First post on here, thought this was a reasonable enough way to introduce myself.


- Saracen Galibier 58cm frame, bought from fleabay for £100, reckon it is probably mid 2000's
- Ritchey 130mm stem
- Ambrosio hollowtech copy chainset and BB
- 10 speed Veloce shifters
- Veloce 10 speed derailleur
- Cheapo Ritchey saddle, which is damn nice, actually
- Fulcrum Racing Quattros.
- Schwalbe Durano Plus tyres.
- Crud Road Racer Mk2 mudguards
- Bars date from when I first bought a proper road bike - 2005, but that was a second hand job then, believe they are Deda
- Cinelli Gel bartape.

Gets used for everything, commuting, training, Audaxing. It's the only one I have!

    Welcome to the forum, bike looks great especially for the price paid. How do you get on with the road racer mud guards?

    Thanks, it has evolved over time as things wear out, pretty happy with it at the moment.

    The mudguards are the best £20 I've ever spent on it - they make wet weather riding a pleasure. Yeah, they do go out of alignment fairly easily if knocked, but are equally easy to sort. The normal 'long' rear guard is too flimsy, however, it just gets warped, so I have binned that off and just chucked a short tail on it which comes with the guards. One thing I did think the other day was whether I would be able to fit 25mm+ tyres under them - I have always used 23mm and clearance is pretty tight!
