I am considering city bikes like the Pedego City Commuter. Most of them have fenders. I took a look at the three non-electric bikes I've kept in my garage and noticed none of them have fenders. Growing up, I had ridden bikes with fenders and always had trouble with the fenders rubbing against the tires. So, since then I never wanted fenders on my bikes. I've been happy enough with the fenderless bikes I've ridden. I can remember only a couple of times when I was caught riding in the rain, that I wished I had fenders. And don't fenders collect dirt on the inside. How would you clean that?
