...are there any on the market?

I hate plastic and although i would like to put guards on this winter I can't bring myself to soil my lovely hardy commuter with wobbly plastic crap.

Its a Kaffenback with cantilevers fitted so has loads of clearance.

Thanks in advance..

Have a search for Salmon guards. A pain to fit apparently but very good and good for bikes without much clearance

Plastic is a good material for mudguards. I had some Salmon mudguards once. They were a pain in the arse.
yep and I wouldn't describe SKS guards as "wobbly plastic crap". They're very good. Much better option than Salmons

Well I had some SKS Raceblades on a different bike and couldn't get used to them at all, a strong gust of wind and they were all over the place.

I take it the SKS full guards are better then?

Mind you I do like those Honjos..

They're excellent. Our household has them on lots of bikes. They last for years, look smart for a good few, and have never given any problems.

Raceblades are mudguards for bikes that aren't supposed to have mudguards. You can't really expect them to be much good.
