Popped into Tokyofixed today and they didn't have any in stock, have emailed Freshtripe but no reply as of yet, and given the prices previously stated...are they (FT) taking the piss?!

Any idea of someone in the UK who would make custom/bespoke fenders at all?

Don't know of anyone. We don't seem to have much choice when it comes to non-plastic mudguards.

I was just reaching the same conclusion. My SKS ones have snapped and a new set is £30 plus p+p, or I can get the Gilles ones for what seems around £40 plus p+p. No brainer really.

Where are you getting yours from and how much if you don't mind me asking?

£44.18 from Practical Cycles or £46.21 direct from Gilles Berthoud. Unfortunately PC don't seem to have them in the size I want (50mm long), still may be worth emailing them. Much easier to get them from a UK store that speaks english.
