Those look nice, aluminum incl stays help cut some weight too. Looks like you laced up the Brooks saddle.

If you want, contact Topeak and ask them to send you a "piggy back mount" for the pump. It mounts under a bottle cage, which places the pump on the side.

That way, you don't lose a water boss for the pump.

The Brooks is the "antiqued" model that comes laced. It came stock on my 2008 Raleigh One Way.

In Germany I saw a lot of mountain bikes (used for city riding) mounted with those motocross-type fenders which don't even fit very close to the tire. I'd have thought they wouldn't block spray very well but maybe they're a lot better than no fenders.
That is the problem with nice things. I would love to try out a set of wooden rims. There is one company I know of doing wood rims, Ghisallo but they are probably quite expensive (I cannot remember prices). Ghisallo rims on a Renovo frame with Woodys fenders would be so choice.



PDW makes great stuff but I am skeptical of their fenders still just because of the Excalibur which needs some major redesign time to make it more durable and forgiving so it doesn't just crack and split. However a full fender is probably just fine since it has more mounting points other than just on the seat post and you aren't really stressing it with getting on and off.
