I ride a surly cross-check set up as a fixee/SS and also use it as a winter commuter (Rochester, NY... lots of snow, slush, etc). Last winter I somehow managed to survive without fenders, but I'm not planning on doing that again (if nothing else, for the sake of the frame/components to keep the salt off). Anyone have a recomendation of a good set of cheap fenders to use (f+r) that will keep it clean (at most I run about a 30c geax blade tire)

Peace and Light,

SKS (used to be Esge) is a really nice full coverage fender. I don't think you'll have any problem with clearance on the cross-check. I have these on two bikes currently. Another decent option is Planet Bike.

Personally, I'd have a 62 starburst strat and a post 65 telecaster. Ha ha ha!

Seriously, I have some Mt Zephal clip-ons, and they have really been the business - drilled to holes on the front (they are plastic) and zip tied them onto the top of the forks - works a treat (I have no hole to screw them on at the top of the forks, obvioulsy no need if your forks have holes) - the rear just clips right on.
