I ride to work most days. If I'm getting a cold or something, I sometimes hop on the bus. I save no time by riding the bus, so I rarely do it.
About a month ago, I installed Planet Bike full-coverage plastic fenders on my bike, a mid-80's Schwinn Tempo. I've got the Hardcore fenders. http://www.amazon.com/Planet-Bike-Hardcore-Road-Fender/dp/B002KCFSPI
I'm pretty sure that the bike racks on public transit buses are fairly universal, in the U.S. anyhow. They appear to be the same on all of the transit buses I've used throughout California and in the Chicago area. Maybe there are different ones--but in these two areas they appear to be the same. http://bicycling.511.org/transit.htm
My question is this. Will the fenders interfere with the bar that goes over the front wheel?
I haven't tried it because I don't want to inconvenience other bus users by futzing with a bike that might not fit.
