Rider ProtectionWhether you bike for general fitness, go on long training rides or commute to work everyday by bicycle, you probably have the proper gear to protect you from the elements. Your wet-weather gear won't protect you from wheel spray, however, which the front wheel can spit into your eyes and the rear wheel can send up your backside. Wheel spray isn't clean --- it can be a mix of dirt, sand, salt and gasoline residues. A clip-on fender is a simple solution to prevent rear wheel spray from reaching you, but a pair of full fenders will protect your face as well.

Bicycle ProtectionThe level of protection a full set of fenders gives your bike may be of more importance to you than keeping yourself clean, especially if you have an expensive or otherwise cherished bike. That same grimy water that hits your back also coats your chain, brakes, derailleur and headset if you don't use fenders. Riders whose fender-less bikes see a lot of wet riding must replace their headsets regularly, according to the Adventure Cycling Association, whereas those who use fenders rarely have headset problems.

Less MaintenanceThe bike protection provided by fenders goes hand-in-hand with reduced time spent maintaining your chain, derailleur, brakes, headset and frame. This is especially true if you ride during the winter months or live in an area that gets a lot of rain. One or two wet rides here and there isn't going to harm the components of your bike. When a bike without fenders frequently experiences wet rides, however, you need to wipe it down thoroughly and re-grease the chain after nearly every ride. It should not be used as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. LIVESTRONG is a registered trademark of the LIVESTRONG Foundation.
