I live in the NW so I have fenders on 95% of all the bikes I own.

I also remove the front fender in dry weather, it takes no time at all.

When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
