Surly Pugsley fat bike fenders diy

Yesterday I made some fenders for my fat bike. This design would work with any model: Salsa Mukluk, Surly Pugsley... and/or all the other custom frames. It all went together pretty quickly, about an hour total labor, cutting and perfecting. The tubing is 4" diameter corrugated drain piping. It cost $4 for a 6 foot section at the local hardware store. Because you cut the piping in half you get 12 feet of material! I actually cut the pipe in half and then took another inch of material from the side to give better clearance for the tires. The front fender fits over the fat bike wheel, but I usually commute on the studded tire pictured, so it looks like I have tons of clearance. The piping is a little flexible when cut and it will not cooperate if you want it curve perfectly around the tire. See files below for more pictures.
