    And usable as a BBQ afterwards, saw this in action in France and it seemed to work pretty good. Best bang for the bucks

    Another good ghetto method is to find one of those long Tupperware plastic containers or zip lock containers and cut out the bottom a fender-like shape. I actually did this for on my seat tube right at the bottom bracket and up... has been keeping the BB area much cleaner.

    I'm not entirely sure but I'm led to believe we shouldn't mention the ghetto at all here...it's disrespectful or sumthin'.

    Sorry op, but u need to rip that thing off or bike and fab something up that is a little more respectable. Plus, that would be pretty loud with mud hitting it.

    It would be one thing if u were riding a cheap walgoose, but that sandman deserves better!

    OK...

    I'll say it. An underlying point here for some of us (I hope more than just me) is that an inordinate number of our beloved Fatbikes are festooned with the most God awful looking debris control devices imaginable (I can't bring myself to call them fenders). Even a couple of the popular items available for sale, while effective, perhaps, are truly hideous. No, no one wants to stifle the inspiration behind creative endeavor, nor kick a guy who needs a solution in a pinch (like at a race or something). Yes, you can say that you don't give a rip what it looks like, and OK for you then. However, once the immediate need has passed, take a look and see if it is really something you want to expose Mother Nature and your fellow riders to. Give a thought for them, and their sensibilities. Help preserve the inherent style of Fatness, and the beauty that so many of us use our Fatties to visit.

    You may be stuck in granny, huffing and puffing along at a walking pace. Can't climb the slightest grade. But, if you have nothing else, at least you can have some style!

    For sure... when there are fenders for $18 out there... homemade ones seem silly.

    PDW Dave's mud shovel for the win (IMO). I have them both front and rear. The little ziplock ghetto fender I made for behind the BB was because I couldn't find one from a manufacturer.

    I don't think the OP is from the States (no direct access to fancy "pretty" fat fenders), they were just working with what they had, maybe you find it ugly maybe you don't. In the end its not your bike so don't worry about it.

    I myself modified the pdw front fender to mount lower towards my Bob and crank area. I find it helps keep a lot of junk off the drive train. The only thing I don't like about it is that when u crash it usually gets all twisted up.

    Why would anyone do this?

    Mud is cool, and fenders are cheap - plus that BBQ pan is clean, something is wrong with that picture...

    This is how a dirty bike with fenders looks: (and yes it was a sanctioned race, I wasn't recklessly mucking the trails)

    But they lost, so you need to upgrade it to finest British cast iron.

    There are a few companies offering coloured spokes in a variety of colours. Sure, they cost a bit more than regular spokes, but I think they make a person 10% faster on the climbs.
