My fender was toast, and based on Dartre's phone conversation in French I thought they'd have a replacement. But no, so instead they cleverly fastened a reinforcing piece over the area that was broken up around the rear brake bridge.
Voila! Cycles Alex Singer workers had me re-fendered. Their shop is a trip, and the bikes...tres manufique.
I'll post more pics another day, but as I asked for one more quick pic of them together they insisted I hurry as they were closing for lunch. That's civilized!
Keep it mended,
