Checkmark: one bike project

Finally added fenders to my commuter bike tonight…I’ve only had the fenders for several months, and haven’t yet ridden the bike this year, and now that the rain is few and far between and the days are longer, why not attach fenders to the bike?

Unfortunately, thanks to no instructions whatsoever I had to looking online to see how the hell they should be fitted. These are SKS mudguards, but they’re also sold under the Raleigh name, and since they’re made in Germany it’s surprising they aren’t supplied with any instructions whatsoever.

I had to look online for some help, and found this site: http://www.techne.net/bikes/fender-how-to.php

One thing to add is a mud flap to keep every drop of water from coming off the front fender: http://www.phred.org/~alex/bikes/fendermudflap.html
