Rear Bike Fenders

Rear Bike Fenders

Every time I see a bike I used to wonder that what is the use of that delicate covering on wheels which always make me wonder that it will be falling very soon & what is the use of plastic covering as no one can sit on it & also why should I waste my money on such useless thing. But this was a myth my friends When I started riding bikes. I learned the importance of fenders & how they are helping in increasing life of a bike.

As the rainy season is going on we protect ourselves from rain with the help of raincoats, umbrellas & other water proofing solutions. But we forget that our bikes too doesn’t like the muddy water & many other things. The water kicked up by your wheels is much worse for your bike than the clean rain falling from the sky. If you ride in wet conditions without fenders, your chain, derailers and brakes will all get sprayed with sandy, muddy, scummy water, often mixed with gasoline residue. This is very bad for these parts.

Even more vulnerable is the lower section of your headset. Headsets are designed to shed water like the shingles of a roof, and are basically rainproof...but the gritty spray from below has easy & smooth entry to the bearing surfaces of the heavily-loaded lower races. So it is always important to use fenders in your bike.

There are many types of fenders which can be used according to your biking needs & desires. The most common fenders are

Full-length Fenders: The rear fender runs from the chain stays all around the rear tire until it is pointing almost straight down at the back. The good ones have two pairs of stays (wire struts) to hold the rear part in position, and also attach to the seat stay and chain stay bridges. The corresponding front fender extends from about 6 inches in front of the fork, rearward and down well below the "equator" of the front wheel, again with stays. Ideally, the front should also be equipped with a mud flap to protect your feet and the chain wheels from spray. This are also known as traditional fenders.

Clip-ons: Shorter, clip-on fenders are slightly better than nothing, but very much worse than real fenders. Some rear racks have a flat plate on top which may prevent the "skunk stripe" on your back, but which do nothing to protect the bike. Unfortunately, many newer bike are poorly designed, following silly fads that make it difficult or impossible to install full-length fenders. These bikes are designed for fair-weather use, and are not intended for serious biker.

Thank You have a safe Bike Riding.

      I was always wondering about what is the use of rear bike fenders and why should I spend my money on this useless thing. I just read 6dollaressay reviews and got wonderful ideas about essay writing.But this article has told me that these fenders are not useless at all.
