Why Fender Bikes

After the snow melt, it’s back to riding rain bikes in Seattle. We’re in the rainy season from now until May and these photos show why we ride with fenders and flaps.

Pink and Fendered

Those protect you, but they’re more for the people you ride with in a group. That mud, dirt, and grime all over the bike would spray up into their faces without the flaps.

Flax and Fendered

Why do we do it? Because riding in the rain cleanses the soul.

It also destroys your drivetrain.


Note the braze and flourishes.

Party Poster

We met Karl in Berlin, he looks good in ambient light, and riding past the Berlin Wall.


Two new names popped up recently in the ever expanding list of people looking for the magic pill. Neil Schubel of Saginaw, MI, and Chuck Coyle of Boulder, CO both were suspended in “non-analytical positive” findings. This essentially just means that they didn’t test positive in a drug test, but that there is other evidence to suggest they doped. Whatever - it’s bullshit and dumb, and they both have their own stories to tell about it.

If you’re into chasing these sorts of stories, there are number of very interesting theories about these users. I saw one thread that said Neil boosted his power 9%. Another that says Chuck was duped into lending someone his laptop. Whatever. I tend to be in the Adam Myerson camp on all this.

As Byron says, “bring me a cup and I’ll pee anyday”.
