Does anyone have any experience with these guys? They seem ideal for fixed gear bikes, seeing as they mount on the rear brake bridge. They're real pretty, but I'm just wondering how the wood handles the rain.

fixed that. Heh
The wood handles the rain just fine. It's clear coated so it doesn't soak up water and you could easily wipe off winter slush. They don't offer as much coverage as full fenders but you already know that.
The only concern that I have with these tho, is that the rivets holding the wood in place sometimes get loose. Mainly because the whole thing is held by the tab at the brake bridge and flaps since wood is flexible. It's not really a big deal, i just re-tighten them. But they could've been made tighter IMO.
They are pretty tho. I have many many people pedal up to me and ask about my fenders. But if I have the clearance for it, I would have gotten the full fenders option.
