A Soggy Ride?

It would seem, at least to me, that cutting the rear fender that far back on a road bike will result in a rather wet experience if there is any moisture on the road.

Note that Our Intrepid Rider has also removed the front fender. So he can get equally soaked on both sides, I guess.

If the cops take a good look at this machine, I don't expect they'll be overly impressed by the license plate that's affixed with zip-ties.

Not to mention the shortie helmet that isn't going to protect well at all in the event of a crash (but it has a DOT sticker purchased at the five and dime stuck on it so that makes it okay), or lack of any wind protection at all that will have him blinking tears out of his eyes and blowing gnats out of his nose. And the street shoes and tweed slacks that will protect him in a crash about as well as tissue paper. But hey, he looks cool, and that's all that matters, right?

Without a front fender the front wheel throws shit up off of the road which then flies back into your face... No matter what you think looks cool, those engineers that put the part on did so for a reason.
