There was no reason not to go out with our bicycles that Friday. Inspite of mild and pretty cold winds along with rain speculations, the weather turned out to be perfect for us to stroll around the city. This Friday the cool dudes from ID Fixed decided that we were to take a new route to Kota Tua, it's a very oldskool route actually fo us riders yet the first to this particular critmass. And yeah we were so excited, it's always a beautiful place to visit. Kota translates to city and Tua means old, or in Dutch "Oud Batavia" ; used to be Jakarta's central business district back in the 1600's.
The ride was great, traffic was well, traffic. I personally was confronted by an asshole in a car who was driving pretty stupid trying to get through our bike convoy but it took him about 30 seconds until he gave up and eventually "surrendered". It's not about blocking the streets and doing some crazy ass traffic bombing, we're just trying to say "hey guys, let's share the road." Got a bit confusing at the finish point because it was so very crowded and the pack got split, but everything still went better than expected.
The Fendor-Bendor is the original folding fender directed on fixed gear and road bikes, mountainbikes and cyclocross bikes. witindustries.nl
It's the ideal rear fender (mudguard) for cyclists who prefer to not ride with fenders, but sometimes do appreciate some protection. It's foldable into a flat package of only 21 x 10 cm (8.3 x 3.9 inch) that fits into a cycling jersey's back pocket or can be stored in backpack.
The Fendor-Bendor 3 is completely designed and produced in The Netherlands out of 100% recycled and recycleable plastic (Polyproplylene). The flat material gets a 3D shape by folding it on the lines along its length. It is easily slid between the frame and around the seat tube, where it attaches with a simple 2 in 1 velcro closure.
It is available in black and white and with various prints. For example the special artist editions with illustrations by Dutch artists.
