commuter bike fenders - SKS Chromoplastics
SKS Chromoplastics Fender Set Silver, 35mm 700 x 20/28
Touring and commuting are sad experiences in wet weather, unless your steed is equipped with the SKS P45 Road Fenders. These wider (45mm) fenders accommodate the larger tire sizes found on touring bikes and city commuters, and they extend further down to catch every bit of spray before it can reach your clothes or frame. Stainless steel hardware won't rust, and the plasticized aluminum fender material cleans up in a flash.
Material: aluminum, laminated plastic, stainless hardware
Weight: (pair) 532 g
Recommended Use: wet weather road riding, touring, commuting
Dull utilitarian commuter dream bike
Nothing too shiny or theft-attractive on this bike. Paint is a $5 rattle-can gray with a textured finish which seems rather durable - although I would love to have a true chip resistent powder-coat on a city bike. Fenders always seem to discourage thieves - they quickly infer that a fully dressed bike is less valuable than a lighter weight Racing bike or a MTB... and a rear luggage rack also adds a bulky appearance to any bike... Both of these accessories are true functional necessities for my city bikes. Nothing wrong with the original wheelset, but I had built this wheelset for the greater availability of a broad variety of very practical 700c tires (which are always going on sale, somewhere) - versus the original 6-speed wheelset with 27" rims requiring far more limited 27" tire styles. And, I had also decided to space the rear of the frame to 130 mm. so I could easily and quickly exchange wheelsets if needed to meet sudden weather changes during the winter months... instead of struggling with time consuming temporary tire replacements. An important consideration for a dedicated commuter bike (in my opinion). These hubs are Shimano 105 (5500, 9-speed) - purchased new (on sale, under $40 for the pair)... used stainless steel spokes... new inexpensive Araya alloy rims (on sale for only $5 each)... 9-speed SRAM cassette [PG-970] 11-12-14-16-18-21-24-28-32t (found on sale for less than $20). ~ It pays to always look for clearance sale items of potential worth for future use.
Serotta Rapid Tour Commuter
This has been my beloved commuter bike for the past three seasons. It rules. Just the perfect balance between sporting and touring (OK, I'd like just a bit more tire/fender clearance, but that's being very picky). I just converted it to a singlespeed. How sweet it is to be able to drop it from a few inches and hear nothing but tires boinging. No chain slapping, shifters clicking, etc.
