Dirtbag Bike Fender

I spent an afternoon wandering around downtown Seattle, “hunting” bikes. I didn’t find much, but this  beater Norco bike locked to a signpost caught my eye because of the total dirtbag rear fender created from baling wire and a scrap of thin plywood— looks like a chicnk of packing crate. I imagine it may have started out longer, but that’s not an absolute. It is a study in make-do practical minimalism: it’s just enough to block the stream of spray up the rider’s backside.
