What would be a better way to kick off the fourth generation of a fender that was born on the streets, than to launch a special edition with the living legend Chas "@notchas" Christiansen?
Chas is one of those guys who wants to try everything and manages to pull most of it off. With his roots in the messenger world of San Francisco, he's the urban face of Oakley and a core member of the MASH SF family. He runs a messenger company, is the frontman of a punk band, and is successful in a variety of endeavors. Needless to say, Chas rips any bike, anywhere.
If you are familiar with this renaissance rider, you haven't missed his signature scribble style of illustration that has ornamented products from Giro, Cinelli, Selle San Marco, and many others.
The FENDOR BENDOR Regular is dubbed "Excelsior" and fits Chas's lifestyle of "ever upwards" and spreading positive vibes wherever he can. We're happy to join him in his ever ongoing "search for stoke"!
The Fender Bendor fits all frames with the standard seat stays. It's self-supportive and doesn't require support from the brake bridge or the seat stays. It can also be mounted directly on a seat post (as low as possible for best effect). The Fender Bendor will not fit if you have mostly a frame or a center-pull brake.
The scoring lines along the fender need to be folded hard in order to give it the necessary rigidity and strength. Take extra care to fold down the outer edges to make sure your Fendor Bendor is functioning properly.
Each Fender Bendor is delivered with a small set of transparent 3M polyurethane protection stickers. Use these to protect your seat stays from scratches from the fender.
The Fender Bendor can always be folded back into a small package for storage in a bag or jersey pocket.
