Installing full fenders on my Trek 930 was one of the wisest moves I've ever made. I used to dislike the idea of fenders. I rode through the rain and changed out of my drenched clothes when I reached my destination. At the time I considered the discomfort a badge of honor. I've grown older and seem to make better decisions more often; hence fenders. Fenders let me go out and enjoy a dry ride on a day like today.
