    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!

    +1 on this. Interestingly I used to get many 'be safe' or 'you must be mad' comments. These have stopped since I had a big wreck coming into work one morning last autumn. I was wiped out by a van...

    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...

    I would seriously question why you need 2.35" tyres unless you commute through a war zone. I commute on a Marin Muirwoods 29er which has 1.6" wide tyres and these are more than adequate. Anything...
