OK, it ain't steel, but it is 25 years old..... '97 Cannondale T900. The fenders were very handy dealing with all the slushy, salty snow-melt this past Sunday when temps hit 60. (pic is from back in the fall...)

My touring bikes have fenders:
1969 Dawes Galaxy


1990 Cannondale ST600

1991 Miyata Elevation 5000

One of the things I've learned is to not mount the fenders close to the tires, unless you like sitting on your butt in the rain digging gumbo out from between them with a stick.

Posted this one on the forums in other places and with different setup. This is the most current, drop bars, bottom bracket dyno and stem shifters. The fenders are Velo Orange.

Apparently fenders have become more popular in our household since my previous post.

Mrs non-fixie's Bridgestone GrandTech GR-27 (a bike that fully deserves to be mentioned by its full name):



My weight weenie Jonkers Super. 10.00 kilograms as pictured. The saddle was replaced immediately after weighing and taking this picture. The rest turned out to be pretty damn good:



Mrs non-fixie's Little Red RIH:



My Olympia Sport:



On the verge of becoming vintage, but it is steel (Columbus Thron), so I'll include it. Adding the fenders was a bit of a squeeze, but it has eyelets, so it had no choice. Van Tuyl VT550:



This has been my favorite vacation machine for quite some time now. A Roy Thame, from London:



My latest, and most blingy, addition. A Robust. It wears my most expensive fenders, and it deserves them:

Non-fixie, I'm pretty familiar with the Roy Thame story, but could you tell us a bit about the Robust? Is that '70's French?

198
Robust was founded by a Mr Robert, sometime in the 1920's in Saint-Etienne, the heart of the French bicycle industry.



The name seems to have been chosen deliberately:



In the 1950's the brand was taken over by Ets Berger, also a Saint-Etienne bicycle manufacturer. They kept the name Robust alive, and even sponsored racing activities:



In the late 1980's the story get s a little fuzzy. There was a takeover by a wood merchant, and shortly after the Berger firm ceased its activities.

Based on the decals and the BSC threading I believe my frame to be from the early eighties. I bought the frame on ebay.fr because of the looks and its rare large size. A gamble that turned out well.

The original thread on my acquisition of this frame is here.

Rebuilt this one a few weeks ago, has mudguards - do they count?




Still a few things to complete, better bar grips, toe clips, a set of Paselas to replace those nasty tanwalls with the centre ridge that make the bike feel like it's falling over when you take a corner.

That looks like fender equipped C&V to me. Nice bike!

Good question! I was out for a very sloppy ride last weekend when the temps hit 60F and the roads had a lot of snow-melt puddles, streams, etc, and I realized the need for a flap on (at least) the front wheel (the fenders kept all but my toes pretty clean and dry, but soggy toes were no fun). There was an article in a BQ fairly recently about DIYing mud flaps from 2mm rubber sheeting, carefully opening up the rolled edge of the fender to slide it in.....

I've used vinyl baseboard in the past. The right amount of rigidity, cheap, and easily cut. Plenty of examples of patterns online, such as this one. Leather works, too, but it needs to be fairly thick, much thicker than a leather jacket. A friend used the top of a leather saddle that had torn at the rivets.
