrate this feat.

    I hope nothing is actually wrong with your bike. If something is seriously wrong though, I think you can warranty your frame with Tony at IRO and get a new one half off? Maybe? Probably not..
