leave the fender off, then put a SOOOOPER low drop seat on it... maybe also run a spiked ice racing tire...

no fenders here



but then again I've kinda bub'd this the ass grinder

I dont think I'll ever put a fender on this bike, but I do want to make something to keep all the road shit off the rest of the bike.

I was fenderless for almost a year also, theres a law here in MD., but I've never had it enforced on me. I dig the look, but once in a while I get caught in the rain. Getting wet happens, but the road grime sucks ass when it's wet out

really though how much worse can it be to not have a rear fender? Not having a front fender is a bitch when it rains or when its even just wet.. I still dont see too many front fenders being run around here...

I dont care about getting dirty or wet.. its the fucking stream of water coming up from my front wheel that likes to smack me right between the eyes that bugs me. That and the fact that when its raining the only thing my headlight shows me is the fucking water stream going straight up from my wheel.

you should consider some small rear fender, the front fender you dont need unless it rains or you go over puddles o other crappy muck. In the rain you get used to riding with your head to the right side to avoid the trail of road spew heading for your face.

i've been rockin mine for about 1300 miles so far. its not so bad, even popped a couple wheelies.
i did get stuck in the rain and it was the worst 10 blocks of my life. twin rooster tails, check blind spot and both ears fill with water(and dirt). you stop and all of the sudden so does the rain, then you take off again and its like a monsoon started up....

I had a shorty on my bike and even tiny puddles give you a skunk stripe. I ended up putting a long one on there just cause I didn't like the way the shorty looked.

second the front fender motion.
i have run no fenders before and never had any problems but it rains about 10 times a year here. i was more worried about sliding off the back of the seat on a wheelie or something.

I ran my first bike without a rear fender. Needless to say the second time around I wasn't so stupid. Al tho I still don't have a front one either. Rain sucks but I cant come to terms with a front fender. No back fender kicks up every little bit of gross from the road right up your back and you have a nice stripe like a skunk. Id go with one. Cheap Easy and it could save your life, or man hood at least.

I am running with fenders in winter and without during summer, or with just a rear fender on tours, to keep the luggage away from the rear wheel



Anyway: mud-resistance is asked during rain....
