I will have to support my distinguished brethern, Kurt, to the west. "aerodynamic advantage" imparted by fenders? where did this voodoo physics "fact" come from? I really need to see the text reference. cheers, Dave Anderson Cut Bank MT

I understood that fenders only confer an aero advantage whilst braking. TT bikes would have fenders if there were any advantage wouldn't they? I'd be interested in any tests that concluded that fenders decrease aero drag and the methodology used to arrive at that conclusion.
