    Fenders

    Instead of murderous thread drift else where, here be a thread dedicated to your Fat fenders.

    Today I tried an experiment and used a crud catcher on the seat tube of my Pugs, I made a cut on the top(widest end) to allow for the front derailleur stop to clear and a bit off the bottom for the E bracket and voila. A reasonable fender extension to keep my lower legs from being "painted". Will post after pictures later.

    Here is a before, you will note my rear is a combo of rack and plastic fenders lent from a set of clamp on's.

    I was able to get the CC's on chainlove for $2 each.

    I was doing that for a while. The Crud Catcher is nice and easy to fit. I then got out my heat gun and made up a cruder but wider version using some rain guttering.





    You can see by the mud pattern on my bike it makes a big difference.

    TY Trials but they do need a bit of modifying to fit. A heat gun helps.

    Neat idea, but expensive. I'd cut back the lower edge of the front for serious off road use.

    Lebatt Blue Light... <img src="https://www.skypeicons.com/images/s/icon-puke.gif">

    Funny idea though

    I just actually took a big ziploc container yesterday and cut it to fit behind my seattube to keep the BB more clean. Actually worked pretty good.

    The design goals: maximum mud clearance, easily installed and removed, easy to replace if damaged, low cost. I made spines and stays from aluminum bar stock, and fender panels from corrugated vinyl (used in making signs). The panel edges are wrapped with packing tape to keep mud out of the gaps.

    The front fender is removed by taking out the pin at the fork crown and the screws at the ends of the stays (the front wheel needs to come off also). Removing the rear requires unscrewing the wing-nut at the seat-stay bridge, bolts at the stays, cutting the zip tie at the end of the spine (near the front der.), and then pulling out the corrugated panels.
    Panels can be replaced easily as I have templates for all of the panels.
    Total cost ~30$ (mostly for paint).

    Let's see, trying to upload a couple of pictures of my DIY fenders. Just took them of the plug and checking they fit before finishing (a bit soft still so takes a while). Weight 125-130g each thou got to paint them too. They are woven 600gms basalt with epoxy, diagonally cut and stretched so the fibers are about 30/30 deg. Waiting to see are they stiff enough to be alone..

    Well, this is the one I run, works great.

    If you want to mount it on the fork though, you'll find that a star nut pressed into the bottom end of the steerer makes a great mounting point. Beyond that, you're on your own

    Finished, after cured, painted with 2part Urethane paint (left over boat paint) and in place. The paint was a bit thick but didn't have the right thinner for it so it was a heavy coat so the weight came up to 170g each. Waiting a good test thou..

    thecanoe posted a pic of fenders like ones from Ty Trials that velobike linked to. Is that where they came from?

    I have been using the PDW Dave's Mud Shovel. They work really well.


    I didn't need them all winter, but the past 3 weeks of spring I've needed them just to avoid getting covered in mud on the short trip to and from the trailhead.

    Mud Shovels to Coroplast to...

    I was running Mud Shovels and liked them except for the limited coverage and the fact that my seat bag pushed the rear Mud Shovel around, tearing the fender plastic at the fold.


    I started out by putting coroplast under my Orange Velo porteur rack and carrying it back under the fork to interface with the down tube mounted Mud Shovel.


    I did the same at the rear, only I put a piece of closed cell foam in the triangle made by the brake bridge and the seat stays to catch what went under the Mud Shovel and over my coroplast fender extension. This picture is after I ditched the Mud Shovel and put on an Old Man Mountain rear rack. I kept the existing coroplast and just added more coroplast under the brake bridge and the rack deck. If you look closely you can see a gap between the brake bridge piece and the rack deck piece that I covered with clear packing tape to keep slop from getting through the gap.


    For the next iteration of Moonie fenders, I'm ditching the coroplast entirely in place of some retro trials fenders that are in transit as I type. I'll post up when I get those on...
