Anyone have any experience with the Axiom paceline fenders. I am thinking of ordering a set to see if I can make them work on a caad 9 frame. Any thoughts?

Put them on my Specialized Sequoia with 700x25c wheels. Had to cut down the stays and re-thread the ends because the stock length was too long. Gives me good all-condition riding with limited weight increase. I also like the reflective banding along their radial axis. I got them soon after their product launch from a UK bikeshop when they were unavailable in the US.
Another mod I made was that I zip-tied the rear to the frame rather than bolting, because I heard that the plastic would not stand up to a bolt long term. They've lasted two years without problem so far. No vibration or rattles.
One aspect I don't like is the flexible mudflap portion of the fender is tough to clean. The hardplastic fender cleans up real well, but the flexible mudflaps stain. Not too big a deal though.
