Just made some sweet fenders out of some plastic report covers from the office. I can't believe people pay $40 at MEC for these.

A proper front fender will keep your feet dry… Worth the $30 bucks IMO

Tried. Not enough clearance for proper fenders. I've been planning on putting on some longer reach brakes and smaller diameter rubber to make more room but it's at the bottom of the job jar.

Just put this together from spare parts. Tires were 15 bux a peice at MEC. Rides great, will be a great cruiser for hitting up the microbreweries and sunset rides.

Anyone have a old used  26" 1-1/8 -100mm -9mm spare rigid fork they wanna sell cheap? Or where would I get one for under 50 bux in town?

Can't find anything online that is reasonable.

Dont have one on hand, but how about Sports Junkies?  They seem to have lots of older stuff kicking around.
