    had it put out on whilst in the shop having the cruds put on.
    .Funny story on the cruds.
    Bought them in the shop, guy said easy to fit even after I mentioned I had an Allez ( read on here hard to fit on the Allez) got home, opened the box, looked at the instructions and prompltly threw the bike in the back of the car to get the shop to fit (£5 & another 40 mile round trip)
    Anyway get home with them all perfectly fitted, popped the bike on to the back wheel to wheel into the house and caught the crud under the tyre and snapped the back off the the tailpiece :evil:

    If you look closely you'll see they were taken in different seasons. That's about how long it took me to climb the Tourmalet :D
  • long way to go before my first col. :D
    Was 19 + stone at start of 2010, down to 16.5 but would not think of a col until maybe 14.5 stone

    I disagree.
  • +1
    They do a decent job, add no weight, dont really make the bike look like a Galaxy and they keep the crud off our bits

    If you've a bike with uber tight clearances I'm sorry but I find them a god send. Having used both I find them a noticeable improvement on SKS Raceblades. If they do break and your claim is reasonable the manufacturer will replace the broken parts. Not sure what more you could ask for really. :(
  • after snapping the joining section on the main piece of the rear guard (own fault) i looked at the crud site who only wanted me to send six first class stamps to replace, did not seem too bad to me.
    Quite happy without the rear section though

    Well, this thread started with promise and seems to be getting derailled a fair bit :?
  • too right, my thread my rules, lets not talk about cruds anymore
  • OK, how about some more bike photos to get back on track...

    Ah yes, the famous "I could ride all the way to top no problem, but need to take a photograph" excuse :wink:
    One hell of a climb, I thought Wrynose was way harder than both the Joux Plane and Colombiere. Going to try it again in March.
