ordered sks black mudguards and conti gatorhardshell in 28 today ,im not going to bother using a 28 up front don't think theres any need to be honest, besides i have a new set of conti in 25  just waiting for summer to fit them.so that will be the finishing touches to this lovely audax , have to say i'm well pleased .
roll on the summer.

just fitting these mudguards man there a pain in the ass to get perfect ,gonna need a dremmell to cut stays kinda hard to get it dead centered over the tyre.
watched a utube video made it look very easy  :'( :'(.
have to wait now until son inlaw comes with the cutting gear
that's the latest buzz .

Anto,

You'll likely need to attach the fender/mudguard stay ends to the second set of eyelets on the rack.

The 'guards and rack look really nice being black to match the frame.  :)

Best,

Dan.

Looks terrific, Anto!  :)

You may wish to consider adding a front mudflap. A long one can go far toward keeping the drivetrain clean and will really reduce maintenance when riding in poor weather.

All the best,

Dan.

Mudguards look great, worth the effort.  Just waiting for John's approval.... I agree about the mudflap, makes a big difference.

'Just' need to cut the stays down to hide unsightly ends.
Approval..........?

Well done John, I always hold you as the gold standard when it comes to mudguards!

i put the shimano pedals back on  adjusted the cleats on my old shimano shoes  and went out around town 8 miles freezing  out there lads  :o :o.
it was crackin me up i couldn't use the new pedals because of foot pain  so had to try again ,this time was much better but still pain in my right foot not anything as near as bad as when i first tried  so getting there slowly.
i could feel the difference in the rear 28 conti  hard to believe i know but seems 3mm makes a difference but it does  ;)
that's the latest buzz from me anyone doing anything worth doing ;)
