Thank you so much for all the responses to my request for information about
experience with 3D fenders. I feel like you all have provided me with some
very good options. At least a couple of the responses have included a
question of why we might be pursuing our own manufacture of fenders. So, I
have had to really think about that. But I do believe we have a need for
making our own fenders. We rely on donations and fenders are not commonly
donated. They are relatively expensive to buy. if we do buy them then it
would be tough for us to offer them on low cost/free bikes. I really like
the instructables reference provided in one of the responses. The idea of
re-purposing a disposable plastic bottle into a reasonable quality bike
fender fits our mission just right. My thanks again to all the responses.
I find this Thinktank list serve to be a very valuable resource and
educational source of information.
