Planet Bike Cascadia fenders for the geared Cross Check. I'm not sure when I took the original fenders off this bike and I have no idea where they went to, but it has been a while since I've had adequate protection on my favorite ride.
Some may say that fenders look dorky. I would say they look better than dried worms, road debris and a creaky bottom bracket look on your bike. I do wish I had gone with the silver color though. This bike has too much black happening. It's because I chicken out every time I choose a component or accessory... just when I think I'm brave enough to go flashy. Perhaps some new bar tape is in order to liven things up a bit. We'll see.
In the meantime, I'm no longer afraid of the rains. Bring it. I armed for just about any circumstance.
Get out there.
