    Mini Fork Fender?

    Yo,

    I want to make my own mini fatbike fender to zip-tie right beneath my rigid fork. I am looking for a template but all I can find are 29er templates. Anyone have a fatbike template?

    Looking specifically for one that only covers 4-6 inches behind the fork, not in front.

    Thanks!

    I would just buy some thick paper stock and keep cutting them until the shape is to your liking and then trace that to actual plastic sheet.
    Might take some time but won't cost much and will be how you like it.

    Based on 100mm hub fork and 150mm fat fork. I took the 29er template and folded it in half along the centerline of the bike. Traced 1/2 of it added 50mm of straight lines (perpendicular to the centerline of the bike) then traced the other 1/2 on the far end of the straight lines. You've now "widened" the original template to fit a fat bike.

    You can get fancy if you want but this gets the job done.

    I just bought a cheap plastic trash can and started cutting it bigger than it needed to be, test fit and then trimmed it till it was how I wanted. Poke some holes for zip ties and voila!

    It's about time to put the fenders back on now.
    I made one for the front downtube and the seat tube in font of the rear tire. The one on the rack is a Dave's Mud shovel. I dislike getting wet and cold.

    Oh, and you may want to rethink the part about nothing in front of the fork. With the one in my pic, I still almost run into stuff flung up from the tire with my face!

    These are mine, buy a $1 poly binder. Easy to replace and makes a front and rear set. Thin enough for large tires. Buy a $2, or $3 binder for ticker material. Dimensions might be a bit off, a few mm, depending on how well your printer is setup. Both are 600dpi for standard printer resolution.

    Mainly made these cause I find the Dave's Mud Shovels to be overkill for anything other then spring. Just need to keep mud out of my eyes, and a dry butt.

    Marsh guard. A little pricey at $15 but it does its job.
