Hey there, fellow SF bike commuter.

I use this for my rear (road bike) wheel. Cheap, stays in place, keeps the rain off.

I don't use one for my front wheel - the downtube does most of the work, and my feet take the rest. I ride flat pedals, and purchased FiveTen Freerider Element XVI (weather-resistant) shoes. As long as you tie the laces tight, they work pretty well for anything short of a downpour.

I've got a pretty good setup at work - a fan under my desk to help dry stuff out between rides, and I bring an extra set of commute clothes if it's really pouring.

These work great:

Not small enough to fit in a backpack (it'll stick out some) but very easy to install/remove and does a great job catching rear-wheel spray. Clamps to the seat post and can easily be adjusted to fit around a saddlebag/light.

I used to live at 2nd and Wharton and would ride my bike to Federal/Elsworth and lock my bike up on the North East corner of Broad and Federal on really snowy days. Right here to be exact. I would lock my back wheel and frame to the staple rack w/ a U-Lock and a shitty cable lock between the front tire and the U-Lock. In the 20 or so times I locked it there the only thing that was stolen was one of these plastic mud guards, because I forgot to take it with me.

Replaced that mud guard with mounted ones and never had a problem. I work from home now, so not really an issue.

I have SKS fenders for my MTB and Planet Bike ones for my commuter. They're both absolutely necessary here in Washington. Fenders are the first thing I recommend to people I work with who ask me about commuting. They go a long way to improve the quality of your ride. Congratulations on your first commute.

It does the job for something that's easy to take off and on.

Here it is on Amazon.

A few weeks ago I got one of those fenders that clips onto the seat post. It's ugly as sin, but damn if it doesn't work like a charm. That would actually be a good motto for cycling in general: "Yeah it's ugly, but damn if it doesn't work."

Getting some clip-on fenders could help a lot. I put this and this on my cross bike and my feet still get soaked but the face splash and back stripe are gone.

For more comfortable, I would consider buying a rear fender. At least you won't get the mud trail up your back when you bike in the rain/slush.

For safer, I would buy yourself a high visibility vest, like this. Do you own a helmet? You should get one of those as well.

u/TypeQuandry · 1 pointr/bicycling

What style fenders do people like? Is a front one ever necessary? Most of the splash is on my back. I was looking at this one (link) which seems pretty popular, but it's a funny shape.

I've always been a fan of the ol' Beaver Tail.

Mountain bike fenders don't look like commuter fenders, they're more heavy plastic clip-on things:

This one works pretty well for the back wheel and is really convenient.
