After a misty morning commute with a set of aluminum Honjo fenders I was wondering if/how the french constructeurs incorporated tire savers with fenders to knock off glass and thorns and other debris to prevent punctures. Were they ever used? What did they look like: a piece of spoke bent into a U? or were there little brushes at the ends of the fenders somehow?
