    So hows the progress/finished product going mudguts???

    ...and a couple of pics would be nice. Also interested in the fairing - how does it go redirecting the wind at speed from your helmet? I ask as I notice it doesn't have a forward return (curve profile) and was wondering if its height or profile make a significant difference?

    Cheers Pete.

    Looks terrific and just the right size for the job IMO.

    ..more rocks in the face for me though....followed those bloody things through the trails and spent half my time ducking....
