Adventures on a Folding Bike
Last year I wrote about making my own milk jug mud flaps for “Olivia”. They worked well and I was happy with how they turned out.
However, over time, the plastic bent and broke and the mud flaps developed holes. Obviously a hole in your mud flaps makes them less effective.
I then decided to purchase mud flaps that are designed to fit on the Brompton folding bike so when I fold and stow my bike, they won’t bend or break. However, since the Brompton fenders are more square and the Citizen fenders are more round, I needed to trim and alter the mud flaps to fit properly and not drag against the tire. Very easy to do with a sharp knife.
“Olivia” is now ready for the wet winter weather and will be easier to keep clean. Here’s to lots of rain and snow!
