I'm digging all these fendered bike pics. I bought a set of Chromoplastics for my Dawes Galaxy, but I'm procrastinating on the install, waiting to see if I can sort out my Robin Hood Lenton Sports since it has a nice set of English steel fenders.
But I'll be joining the club one way or the other.

Thought the black fenders fit the vibe of the bike well.

Any polythene bottle/container - make a pattern, find a suitably curved surface and cut it out with snips; see the white flap on the Claud Butler, above.

Thanks! Those are Honjo 35mm fenders. The tires are 700x23. The fenders won't fit over anything bigger than a 25mm tire.

Schwinn Continental with fenders

The fender installation was just completed. I only took it for a short shakedown spin. So far, so good. These are Velo Orange Stainless steel fenders. I am not counting grams on this bike. (shhh. I am really not counting pounds). So a frame made to last, should go fittingly with fenders made to last.

Brooks saddle, hammered Handsome fenders, with all of the original Suntour Cyclone drive train. I replaced the tires with 27 x 1 Panaracer Paselas to fit the fenders. Still doing some fine tuning.....especially "le derriere" to its first exposure to a Brooks.

I nearly fell out of my chair when I started researching the price of a new titanium adventure/gravel bike so.....

I put some fenders on my old ti Serotta and I love it!

Now I just need a small handlebar bag and I will have saved myself several thousands of dollar-ee-doos

You have an enviable collection of bikes @JaccoW . I am mesmerized by the Koga-Miyata gravel/camper/bikepacker. There is a lot going on there. Three water bottles. That would have to be a custom frame bag. Did you make it? It even fits around the frame pump! I don't recognize the saddle. It looks leather. And I see that you have a shifter on your seat tube? Was that for a bottom bracket generator? Or is the brifter an issue with a what looks like a big change from your small to big chainring?

I am liking this whole fender thread. I just put a pair of Planet Bike Cascadia fenders on the Lampert and took it out for a ride.



The fenders went on easily enough. I took an unusual (for me) short cut with the chainstay bridge mount and just used a zip tie since there is no hole in the bridge tube. It seems to work just fine and contour of the fender centers the fender between the chainstays. The ride didn't go as well. I still have some minor issues to work out. Fenders were good, the rear axle was the problem. The threads are not doing well.

Originally I thought that it would be good to put some vintage Bluemels on this old English frame. I had a pair somewhere, but after a few moves, they may be gone. The new Bluemels by SKS, don't seen the same as the old ones from the pictures that I see. They may actually be better, I don't know. To me, the Planet Bike Cascadia seem similar to the old Bluemel design. My Schwinn Traveler has a pair of Cascadia fenders and they have been doing well. So, this and the fact that they are fairly light weight, quiet and installation went well last time, led me to get these fenders for this bike.

Thanks Velo Mule, Yeah it's a lot but I kind of like the chaos of it. Originally it was a Koga-Miyata Traveller, a touring bike that was the same frame as the mid 90's Koga-Miyata Randonneur. Which in turn was the Dutch market version of the Miyata 1000 in the years before but with a couple of extra braze ons.

The frame bag is a custom design I cooked up together with Tim Tas & Rek here in the Netherlands. It has a small pocket in the bottom for bits and pieces and has straps on the inside to put tent poles inside of the bag, away from the tent itself. One of the advantages of a big frame (66cm / 26 inches) like this you have a lot of room in the main triangle. My napkin calculations estimate that to be a 5L frame bag and yes, I wanted it to fit around the frame pump.
The saddle is a Lepper Tourer, an old Dutch saddle company that unfortunately folded during Covid but their saddles are nicer than modern Brooks IMHO (thicker leather) and they can be had for under €40 here.
The shifter is indeed for a bottom bracket generator. I am contemplating building a dynamo wheel for my tour this summer but we'll see how it goes. The current wheels have proven to be rock solid so far.
No brifters on this bike, just bar-ends. I like these modern indexed/friction shifters and even friction works really well on 11-speed drivetrains. The 48T/28T chainring is a fairly big drop but modern 11-speed front derailleurs work really well with the unpinned/ramped chainrings.

If you want to know more, I linked the build threads and my thought process of each of these bike under each picture.

I’m pretty sure this bike is already posted somewhere else, but here’s another photo.


198x Peugeot PVN-10 at old mill mid b300 ride.

Fenders + 650b + few modern touches made this old 28” frame a very comfy randonneur bike.

Admittedly my wrenching skills are abysmal, but I feel installing the Honjo Flats (45mmwide) was one of the hardest things I've done on my bike to date. Glad to be done with them, and quite satisfied with the results despite crushing the front fend a little more than warranted.

The bike is my son's Schwinn World Sport (1985 vintage if I remember well). He moved on to a new bike and I decided to keep this one for myself after my own bike was stolen. Fenders were a must but I wanted something different than the SKS fenders I had on my previous bike, and much as I like the classy look of the hammered fenders I wanted something a little sportier and so I settled for the Honjo Flats. Due to their flatter profile, they are a bit of a pain to re-radius, so this is the best I could do with fender line.





Clearances were tight, so I had to switch from 700-32 to 28mm. It was a bummer, but had to be done (this was even after switching from the original 27" wheels). To try to maximize space under the fender as much as possible I enlisted the help of a colleague who has a pop-rivet gun and we used that to secure the L-bracket on the rear fender, gaining me an extra few mm on the underside.

After this challenge, I'm think the Arlequin wrap on the handlebars will be a walk in the park

This is a Schwinn World @Froyd Stellar ??? After having one, I think that the frame is excellent for what it is. The components tend to be lower end. In your case they are all gone including the headset. Nice bike! And the fenders look great.

Beautiful treatment! Nice to see someone take a "lowly" Varsinental and give it some respect. Gawd knows they seem to get trashed alot around here.
