Handmade bikes are cool. Handmade bikes with handmade wooden fenders? Even cooler.
Woody’s Fenders makes wooden add-ons for bikes. The “Chop Chort” rear fender pictured above clips on the bike with steel hardware at the seat stay brace. It’s compatible with caliper brakes. Different styles get different woods – walnut, maple, mahogany, teak, bubinga, oak, cherry, leopard, and more. Pricing on the teak “Chop Chort” pictured is $30.00. Laminated with slow cure epoxy, the elements shouldn’t ever bother it. Total length is 18 inches. You can buy a rear fender or place a custom order at Woody’s website and Etsy store.

Also offered are are these sick compound fender sets, left, and flat fenders right. They’re the same style as the fenders on our Spot Commuter, but a little more streamlined and, of course, wooden. Compound fenders are bent, so they block more debris. But they also cost more, around $180 for set, opposed to the roughly $100-$120 for Woody’s flat fenders. Made from the same kinds of wood as the “Chop Chort” fenders, there’s a huge selection to choose from. Both compound and flat fit 700c and 27″ wheels. The compound fenders featured above are cherry, with a bloodwood strip with bands of wenge and maple. The flat fenders are leopard wood with maple stripes and are edged with African mahogany.
Chain guards from Woody’s Fenders cost $100. They’ll make them custom. The guard featured is wenge with a maple stripe.
All can be picked up or custom ordered at the Woody’s Fenders website.
