Do It Yourself — Ass Saver rear fender
Do you hate getting a wet ass from the spray from your rear wheel, yet you don’t want to put on a full-sized rear fender? Then this rear fender might be just for you. Originally designed by Ass Saver, this kind of a rear fender is attached to your saddle using no tools and does exactly what the name suggests; keeps your ass dry, or at least drier.
For making this rear fender you don’t need many tools. Because it’s made out of a flexible cutting board you only need scissors and a ruler, but a ruler and box cutter will come in handy too.
You can copy the measurements that I used for my fender from the PDF file:
Note that some saddles might have different measurements, so make sure to check yours before going any further.
A good way to make sure the design works for your saddle is to use the template as a paper model. No one likes wasting material after all.
Making the rear fender
Whether you drew or printed out the template making the fender is really simple. All you got to do is tracing the design on plastic and cutting it out.
To make the fender more rigid we need to make a slight fold on the extending part. The easiest way to make this is to draw a center line on it and fold it by hand.
After this step, you’re pretty much done. Feel free to customize the design in any way you want!
