Your winter hack photos

Right, put on a Brummie accent and read this line "This winter, I shall be mainly riding..."

My new(ish) 'winter hack'. Very clean as I have just spent a day fabricating bits to get some guards mounted. Being disc brakes the rear had frame eyes which required bending of the stays to avoid interference, whereas the front had no eyes at all....just need to get a longer bolt for the lower disc mount to ensure enough threads are in contact within the forks and I'm all set.

Got some retro-reflective black tape on order which will be stuck down the rear of the seat stays to aid winter visibility, and another rear light will be added plus an emergency front. Also need to change the tyres to 28mm Four Seasons as the 32mm cross tyres are a bit hairy cornering on wet roads, even if the ride is sublime!

So, let's see what you are all hacking around those filthy lanes on then...!
