a vote for fenders…

A Public Service Announcement

People often only think of fenders as a way to prevent the ol’ skunk stripe of water & muck off their backs. However, the biggest benefactor of full fender goodness is the bicycle itself. Full fenders prevent water & such from getting thown up inside the frame through the headset & seat tube & bottom bracket. Once inside, corrosion then can quickly take place. I replaced two bottom brackets the other day. Here’s what I found inside.

  1. What’s the price for a pair of fenders?

  2. a set of full fenders start out at $30…a modest investment for a wealth of protection…!

  3. Sweet. Are you open on New Year’s day? I might swing by and pick up a set.
