Novara "Afterburner" has a fender that straps to the downtube similar to the one in your picture.

Dear Admin,

I wanted to let you know about a recent article,

25 Bicycle Blogs to Help Protect Child Riders

I posted on my Bed Sore FAQ (http://www.bedsorefaq.com) site referencing your site. Please encourage your readers to take a look at the article.

Thanks much.



Best I can figure about the additional fender in the 2nd picture, is that it's meant to protect the pant legs a bit from the slop in the spring.


Bike 2: It's a grunge board-type fender.


I have one for my winter bike because the studded tires don't allow enough clearance for a front fender.


I had a bike like the first one, and it got stolen :(


The second one looks like dirt bike fenders or is it just me?


The dirt bike fender does not look like it belongs

Those are THE industries fenders. They are all meant for bicycles, not dirt bikes. The one strapped to the down tube isn't usually seen in conjunction with the front fender. It's usually mounted further up the downtube, but a good idea if you're that determined to stay dry. The technical name for the downtube fender is a "shroud".
