+1 Zefals were useless. They had a quick clip which if knocked once or twice tended to not hold the guards after that. So I spent the one winter using them held together with tape... :evil:

I now have the SKS chromoplastics mounted on an older steel frame which had eyelets, so was simple to install and use a much more secure mounting system.

Thanks for the input guys. I think i'm going to buy the sks raceblade set, they look easy to mount and dismount. Those bleumels look real descent to, but i don't have extra eyelets on my frontfork.

Well, as the Cervelo P3 allready has a half integrated mudgard in the rear wheel : i extended it with a SKS raceblade to get a nice triathlon winterbike. Since the picture was taken i have closed the gab under the rearbrake by gluing a 2nd section of mudgard onto the SKS, so it is now fully extended and integrated with the seattubecutout.

lol, laughing at reactions above! If you're doing TT-specific training in your race position i think it's a grand idea, assuming you can afford a P3 as a winter machine...

Here’s my ’winter hack’!

A bit OTT, but well cared for and oh so nice to ride !
With the Nutron wheels it weighs 19.1 pounds with the mudguards. I’m not really one for bike maintenance, hence the 280s hubs, ceramic rims, plus all the other bearings are sealed cartridges.

Hope you like it!

Build List

George Longstaff custom built Audax frame. Fully fillet brazed Columbus Life tubing. Clearances for 25mm tyres and mud guards, 3 sets of bottle cage mounts. Tubus Fly rack painted to match (Not fitted on Photo)
Carbon fork with carbon steerer
Sanmarco Era saddle, Selcof carbon post
ITM Pro 260 bars, Sintace F99 stem (Ti bolts). Fizik tape
Record Ergo’s, Chainset, front and rear Mechs, KMC chain
Time RXS carbon pedals
ShimaNO long reach callipers (Oh, how I wish Campag made some!)
32 spoke DT 280s Hubs, Mavic Open Pro CD Ceramic rims. Conti GP 4 Season 25mm tyres (Campag Nutrons for long Audaxes)
Elite Pase carbon cages
Plenty of Ti Bolts.

Here you go Flossie. You have to remove ?action=view&current= and put the whole string between img tags.
