Fixed Gear fender problem
Living in portland It rains pretty much year round and as such I'm VERY used to being wet and have never even considered fenders, but over the past year my bike became my primary mode of transportation. Up to now the rain/wet conditions havn't really bothered me as its generaly warm enough for it not to be a problem. Well its starting to get real cold and real wet around here and I went and fished a pair of fenders out of my garage. Now the problem, I don't run a rear brake so after installing my front fender I ran into the problem of not having a bolt to attach the fender to. I have one other fender that just clips to the seatpost but Sheldon brown's website says they don't do enough to be worth it. So is there another bolt I could put through there or is my best option just gonna be to fill up the bolt on a rear brake with spacers.
Any ideas/Advice greatly appreciated, my ass is wet and its uncomfortable.
