Bike Winterising Advice required
I have a Planet X Ti Sportive that I'm thinking of winterising 'properly' - I currently have an old Bontrager rear mudguard on it but nothing on the front as there are no mounts on the Planet X fork.
Firstly - Crud RoadRacer2s on the fork I have or proper guards and a new fork? I have Cruds on my commuter (2011 Langster) but they are very tight on that bike and rub constantly - worried that this is a 'feature' of the Cruds. This'd obviously be the cheapest option though...
Secondly - if new fork then which would people recommend? Zenith (from Spa), Kenesis DC07, Deda Black Rain (don't like the decals) or some other?
Thirdly - If long drop brakes required at the front, any experience with Tektro 538, Shimano R650, VO Grand Cru or Van Nicholas VNT brakes out there? I'd be replacing SRAM Apex and want to match or better performance and looks.
Finally - which guards? would appreciate advice from anyone who's used the above forks.
