And way more here.
Together with Olaf Wit and Joris van Tubergen I designed and produced the Fendor-Bendor.
We used a laser cutter to produce a lot of prototypes until we had the perfect fix. The full story is here.
You can order or pick up yours at Pristine Fixed Gear, Amsterdam.

For many fixed gear riders, it’s a common problem: it’s raining  hard… and you do not have fenders on your track bike, because you  don’t like them. What to do? 
Some buy mountain bike specific mudguards, others go for traditional  fenders for which many track frames are not prepared. Many do not like  both solutions and simply get very wet.
Actually, what we really want is a fender that is ONLY THERE WHEN YOU  NEED IT. And that can be easily removed once the rain has stopped. This  was the idea behind the Fendor-Bendor: a pliable bicycle fender, that  can be placed in seconds, and removed just as fast. Once removed off the  bike, it can be folded small and flat, so that it takes no room in your  bag. All very simple and functional.
The Fendor-Bendor is made out of laser-cut PP foil, with folding  lines. By using the folding lines in the length direction, the fender  gets its sturdiness. It stays in shape by placing it between the seat  stays of your frame, and folding it around the seat tube. By using the  folding line in the middle, it can be folded in half.
The flexibility of the material works beautifully. If the  Fendor-Bendor is hit by something, it simply flexes and gets back into  its shape. This makes it a very robust solution, too!

COLORS: black, marine, white, grey, orange, ultramarine, red (red is rear-light empowering!)
