scratching the bike isn't of concern to me. My commuter is my beater bike, I don't care about the paint and I don't think I could scratch it bad enough to invite it to rust.

maybe I should just dunk the sucker in the pool when I get home, then wipe it down. I'm sure the apt management would be ok with that.

I guess I need to wash the bike really good, all this dirt and black gunk couldn't be just from 4 miles of roadway. Would fenders help? Anyone have any idea how to mount fenders on a suspension fork with no eyelets for fenders?
