Yup, the Crud's might not enhance the look of a bike, but they sure are damn effective
Just got some electronic scales and they say it weighs 27.12lbs!
I have formed a cunning plan to get the best out of the seasonal changes by fully winterising the modern Orange 5, keeping the other modern full susser for summer use only & just swapping wheelsets on the Clockwork & adding/removing the Crud guards as the seasons dictate
I'm starting to like winter biking a bit more, a good set of lights, some proper mud tyres it all adds up to great fun. I don't think that all bikes should be tucked up over winter, there's loads of fun to be had!
Good lights and 'guards make a world of difference, Crud Guard bosses should be standard on UK spec bikes IMHO!
I'm surprised that some so many bikes that claim to be designed for the UK market don't have them, they're so much better than using cable ties?
I have other much less 'worthy' bikes to use when the weather goes bad, I think this year my '6066 will be getting an airing and the X01 with suitable tyres fitted, might even run the 'STP if I get it finished off, good thing about carbon is it doesn't rust
