    Just received my Raceblade Longs and assembled them off bike. Build quality feels incredible, not needed a single tool yet either.

    It's a plastic outer rather than fabric - so I'm hesitant to put holes in it.

    I don't suppose you've got a link or a part number or anything? I ordered some ages ago to do a bag but it was too thick and peeled off. That stuff looks like it would wrap and actually stick to my bag.

    Yeah it was on one of the murderous metal Temple Meads bridges I saw you.

    I saw this being ridden this/last week. Lovely looking bike.

    I've not managed to get my one last long run in for Beachy Head (same weekend as Snowdon), and I've done nowhere near enough hill work. Too late to do anything but maintain now though.

    This is exactly what I wanted to hear.

    When I saw the SKS didn't have anything around the front mech area I was planning to bodge my Cruds somehow anyway. That seems alot simpler than what I had in mind!

    Ta very much.

    I did think about p-clips. It's the seemingly simple removal/refit of the blade part of the Raceblades I like, but these things often work a lot better in theory than reality.

    Also sadly the PDWs are rather rich for my tastes.

    What's the current preferred option for fitting mudguards to road bikes sans mounts?

    Last few winters I've used a set of Crud Road Racers but I've pretty much gone through the plastic now. The SKS Raceblade long looks more substantial, and also looks reasonably removable for the very rare occasion we don't have shitty weather. Worth the extra £8 or so?
