Very nice and thanks for sharing. As always you do mudguards better than anyone.  On the RST with its 26" wheels, did you use 26" or 700c? Thorn recommended the 700c version although I can never quite get them right.

They are very neat, but for best effect the rear guard needs to extend below the axle line.

The mudguards on the Audax 853 are fitted by me. Thank you for appreciating my work!
The mudguards on the RST were fitted by Thorn. It is a rare occurrence but the RST was purchased complete and as it is and I think those mudguards are 26Ē. I have seen fitted 700c mudguards and they do look better. Iíll fit 700 mudguards eventually.
The RST believe it or not, is 12 years old! Itís done over 10000 miles.
Thank you all for the interest and comments both appreciation or not!
