Just got these today.. Pearl Izumi P.R.O. shoes. I got them on sale for $80 at bikenashbar. These are my first shoes that hae a carbon sole and i have to say, they are really stiff and comfortable.

SKS Race Blades. Mounted in like 5 minutes (I'm methodical), worked fantastically. The bike is still a mess, but it kept me dry (although gravel covered).

Definitely not using rain as an excuse this year.

How do they work with aero forks? My aero fork has much wider legs, the only reason that's kept me from getting them so far.

+1... Just got those too. I usually ride in the rain (when it's warm), so these are going to be nice to have.

I was all set to get fenders, until I came across reviews similar to this one. I suppose if I was wearing more expensive gear I might consider it. Until then, I don't care if I'm wet, I just don't wanna have to spend 45 min washing my bike when i get home. *sigh*

I have those, not an aero fork, but because of the shape of it or how the rake works or something the front fender won't work.

They come with adapters that go on the front fender mount for aero forks.

These things...

45 minutes? You're way too into your bike...

If you want to do a rain ride and not wash your bike when you're done: Buy a touring bike and put permanent fenders on there. Adjust them well, size them a big large.
