My bike as it will be for lejog + toptube bag.
No mudguards? Tricky one. A bit if extra weight and wind resistance but I hate riding when getting soaked by spray off my front wheel. On my last LEJOG I had a few showers here and there and one long wet day up the Welsh, English border. I guess as I'm a slow rider anyway the wind resistance is less of a factor. And when I weigh over 100kg worrying about the weight of mudguards is a bit pointless
When I did a 15 day LEJOG in 2009 we had significant rain on all but the last day. I was definitely glad of full mudguards (& an effective waterproof jacket).
