Any clues about finding or fitting fenders to a small wheel bike? I'm talking about a Terry with a
24" nominal (22" actual, 25-520) front wheel.

I've got extra fenders hanging around, but they're all for 700c / 27" wheels (or super-wide ones for
ATB 26"). The radius doesn't match.

Any good sources out there? Or has anybody had good luck re-shaping either Esge or Bluemels, perhaps
with a bit of heat?

Planet Bike Freddy fenders come in a 20" size, and they're widely used on recumbents. Or, if your
aesthetic sense can stand it, you might check out Kent Peterson's web site and look at his
instructions for making homemade fenders out of coroplast election signs. I have to warn you,
though, they are so ugly they aren't for the faint of heart. We're talking Gorgon-ugly here, enough
to think about Oedipus reaching for that pin...
