thought i'd post early so you cats can start saving and send ahead just in case there are mail delays.

i figure i get to be classic and modern at the same time and can keep my merckx in its neither here nor there flavour (oops ... just remembered its "flavor" over here in USACorp.) aint bad considering i'll have a dry ass and its cheap compared to one of them sissy indoor trainers.

talk about sleek and svelte - 23mm wide and 60 grams (ok ok the hardware is another 150 grams). they look like a probable thing under short reach brakes and tight race geometry clearances - im willing to take the risk thanks :-)

much appreciated

I like my "sissy indoor trainer".Especially when it's 10 degrees below zero and a wind chill of 20 below!!!

Wow! Those are the most beautiful fenders I've seen, but they seem a bit expensive. Does anyone know where to get similar low profile fenders that will fit on a typical road bike? Most of the 700c fenders I've seen are pretty bulky and would likely require cantilever brakes and some extra room around the stays and fork. I don't need carbon fiber. Plastic will do.
