I commute in jeans every day and have no problems at all. Practical and hardwearing. They saved me a lot of road rash when I had a big wreck last year.

havent tried it myself as i live 250 miles away but i've heard its a big success with very few bikes stolen or vandalised. I'd encourage you to give it a try. Enjoy your trip to sunny England!

Going back to the OP's original question. I started commuting on a road bike with 23mm tyres. I do a short commute 5 miles each way. I found it mentally tiring having to dodge every pothole for fear...

+1 on the landscaper rigs. There's a rig which passes me on a regular basis in the morning and it scares the hell out of me. You think the van has passed by, you relax and the trailer damn near wipes...

I have fitted full fenders to my Muirwoods 29er. As long as you have the regular mounting points for fenders it shouldn't be an issue. In my case I fitted an extra spacer about 1/2" long on the...
