Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

fender-extender!!

ive been wrestling with a good fender solution for my paddy wagon for a week or so, first trying sks full coverage fenders with poor results, and then plain planet bike speed-ez. those are great but only provide coverage to the top of the tire in back. pilfering a second pair of those fenders from my girlfriends dusty bike, i installed the second small (front fender) backwards in the rear triangle to make a full coverage solution that can be installed quickly. seems pretty good in the repair stand. gonna try a commute with that set up next. will post pics.

Cool, I had to get creative with some cut up 2-liter bottles last winter to get good coverage on my winter bike. Switched from a MB to a CX bike for this winter and will do the same thing to it.
