Rear Fender

I think a fender on the rear is absolutely essential.  I've had wet stripes up my back along with dirt & grit in in my hair ... way too many times.

This fender is bolted on in two spots (front and top front).  The wires at the rear are currently Gorilla Taped into place on the inside of the frame.  At least they aren't rattling too much ...  I'll drill & tap holes to bolt them on .. shortly.

More on Mesh

I rode the trike 15 miles today.  Climbed a fairly stiff 2-mile hill between the 7-1/2 to 9-1/2 mile markers.  No issues with the mesh seat.  very comfortable.  Before I started, I did place a 1-1/2" wide x 3/4" thick block between the seat connector and the main tube.  What this did was push the lower end of the seat slightly up in the air so that I wasn't fighting sliding down off it.  Good ride with no seat issues.
