i too have a partial off road commute.
i wear overshorts/trousers most of the time to protect my riding gear from mud and prevent wet arse syndrome. whip em off in the car park if really bad.
end up clean enough to be a desk jockey. i do get laughed at on really wet days but those are the most driftastic fun. crashed this morning through overcommitment/sludge over hardpack – was extra muddy on arrival.Posted 5 years agoThe BeardMember
I commute 13 miles on very quiet rural roads. Only real traffic is farm traffic on a lot of it so the roads are in a right state. Broken up, pot holed, filthy and frequently flooded. I use my CX with full guards. It’s taken a hell of a beating, drivetrain has pretty much had it. Jockey wheels seized on the way home last night! I’m considering SS or getting something hub geared. This winter will kill the current bike!Posted 5 years agoavdave2Member

I’m just about to change the chainring, sprocket and chain on my hub geared bike. They’ve been on for 4 years of all year round off round commuting, have very rarely been cleaned and the chain just gets whatever oil is lying around put on it. That’s mostly been Toyota gear box oil.Posted 5 years ago
