SKS raceblades here, mudflaps included. They seem to keep my feet reasonably dry but I can't compare them to full sized fenders because I've never used full fenders.

For antifungal stuff, I find the spray-alcohol or spray-powder stuff works best. The lotion-creme stuff makes it worse.

No, YOU can walk, I will continue to ride up the hill via the sidewalk. I don't terrorize pedestrians and don't feed the hate. Most of this is a matter of attitude and common sense, not rules.

The Costco in Springfield VA has them for $20. I bought two. They are fairly thin but should make a nice layer between a jersey and a jacket.
