    Free Freight Fatty Fenders

    PDW has new fatty-specific "mud shovel" fenders, and since they've been closed this week, they are shipping for free. They are shipping again on Monday 9/24, so deal will be done by then. Fenders | Portland Design Works

    I have these, and they are awesome. Really neat packaging strategy and assembling the fenders is pretty simple. They fit really well and while I haven't yet tested them, I think they'll work great this winter.

    My ideal are mudguards/fenders like the old Indian motorbike. Keep completely dry.

    I purchased a pair of PDWs recently, for an alternative for my DIY full coverage fenders. The main reason for this is that the PDWs are quick to install and remove. The rear PDW doesn't work with the Revolution Rack though.

    Well it wasn't as muddy out as I'd hoped but it started raining 5 miles from home so they got a small test. Seemed to do a far better job than the narrow crud catcher that hey replaced. I'll leave the jury out until we've had some proper mud.

    Nice. How are the rears mounted, via a strap like the SKS Grand M.O.M.?

    woke to rain and gales today and 12hrs later its getting worse!

    as luck would have it, my PDW fatbike fenders arrived today from charlie the bike monger.....though im staying indoors for now as its far too wild!

    home | Portland Design Works

    charlie bikemonger bike shop single speed fixed wheel bicycles

    front sells at 10 and rear is 16, amazingly simple idea and amazing value for something thats very effective.

    basically they are a flat pack design, that are quick release, and both use pop studs for added ease of use and are designed extra wide for the larger diameter tires including the BFLs.



    assembled and fitted in under 5 minutes each!



    quick release, pops open rubber lock...







    BFL is well covered



    as is front tire



    simple pull through and lock rubbers







    the front looks huge at first, but clears the fork and feet dont obstruct on the 20'' moony, no idea if small frames will have any issues.

    I think CycleWorks? on 27th carries these as I was looking at them or something similar to them last month. Almost picked them up but didn't as I needed other stuff at the time. Another thing to add to the endless wish list. Hmmm...b-day is coming up and then there's Christmas...
