    Specialized Plug & Play Fenders 2

    The 'Plug & Play' part of the product name implies that these mudguards might be quick and easy to fit, but this is certainly not the case. For the price I think they could have been designed better. For example if you want to plug the ends of the support rods directly into the slots on the drop-outs (rather than used the adapters that may or may not have been supplied with you bike) you will need to trim the rod lengths very carefully. I did this for the front but decided not to bother on the back so used the traditional adapters instead. On my Specialize Diverge it was necessary to drill a hole in the rear fender for the downfacing mounting point in the rear stay bridge, the position of which is critical. It took me about 4 hours to fit them, I needed a star key for the grub screws but I have ordered replacements for because I'm not confident they will hold. The replacements will be allen key headed and conical ended for a more secure grip on the stay rod ends.However when finally fitted the fenders do look good and appear to be quite secure, but I have not actually road tested them yet but they appear to cover the tyres well and do not rattle when the bike is dropped, but I anticipate I may have to insert some rubber where the fender touches the back of the saddle tube. In summary, could be better designed, but better than any alternatives I was able to find. I would have been nice if Specialized offered the option of plastic rather than aluminium because I anticipate the metal fenders could get dented or buckled. A good plastic might stand up to abuse better.
