I have used Race Blades for the last couple of years and they are fine, just clean them regularly and they usually last.
Hey Robsbc is that the basic Tarmac? Would there be any room for full mudguards or would RaceBlades be the only option? Looks good for winter!
It's the 2008 Tarmc Elite which I bought through my work who are doing the ride 2 work scheme. So will effectively cost me just over half the price around £700.
I think raceblades would be the only option.

Wow, this is one of the nicest litespeeds I have ever seen. Gorgeous bike!
Love snowflake too, something nice about a clean frame like that.
And I like the Salsa too, they have awesome paint/decal jobs.
I'm sure my all-chrome underneath the paint Columbus SLX-framed junkbike would be a candidate. The frame alone is so ridiculously heavy that I think it comes to about 7 or 8lbs in size 54cm. I have refused to build it up, so it's hanging on my shed wall as a reminder of what I used to race on a long time ago.
Currently it's on the shed wall while I ride my 'cheap' Pinarello, exactly the same as the one shown on P1. I did get rid of the Most crankset though as I couldn't resist Dura Ace, and downgraded the wheels to some Mavic Cosmos (easily replaceable bearings, bombroof, heavy) with 28mm tyres (ditto), the better to enjoy the winter commute.
Trust me it has a guard on the rear right now. I don't like it when my behind and hamstrings are getting wet and cold.
and a decent side shot
