Lets make a bike fender with reused materials.
Its GREEN, its EASY, its FAST and its USEFUL.


1 pet bottle
1 useless mouse cable

Step 1: Cutting the fenders and holes

1-Pick the PET bottle and cut it in the half excluding the top and the bottom,
2-Round the corners.
3-Make two tiny parallel cuts one near the middle up and the other in the middle donw...(this holes are to pass the wire or the strip that will fix into the bike frame).
This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image of the final project to the intro step. Please do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks!

Hey, I've just received a free Minecraft Giftcode! <br>You can get one too! <br> <br>&gt;&gt; minecraftcodes.me &lt;&lt;
Did you wrap your frame in electrical tape?
Yes.<br>cause this frame is painted in a beautiful ferrari red and this is an urban bike meant to not be stolen.
I see. I see. <br>
Bike itself remains dirty. I keep looking for a cheap and green alternative for doing full fenders. Being detachable is also important. Congratulations!
I have just arrived from heavy tests with this fenders and two questions remains: -Making curves makes the tire go off the front fender area. We may make it larger or think about some attached to the front fork that could be also easy to remove in trips. I saw some retractible ones, not green neither cheap. -In high speeds the rear fender needs to be moved a little bit more to the back, we may thing about extend this one in two parts for full coverage. Besides all this, it can handle most of day by day needs in some minutes. Thanx for the comment...ill think about it for the next project.
