I drove last week after the rain trough the city. I have no mudguards in the front, but it isn't really needed. The biggest problem is the water that is trown up and makes my ass wet.
Now I am thinking of making a water shield that I can easily ad if needed. I want to mount it from the mounthing from the front wheels to the seat.
The water felt cold. 😁

Anyone else the same problem?

Not any more. All 3 wheels now have mudguards and flaps. I learnt the hard way. Soaking wet hands and a stripe up my back. No fun. :D

My rear had mudguard. Front not, but that wasn't a problem. My biggest problem is the water that is trown to the sides of the wheels. That comes under against my legs.
I probably will ad mudguards on the front also or do it on the new frame. But that only makes my hands a bit wet.

That is true. I prefer to ride when it is dry, but I moe use my trike also as I go somewhere. So it replaced my city bike on surten moments and not only for trips.
