OldnSlow2,

Did they have fenders? I sometimes use SKS full coverage fenders on my "winter" cross bike. I've had no problems with them. Widely available online. Be aware that at speed, there is enough splash and spray that shoes still get wet over time, even with the addition of a pretty big mudflap. I formed one out of a black (gotta match) plastic motor oil jug. It's roughly the size and shape of the business end of a flyswatter.
