i have a 60cm kilo with a rear fender. does anyone else with a kilo find that in the rain the downtube puts off a lot of spray? im looking to get a front fender for this problem. I rode to class today and got soaked from the knees down in snowy dirt. My old bike didnt have this problem, maybe its just because the angles are different.
just seeing if anyone else has this going on.
Only just barely fenders. Sadly, I think they may be your only option for clearance reasons, but I’m not 100% on this.[/quote]
they just barely keep the rain off on me, which is all i ask of a fender on my rain bike.
Fair enough. Definitely not a solution in snowy climates, the slushy stuff splashes all over the place, and when the roads are heavily salted it’s way more important to keep the wet nastiness off of your bike. Seriously, the liquids found on the roads in places like this were specifically designed to destroy bikes.
One time when I was driving to the trick meetup spot with my sweet BMW it got rained on while on the roof rack. It seemed to cause my Oury’s to get pretty slippery when I got the bike down, so I got some lockon grips in case it happens again. That being said the Hometrainer tire laid down some phatty skids in the wet, so you win some you lose some.
