I have been looking round for some mud guards for the commuter, came across these that looked ok. Had to buy the bike as well.

The shakedown run this afternoon in the rain was quite pleasant. Will make my run to work in the morning ok even though I have to work on Sunday.

Had to improvise a bit to even fit the front fender on, and to have barely any clearance at the front. Approx 13kg plus my weight, one bidon, saddle bag and backpack


will replace eventually with some wider tyres, probably something in 25c

Dat dof!

Indeed. What are you shooting with, minhyy?

New commuter just setup.

Merida T5, Tioga bags and racks, Selle SMP seat, mudguards. Just waiting a new set of Ergo grips..... Still new to this so adjusting as I go! I had a road racer which couldn't take bags, so had to 'upgrade' so I can bring lunch and a laptop...

If I am so far left the trees are hitting my arms, I can't move over any further..... Go around!

Used to be a trek,


broke frame


so got hold of a Norco frame and a bits and pieces bike now with velocity deep V rims, brooks saddle, butterfly bars set up for my bob trailer but intermittently wears a rack and some panniers

has a mini newt light for dawn and dusk and a xeccon for darker nights
