Larry’s Full Fat Fender

Trike Asylum reader and Fatrike Forums member Larry has just installed his newly acquired ICE factory fender for his Full Fat. If you recall, Larry rode the Full Fat through a massive mud menagerie, and mud went everywhere, including on him. So, he ordered the newly designed fender from the factory over in England, and here is the result:

No more mess from the rear tire!

Yep, sure enough, fenders (mudguards) are a BIG necessity! A “no brainer” for sure!

    I want to see another “after” going through the mud to see how well the fender actually works. From the picture it looks like the fender doesn’t cover all the tire.

  2. Hi Art,
    Check in from time to time at the Fatrike Forums website, where Larry is a member and regular poster. He is good about updating the forum members about how things work out on his trike. If he posts another “after” photo, I’ll try and get it up on TA also.

    I think that’s just great, and hope other recumbent manufacturers follow suit, and do the same, and I hope the fella’s over in Utah Trikes read this post as they could more than likely make a fender for my ride as well….!
