But even so, I think I have a man-crush on your bike.
Thanks for the suggestions. Fortunately/unfortunately I am in the SF East Bay, and it never really rains here. I am stoked on the bike for sure and really looking forward to commuting and not driving my truck to and from work. Just seems like such a waste to not ride a bike if I have the option to. It's a sweet bike, especially with the pedals, seat and fenders the original owner added. That saddle alone goons for $100-$130 apparently. Components on the bike are pretty low end, but they seem to work great so far, and I won't replace anything unless something breaks or starts going me trouble. IF we do start getting rain here again (i wish we would), then I will for sure take your advice and look into a fender that has better coverage.
