A couple more ingenius bike modifications I’d like to share.
This first one I saw parked in the bike rack at Providence Medical Center the other day. It’s a fender made out of duct tape and a flip-flop sandal.
There are tons of interesting fender modifications in this town, but I’ve never seen this method before.
And then this morning at Breakfast on the Bridges I ran into a neat guy with a thick southern accent sporting this very nifty cargo trailer and hitch combo.
He’s using an aluminum baseball bat as the hitch and the chassis of a shopping cart as the trailer, all tied together with a hefty leather belt.
He said it worked well and he went on and on about his plans to improve upon the design. I think he’s off to a fine start.

I love this town!
Such a nice man, too.
So, that’s really cool! An idea I’ve been having is to have a show or friendly contest on creative bike fenders. I’ve seen so many ingenious ones around and I believe they deserve some spotlight.
I think a FedEX tube used as a rear fender on track bike is way cooler than those cheeseball plastic fenders.
