Check your bike right now and ask these questions:
Do you have a bike that needs a set of fenders, but you are not sure what size to get? And once you have the right size, do you feel unsure about how to install them on your bike? Can you simply not find a functional and beautiful set of bicycle fenders?
After our two successful Kickstarter launches, we received many requests to craft stylish fenders for the Bamboobee, and this inspired us to design a customizable bike fender to suit every bikes and all every needs.
- Versatile and interchangeable: The Mandy Fender is the most versatile bike fender ever designed.It fits nearly every type of bike design: You no longer need a different bike fender for each bike you own.
- Easy to install: The Mandy Fender comes with all the parts and tools you need. With a simple video tutorial and a clear instruction manual, anyone can install the Mandy Fender in 30 minutes or less.
- Tough and functional: Designed and made from bamboo, the Mandy Fender is light, durable and weather resistant. The mounting hardware consists of both 304 stainless steel and chrome-plated parts.
The Mandy Fender is made from a layer of memory film (patent pending) and laminated with two layers of bamboo veneers. After a five-minute application of hot air (from a hair dryer), it will keep its shape forever – or until it is reheated again to reshape to a different bike! As a result, the Mandy Fender fits on almost all bikes using the mounting hardware provided.
The Mandy Fender can be assembled and fitted to your bike within 30 minutes with three simple steps - Mounting -> Forming -> Assembling (all tools needed are provided in the kit!).
Its intuitive design makes the Mandy Fender fully customizable. It can **change from one bike to another because you can take the fender off easily.
*Online video tutorials and our knowledgeable customer service support team are always available.
**Please note: interchanging the Mandy Fender between different bikes works best when adapting to the same size wheels. For changing between larger wheels to smaller wheels, the fender will need to be trimmed.
Mandy Fenders can handle water, mud and practically any other harsh weather condition you can put them through.
The bamboo and mounting hardware are made from top quality material.
Bamboo veneer ages differently, and so a unique look is achieved for each bike.
Overview of the Mandy Fender
Three Assembly Methods: There are three main placements of where the Mandy Fender could fit on any bike. *No hidden cost for different mounting hardware for all assembly methods. Tutorial videos will be available at the conclusion of the campaign.
Compatible Wheel Sizes: The Mandy Fender can be fitted to most wheel sizes available on the market. Generally, there are 4 main types - 20”, 24”, 26” & 700C for city bikes. (Your bike might be 16”, 18”, 20”, 24”, 26”, 27.5”, 28”, 29” depending on the design)
Dimension: The Mandy Fender is sold as a set with the front and rear fenders together:
The standard width of the Mandy Fender is 45 mm. Are you a perfectionist? Do you want the specific width for your bike? Yes, it’s possible by upgrading $10 - $30 for the exact size.
Designs: The Mandy Fender comes in two different bamboo veneers (Authentic & Honest Black). You’ll select which one you want after the end of the campaign.
Easy to build: The Mandy Fender's patent-pending memory film is malleable and not solid hard. You do not need an electric drill to drill the holes out. Specific drill punches are provided for you to hit with a hammer (not provided) on the marked points. It is this easy to install. *You only need one hammer for the entire build.
Mandy Fender's Secret: The Mandy Fender's patent-pending technology can be found in the memory film that sits between the two veneers. The fibre expands when it is exposed to hot air, thus allowing it to deform and reform to any surface when it is cool.
Mandy Fender's Safety Feature: Based on user feedback, we learned that the front wheel would sometimes lock if jammed by the fender. As a result, we’ve added a safety feature where the metal holder will snap off in emergency situations, preventing the wheel from jamming and throwing the biker off. *To be included free when the campaign reaches a certain goal.
Shipping Cost: For this campaign,t he unit ships for $10 to most countries (United States, United Kingdom, European Union, Japan, South Korea & Singapore), and it ships for $15 to the rest of the world.
About Mandy Fendy
Back in April 2013 and November 2014, we started two separate Kickstarter campaigns. One campaign was to fund the creation of a bamboo bike, and the other campaign was for the creation of a kit to build your own bamboo bike. These two campaigns allowed us to share our passion for bamboo bikes, and we were thrilled by the support of countless people who shared this same passion as us. Ultimately, these individuals bought our award winning bikes and enjoyed the process of building something unique for themselves. People soon discovered that the bike frame is only one component of a complete bike.
Accessories such as the fender became a desired addition for people to customize their bikes and add a new level of functionality.
The Problem We SolveWe have received numerous requests to develop a durable, functional and natural looking fender that can fit a wide range of bicycles. The most significant challenge is that many bikes have different measurements, significantly increasing production costs. We met this challenge by designing a universal fender that can be easily customized to different bicycles. With this unique approach, the Mandy Fender has revolutionized the fender industry with a significant step forward.
Why Become a Mandy Fender Supporter
From the two previous Kickstarter campaigns back in April 2013 and November 2014, the Bamboobee team gained important experience to manage this campaign even better. Previously, we faced some small issues during the delivery phase of the second campaign, and today we are in better shape to streamline our performance and adhere to our proposed timeline.

Risks and challenges
As with all products, manufacturing is often subject to challenges – both foreseeable and unforeseeable. With our experience shipping the Bamboobee bicycle and the Build It Yourself (BIY) Bike Frame Kit internationally, the team has gained valuable experience to better collaborate with our logistics partners who can control and manage the risks.
Our team is committed to delivering the Mandy Fenders because we have a common vision of seeing the product on bicycles around the world.
Consequently, on the logistics side, we have forged a strong partnership with our logistics providers over a three-year period . The CAD drawings and raw materials are ready, and production can start immediately upon the end of this crowdfunding project.
Throughout the project, we will be transparent with our progress, and timely updates will be communicated with all backers – it is the least that we can do.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
