As far as the instant fenders go I really like the Full Windsor because the area of coverage. You might argue it's negligible since the ass saver covers the main area of spray but I've never tested and visually it looks superior albeit more bulky.

But this doesn't solve the issue for the front and you will have a lot of water on your feet and drive train without a front fender.

Raceblades are pretty thin and again might work with the bike you already have.

But ultimately as /u/autophage said, you don't want to pick a bike around it's fender capabilities because most bikes will accommodate fenders one way or another. You should think more about what kind of geometry (which affects the way you sit on the bike and overall comfort of the ride) you would like in a fixed gear and then focus on price range and then maybe fender type.

Check out /r/FixedGearBicycle and the sidebar for recommended bikes. And if you are worried about maintenance don't shy away from your LBS (local bike shop) because they will be helping you with a lot of the instillation and maintenance and establishing a relationship with them can be extremely helpful.

Pro tip: bike most mechanics love beer as tips.

clip ons will be your best bet. here you go. sks raceblade wont keep you as dry as full wrap fenders but totally worth the dryness.

also, always wanted to give these a shot...
crud road these were designed for race-bikes turned into commuters, probably would work.

On the minimalist side, you can try raceblades.

For full coverage (assuming your bike has clearance and mount points), SKS longboards come in multiple widths. The narrower ones should work with calipers and 23's.

Hello and welcome to the wonderful world of alternative transportation. Instead of just bragging about how awesome bikes are, I thought I'd link to a few bikes that are reasonably priced and come with fenders and/or racks for year round enjoyment. I ride year around with minimal fender coverage and I do just fine on my 8 mile commute from Ballard to Downtown, although I'm lucky and work for a non-profit, so we have showers in the building for commuters. I know thats not an option for a lot of larger companies. I mention this because it makes a big difference since my office is on a big hill and I get a little sweaty. But a whores bath, clean clothes and deorderant worked for me before working somewhere with showers.

Anyway, I tried to find bikes under $3k. Sounds like a lot of money, but then again my dinky fiat 500 with a 1.4 4-banger was $19k and is currently in the shop thanks to a hit and run.

Specialized AWOL "Elite" $1500 (disc brakes, fenders, racks, lots of gears, comfy handlebar and seat placement / geometry):

Specialized AWOL EVO $2500 (same as above, includes friction powered headlight, hydraulic disc brakes):

Kona Sutra $1500 (same stuff as above mostly, just a different brand):

Trek District - 3 models from $800-1100 fenders, rack, gears or single speed options:

Trek Lync - $1000-1500 - has fenders, gears and lights built in, disc brakes, smartphone connection for tracking miles, etc:

If you already have a bike but don't know shit about bikes and want to get fenders:
Portland Design Works:
Full Metal Fenders - $120 nice full coverage of the wheels:

Also from PDW, less coverage but cheaper:

Raceblade fenders are what I use, almost full coverage about $50:

The lights just flickered at my office and now our connection is 5400 baud. Hope that helps some of you try something else besides the bus and driving alone. Any bike shop will be happy to get some fenders on your bike, theres always a solution and the nice thing about shopping from a bike shop instead of online is that you're supporting the local economy. Well I guess you're supporting local when you buy from Amazon too.

SKS Raceblades. I've got them on my bike which has something like 1/2" clearance between the tire and the downtube. They fit perfectly.

It's a SKS Raceblade fender or something similar:

How would does the sizing work on SKS Raceblades, and is the fit pretty universal with most fixed? The bike I am riding is 58cm with 700 x 28 wheels.

u/ziom666 · 1 pointr/FixedGearBicycle

amazon. They are made of plastic

I have a revenio 4.0 and ended up getting a set like this of these.

Also, the Revenio is what really got me back into road riding. It's a kick ass steed. I would kill for the full carbon frame set they made this year.
