As a commuter, I frequently find myself riding over wet roads and puddles, even when it's not raining. Unless I suit up in full rain gear, I end up with dirty water and scree up my back. Well, used to. Now that I've got fenders on, puddles be damned! After a few wet rides, they already feel well worth the investment. The fenders themselves are light, sturdy, stable, and very attractive. Putting them on took a bit longer than I expected, but the instructions were adequate to get me through the process. Couldn't be happier with my purchase!
