These fun, no frills fenders at http://ass-savers.com/ seem like a cool idea and I really like the nifty video, but how hard would they be to make at home?
Anybody ever made anything like this? Did it work/not work? Stashing one of these under a saddle or in a bag seems like a handy alternative for those days when you dont happen to have your clip on fender and its pissing down cats and dogs..
An interesting concept. Long before I built my touring bike commuter-mobile I had a road bike that I was loath to desecrate with fenders. I looked at all the race blade type fenders and such, thinking I could get away with something temporary that wouldn't spoil the look of my bike. I've never been a huge fan of any of the blade type rear fenders. I see plenty of folks using them, but they only really seem to work well when they're set so they almost touch the rear wheel. Also, those seat post or saddle mounted jobs don't do anything for all the water that your front wheel sprays up on your legs and all over your down tube. Nope, there's no real substitute for a good set of fenders. Caught out in an unexpected storm? Look at the forecast before you leave in the morning. If you have to have a spiffy road bike unencumbered by ugly fenders, then have a rainy day bike and a sunny day bike.
