Fender Bender

That was my self-assigned job title today. I made a rear fender for my bicycle. It is starting to rain more often here in NYC and I was too lazy to go to the bike shop to buy a fender, so I decided to scrounge around the house and make one from what I had on hand (keep in mind, the bike shop is 6 short blocks away).

I took some drink cans out of the recycling and a couple of hangers and whipped together this beauty. It is pretty basic, but It had it’s maiden ride tonight to the upper west side and back and my butt stayed dry the entire time!

I thought of taking pictures during the construction, but didn’t want to interrupt my productivity. Anyway, you do get pictures of the final product.
