I hate fenders...butt i'm tired of a wet one.

Looked at some really expensive plastic. This one was $5.99.
I really don't feel like paying $40 something for some graphics on my plastic.

Any recommends on nice fenders?

It's raining mad cats 'n dogs..oh well I'm glad it's on.
I'm off to play in the mud. I'm going to get soaked anyway...

Fenders...?

It's the fork the builder put on the frame.

No coke bottles or graphics that make plastic look like CF please..

Made by Trace.
Got it @ Sportchek, maybe only Can.
Works fine, flexy plastic, bottomed it onto the tire -no chance of break.
Had a seatstay brace mount as well.

Spend the dough for planet bike fenders and stop ruining clothes with grey streaks . I personally like the way fenders look and work.
