Show us your bike with fenders!

With winter coming on, which is the rainy season in this part of the country, I decided to hang some fenders on the Frankenbike. It turned out to be a three hour job, but after a 30 mile ride test yesterday they work nicely. Let's see some pictures of your bike with fenders! Here's mine:

Trek 720 w/ fenders on 27" wheels.

A bit of a challenge to get a pretty, uniform fender line as there's not a lot of room under the fork crown and the brake bridge.

I've been installing & reinstalling fenders on my bikes now that the rains have arrived. I don't have them all photographed, but here are a few.

1985 Sekai Bigfoot with Planet Bike ATB clip on fenders.
1974-'75 Motobecane Grand Jubile with VO hammered aluminum fenders.
1992 Specialized Hardrock Ultra with Apex mountain bike fenders (the Seattle company is out of business). I couldn't get this photo to upload with any bigger image. Sorry.

Do you have other pix out there of those bikes?

I was just noticing the sweet Suntour ATB shifters on the Moto- didn't know if they're also on the Sekai. Those are my favorite iteration of the Suntour thumbshifter.

Asking me to show my bikes with fenders is like asking me to show my shoes with laces.

Here's a set of 52mm 650B VO fenders on a frame I converted to 650B:



Another set of 52mm 650B VO fenders on my Rawland Stag 650B, except these fenders were made for 700c wheels and I reduced the arc radius to fit 650B wheels:



Here's a narrow set of VO fenders (35mm) on 25mm tires on a Raleigh Comp GS (no longer in my stable):



Bluemels Club Specials (43mm wide) on my Jack Taylor with 32mm tires:



And another set of Club Specials on my Mercian with 30mm tires:



And for bikes that aren't really designed for fenders? It's a little more challenging, but here's my Bike Friday tandem with 20" wheels and generally fender-unfriendly frame design:



Look at the long cork I had to use to properly space the fender!



And this Trek with racing geo, short reach brakes, and no fender eyelets. 35mm SKS fenders worked, but barely!



Have to get really creative when there's no chainstay bridge!

Thanks!. The clearance at the rear brake bridge was a little tight. With hindsight, aluminum fenders would have been easier to modify for a bit more room there. The SKS plastic would not tolerate being cut, I'm thinkin'. They're a really nice dark root beer brown metallic color in the direct sun, though.

@The Golden Boy - I don't have any photosharing accounts anywhere, as I don't really "share" them. Those are actually from the Sekai. I bought a VO Porteur bar in 22.2 for the Moto and use those friction shifters. I also have some Suntour Sport XC shifters, but those are too bulky for the Moto. I finally love this bar/shifter setup on the Moto.

Cheers.

I tried matching the vintages, but had to settle for a period non-correct mod!

Two bikeforums C&V all-stars, right there. (even if the first is less V, it's no less C).

Shown as purchased last month for $20, less than the cost of a set of new plastic fenders. The Sprite came with original 1970s Raleigh brand tires and smooth chrome rims, which I rode for about 20 miles. Found a hop was due to a split in the tread, so it now has high flange hubs with 700c alloy rims from a Super Grand Prix and vintage Avocet 35mm cross tires. This is my next clunker entry.

Much of the fleet is fendered, particularly the older rigs, but some of the less C&V ones for wet/muddy rides. A few in chronological order:

'51 Raleigh Lenton Sports with Bluemels All-Rounders:


'60 Ken Ryall with Bluemels Lightweights:


'70s St. Etienne 650B Porteur with Bluemels Air-Weights


'94 Bridgestone RB-T with SKS Longboards:


'04 Rivendell Romulus with Planet Bike Cascadias


'07 Ebisu with V-O Zeppelins
