    Hi Pete - I totally agree with you. I've got mudguards on my winter bike...and always have had. The photos were taken before we took delivery of any. We've got some now though, here...

  • Pete

    None of them have mudguards, surely essential for a British Summer, let alone Winter?! Nor any way of carrying all that Winter kit to & from work... Old grouch? Me?
