Question: I live in rainy Washington State and want to put fenders on my winter training bike. But it doesn’t have eyelets on the rear dropouts or fork. Any suggestions? — Randy P.
Coach Fred Matheny Replies: Use zip ties!
Simply zip tie the fender struts to the dropout. Use some tape to avoid scratching the paint. You also can use zip ties to attach the fender to the rear brake bridge and chainstay bridge, dispensing with the metal clips that come standard on most fender sets.
