I live in the Pacific Northwest and this time of year it rains. A lot. Most of my neighbours have fenders but none of them are riding fixed gear road bikes. A big part of the appeal of a fixie is the clean, minimalist look of the machine and I just can't see me putting fenders on the Motobecane. I have seen some very nice looking wooden ones made by small shops in the States but still, I don't think a set is in my future. I'll just wear my GoreTex and pedal through the monsoons like I've always done.
