Default Re: New guy here!

Cycloptishred ... I ride in the rain too, and it doesn't cause me any problems with the bike, but it can get annoying for me the rider. I built my own windshield for a Huffy Cranbrook for some rain protection, and it helps alot both with the rain and the wind. It's 24 in high X 36 in. wide, and doesn't seem to affect the speed at all. I made it out of plexiglass, but the wind blew it over when parked and shattered it. Since then I've purchased a 36 in X 48 in piece of Lexan to re-do it ($72.00 ---ouch! ) I think a guy could probably find a pre-formed windshield for only a little more and save some work.
