Trondheim Skirt Guard

folding bike Trondheim with a skirt guard
This lovely submission comes from my world-traveling friend E, who noted the charm of what appears to be a home-made skirt guard on this folding bike in Trondheim.

Ever since I examined the skirt guard of that Pinarello in Washington I've been taken with the idea of giving it a try. Could be fun!

Looks about like this one: http://www.instructables.com/id/Quick-%26-Easy-Bicycle-Skirt-Guards/ I've been considering doing the same-- looks cute!

If you make one I can't wait to see it. I have been toying with that Idea, but haven't decided yet.

DIY skirtguards are such a nice idea and not as difficult as people seem to think. They can even be attached with paperclips.

Maybe I should give up on tucking my skirt guards underneath the lip of the fender. That's the way they were originally, but they were chintzy plastic. So I replaced them with stiff leather, which looks great, but any tiny shift out of adjustment and they rub against the tire, which not only causes a nasty whine, but also increases resistance, sometimes incredibly.
