WTF…why the fender?

27 01 2012

There’s a thread going on right now over on Vintage BMX discussing the pros and cons on installing rear fenders on race cruisers.

Yes my friends….fenders.

Turns out GHP racer Todd Parry is running a carbon fiber (?!) fender on his race cruiser to avoid “being sucked in between the tire and the seat”.

And while the different sanctioning bodies tend to frown on these kind of things, it appears that track operators are letting the use of fenders slide.

Seems a little goofy to me.

What do you guys think?

I think you have to run a slammed seat for major carnage.I had my nuts sucked in on a 26 dj with a slammed seat but never had a problem with a 24.But I did have a fender on my Redline cruiser when I lived in New Orleans just because it rained every day.

I think they look seriously silly, but if they help that rider ride better who am I to laugh?

Should add a bell and some grip palm palms. Maybe a banana seat would do the trick.

Don’t forget the basket for the can collector moto.

No seriously. This is the lamest thing I have seen in BMX since Brian Scura’s magic shows.

“The lamest thing I have seen in BMX since Brian Scura’s magic shows.” Ha ha…I’m totally stealing that line…once I stop laughing, of course.

Fenders serve a purpose if its wet sure, but they tend not to look good.

Dont laugh. I remember around 1989 1990 dudes in the nbl were def riding bananna seats. It was kind of a joke but they were riding them at nationals. To each his own

I’ve gotten sucked into my cruiser a few times. Thought I ripped my sack open one time.
