Bicycle fenders — they’re not sexy. But when it’s comin’ down, they’re just plain awesome. With bike fenders, your shoes aren’t instantly filled with water at the first puddle you cross. You’re no longer ingesting front tire spray and your backside and saddle aren’t splattered by back tire muck. And if you’re on a group ride, you’re suddenly a very popular wheel to follow since you’re not pelting the poor guy behind with splashback.
