    Let's see how the hold up in the jungle of the bike locker! the bike got banged hard enough today to move my cyclocomputer sensor!

    I think they'll be fun even if they make some sound.

    Putting fenders on a track bicycle ought to carry a mandatory minimum sentence. Just saying.

    Well, I guess acid's off the hook.

    He put them on a single speed commuter.

    I agree, however a bike with fender eyelets, water bottle bosses, and drilled for brakes/cable guides is hardly a track bike.

    No man, the handlebars and tugs make it track bike ... yo!

    I do think that the bike has some shortcomings ... but for the money, it's quite nice.

    I think it'd look better with more conventional aero drop bar levers. And a more, eh, muted color scheme.

    I had a set on my Cannondale- hey work great. My wife has them on her Madone 4.7 too. The Lynskey has proper eyelets, so I went with SKS Longboards.

    One thing to watch for is those little knurled nuts coming loose. I hit them with a coat of clear nail polish after losing one.

    Were you riding with no fenders at all? Even with my big stainless steel fenders, my legs can get mucked up when I go halfway fast on the dirt/gravel sections of my commute.

    Yup.

    And I was told that Mudguards are very unfashionable in England and that I should just ask for a towel to sit on at the pub! by my colleagues when they saw them today

    British winter training bikes , you slowly are re creating that , 50 years late. & in less subtile colors..

    One of my friends/shop manager in the 80s, had a Mercian .. made as such .. rear opening dropout
    with a mud guard mounting hole (dropout outline cut to have abundant room for the hole.)

    rear bridge & fork clearance for a side pull brake,and mudguard eyelet on the front.

    Can we agree that it has sporting pretensions? I mean... Pista bars... track dropouts... do you think its a touring bike? Cyclo-cross? Hmmm. Fender eyelets? Where? Is that why the o.p. is using zip-ties? My Team U.S.A. has water bottle mounts does that make it ok to put fenders on it? I could, this is Portland, they put fenders on carbon Kestrels and commute with them. Doesn't mean its right and it doesn't mean everyone does it. Some things are simply wrong.
