They were cheaper than when I bought them. I'd do it again. The function, weight (this is weightweenies) of about 210g all in including fittings (if I recall) and the aesthetic on what is a high end bike is in line with the rest of it.

Just finished putting this together as my wet, Shiite weather winter build.


This is very nice.

I cannot recommend these enough. https://www.veloduo.co.uk/products/carb ... 35-40-50mm

I have them on my Vaaru (pictured here: https://www.instagram.com/p/ChFQxTdINgN/ ) and they are completely solid. As in, no noise. And very light.

Thanks.

I considered those mudguards but it was a hassle trying to get them to Ireland. I went with the cheap wiggle own brand guards but they're terrible. The plastic is very thin so the stays can't support their side to side waggle over rough roads.

I'll probably go with Portland Design Works (PDW) in black. Not as light as the carbon veloduo but still a good looking mudguard (if there is such a thing)

The Portland Design ones are good - very solid from what I hear. That's the main thing.

My riding buddy really mocked me for the carbon ones, but admitted after our first ride together that "they do look very cool when riding behind you", which is what it is about really!

Absolutely 🤣 I love their look, unfortunately with everything involved in bringing them to Ireland they're probably 250 euro.

If I can figure out a way - they will be mine.

The PDW ones are lovely.
Having come from a set of raceblades the difference in quality is huge.

Properly solid and look really good ( I think they blend in with the wheels better)

A few things changed since this was taken; ARX stem and Romin chopped out for Fizik substitutes, and the Truvativ cranks/ xcadey PM for a DUB Quarq.
Normally wears a sexy topeak rack too!
Ridden it more than my bessie bike this summer, its just that good!

Well done. Used an Aeroad as winterbike a few years back as well, and it's is absolutely not suited for fitting fenders. But seems you did a good job mounting yours. Do you have a closeup of where the rear fender meets the rear brake?

This is the perfect wintermachine. Inexpensive wear parts like the wheels, and looong fenders. It's a tool that gets the job done, nothing more, I like it :beerchug:
