Fendered and Lit

Fixie getting ready for the slop. Now studs yet, but the fenders came in handy this morning. Light was proven inadequate; had a very close call this morning. Situation that was unavoidable, but somehow I came out. Probably 4" from my back tire. Would have been a side on T-bone, and I wouldn't be posting this right now. Still doesn't seem real to me.

Need your AirZound back in action. Mine loud as hell.

yeah, mine is great too! I have it on my Xtracycle though. I wouldn't be ablet to bear the site of it on my fixie though. I don't even have brakes on that bike. Clean lines are of utmost importance to me with that bike.

But, better lights and being seen will be well worth the ugliness of a bigger light.

Right never really thought of that. My bike looks like a swiss army knife. lol

Yikes! Be careful out there.

I'm glad you made it through and hope you do whatever it takes to be visible.
