Got this low mileage Pocket Llama. Regreased and adjusted hubs, waxed the chain and tweaked it to my liking.
I really like how it feels like a full size bike but handles super quick. Looking forward to more miles when winter leaves us.

Anyone have a suggestion for some inexpensive fenders.

Thanks

If you're handy Dutch Bike Bits has fenders for small tires and stays and mounts, but will require some fabrication (pop rivets or bolts or whatever).

How is that back rack working for you? Does it sway fore and aft? Does it stop the seat from going all the way down?

The seat folds forward to fold rather than dropping down so seat height doesn't need to be reset. I put planet bike fenders on my Nwt and it worked pretty well. If you post on the BF Facebook group you'll get lots of pics from folks showing their various fender options. Nice bike, enjoy!

Have not tried the rack loaded. One thing I’ve noticed is this rack is not quite far enough back for the bags to clear my heels.

The seat folks forward and should clear the rack without issue.

thanks for the fender info.

This is the rear rack I installed on my NWT bike friday. It fits more rearward and is height ajustable.

you ll need longer stays to attach it such as those in your pictures.

Any idea where that front rack came from? I can't quite make out from the photos how it's attached.

It looks like a sunlite model I used to have.
