Long Leather Mud Flaps
Long "buddy" flaps are used to keep road grime and water off the faces of riders behind you - a necessity during brevets.
These long fender mud flaps are cut from 13-15 ounce Wickett & Craig fine harness leather. The leather is oiled for durability and long life and won't wrinkle like other flaps made of too thin leather. They're 24.5cm long and 11.5cm at the widest.
Price is per flap. Recommended for fenders 45mm and wider. Includes mounting hardware.
Made in Annapolis, Maryland.
These arrived shortly after ordering in very great packaging and all of then components were in great condition. The flaps are nice and thick, but still pliable so you can shape them a little to your fender and the hardware was good quality as well. I’ve been on several rides already and they work great.
I chose the honey finish which is pretty light, very natural looking color. I suspect these will darken up some with age, but probably not much.
Overall very satisfied and would definitely order again.
The nice copper fenders do not exgtend low enough to protect feet and crankset. The brown mud flap variation matches the 10 year old Brooks Competition Brown saddle with Copper Rivets and the 8 or 9 year old Leather Brooks bar tape, both of which vary in shades of brown. The flap is a bit thicker and heavier than expected, but this bike was built with reliability not weight in mind.
