Meet "Walter" the Waterford waterbike. Now with black crank and brakes. These TRP mid reach brakes are really sticky, almost too sticky. and this bike is badass, almost too badass!

I agree with tuscanyswe, I liked silver better as well but still looks super nice. This is really a great looking bike, great pick up.

But still really unsightly. Out of place on such a nice bike IMO. Why not replace with L-bracket? Those fender stays are pretty flexible as well, (also unsightly) so flexing/vibrating fender more prone to striking close-fitting tire over bumps. Also would attach the front with a daruma. Stiffer and would give you chance to rotate it forward a bit. As is sits, water will spray up off the front tire and back at you. Sorry to nit-pick, but if serious about rain bike, why not get real fenders set up properly?

whats a daruma?
You apparently have a lot of experience with different fender setups, thanks for the insight.
So far I have not had any problems in the rain with water splash, but ill keep an eye on it. i just bought the bike off the forum setup with these snazzy fenders which are even painted to match. they seem to work just fine (other than the noise i fixed), so i didn't see any need to fix something that is working. And as far as i can tell, they are real, just as real as the fenders on my other 2 fendered bikes (berthoud and honjo). we just got 8 inches of rain in 4 days, i got to test it out pretty good, riding 3 of the 4 days. I didn't experience any splashup.
If i start having issues, ill keep your take in mind

Sorry, Just being super nit-picky. I do think the matching color is very cool. If these do work as good your honjo and Berthoud that is cool. Those were the fenders Io was thinking of. BTW, daruma bolt attaches the fender at the fork crown. It loops around the brake bolt inside the steer tube.

These fenders have a bracket in the front fender to attach to brake hole so no dare a necessary, you would have to cut the bracket out and drill a hole for the dark a, not necessary. L bracket in the back would work but this looks fine I only and if it's not giving trouble I would stay with the setup.


As far as water spraying back at you, metal fenders do similar stuff unless you use a flap. I just got caught in racy rain yesterday with my berthoud fenders and feet were soaked, got me searching mud flaps when I got home

No worries on the nitpicky, i like to learn more stuff about more stuff.

How about a couple more pics with bigger rubber?

I was thinking of spray off top of tire as it exits the front of the bike. Fender needs to extend forward enough to prevent spray being directed up and being blown back at torso level.

The mudflap thing is another issue. I experimented with different mounting positions/orientations but haven't gotten them to work as well as I would hope.
