Okay, something is attached somewhere because I SERIOUSLY cant get that sucker to move. When the ole man came home, I had him take a look at it, (he's just as clueless as I am.) He stuck a flashlight up under the skirt on the left side, and we can actually see rivets attaching the fender to a strap.

I just soaped and oiled it, so the stirrups are all taken apart.

I took a couple of pics some were taken before the oiling and some after

So, you guys will be happy to know that we did infact get the fenders pulled down.

After getting the stirrups put back together, the length is just toooooo long for me. Even on the shortest setting, it's still tooooo long.

Take the saddle to lessons with you and ask your instructor if she has a hole punch. Knock a couple more holes in that baby and ride off into the sunset!!!!

Glad you got the fenders down!!!

It should fit just fine. I brought my trainer with me. Even if it doesn't, I can return it for a refund or a trade.


Dumas' I put the fenders back to where they were, but at least now I know that they can be dropped and how to do it. One was SUPER easy, and the other was really hard.
