Crud road racers

Sturdy. Cheapest. Easy fixing. To short for club rides . Have to modify. Come on Crud get your act together even the mk 2 are to short but easier to extend at rear. Believe me they are way to short. Lone riding.

Really good

I have them for my commuter - gravel on discs and I just like them. Almost no rubbing, rather easy to install, I simply did not have any problem. The only downside could be for someone who wish for a larger tires than 35C.. recently got a 37C Conti Double fighter on the back as a sole option in a bike shop after my old tire got a huge cut - and this one already rubs. I managed to adjust it and ride with it, but the clearance is really on the limit..

The Good & the Bad

I have been using these for just over a year on a Focus CX bike with canti brakes mostly for commuting. Most of the year I run 28mm 4 seasons but occasionally run 35mm cross tyres both are fine. Now the good thing is positioning the mud guard is super easy to adjust and remove for cleaning (important for a dirty commuter). The bad thing is the velcro no longer grips fully so I also use reusable cable ties the velcro stops it changing position still. On a CX bike or gravel bike these are perfect on a road bike were you have a caliper to hanger the guard off I would not use these . They are designed for bikes with bigger tyres and discs or canti's also the rear guard does not go low enough for group riding in my opinion. To sum up if you have a CX or gravel bike with no mud guard eyelets these are probably your best option. If you have a road bike with calipers look elsewhere.

Good stuff

Not sure what all the bad press is about on here. I have a Cube Attain Disc model and can't get hold of the Cube own made mudguards for some reason. I've had the previous version on a Trek but due to the disc nature they would not fit. I have to admit i was sceptical about whether these would do the job because they looked a bit flimsy but after fitting and yes some cuts/tweaks were needed they appear to work fine - did a ride during an extremely gusty ride and they were performing well. I'm a practical kind of person so enjoyed the challenge of making them customised for my frame, however understand those who might mark this down because they'd want a solution that fits straight out of the box. Given the diverse amount of frame shapes and sizes I think its pretty good. As with all products time will tell if these will last for a long time... but i'll probably be rid of my bike before then :-)

Utterly crap

Could not fit these. Only got to the back wheel. My seat stays are pointed, not round, not flat, on the inside so the pad fits poorly. It got it on and no rub. Fine. Then fitting the rear extension blade was impossible without it rubbing. It touches my front mech mount and the whole thing wiggles. Fitting the screw to hold the two parts together impossible without removing the wheel. Then on again, it rubs, wheel off again, adjust, wheel on, still rubbing. Third time I tried to install the screw with the wheel mounted. Then one of the two plastic flaps that goes under the main blade to hold in it place cracked. Total waste of effort and money. Also, when cutting the attachment to size, the plastic cracked. Design and components are not up to the task. Then image you wish to remove the whole thing for a sunny day out and you have to struggle once again. For the front blade I didn't even bother as the pads would interphere with my speed transmitter on the fork. Just shows how poor the solution is. Finally, the instructions about the the small pads and hairy adhesives to prevent frame rub and keep the blade from rubbing the rim are not explained in details, no idea where to put them until I saw a video. The company haven't even made a video themselves to explain clearly how to install the blades, the web site only has links to users uploading their own rather useless videos. I should have opted for the SKS blades but will give them a try now. I accept that once in a while you waste money buying a that doesn't work as well as expected, even more so with bike stuff and bike clothing, but this time is rather pissed as the product is so poorly designed that I feel robbed. Only consolation is that they are after all relatively cheap compared to many other bike related products.

35mm is Max width

website shows These are for 38mm but they are only designed for 35mm tyres. Only discovered this after fitting them.

Struggled a bit with these

Bought these for a Defy advanced disc to get me through the winter muck. Had to spend quite a bit of time cutting and fettling them to get them on the bike without rubbing or rattling. There wasn't enough clearance for the front one at all so that had to get chopped in half. Now they are on they work fine so that's good. I do worry quite a bit about the sticky stuff that attaches the velcro strip to the bike failing, especially with all the rain that will be soaking it. It already looks like it is losing some of its stickiness. If it fails at speed then there is nothing to stop the mudguard ending up in the wheel and it could be game over. So I am keeping a close eye on it!

Dissapointing

My frame has fairly tight clearances but the promotional videos for the product on youtube gave me confidence it would work for me. The front wouldn't fit without rubbing the tyre, I trimmed the plastic to clear my caliper but the guard was then too flimsy to hold it's own. The rear is better, however again I found the guard too flimsy to hold it's own. I used it for one ride but then removed it as I found the rubbing extremely annoying. I fitted the item in my garage, which is integral and warm, yet the sticky velcro pads failed to stick well, really disappointed by the whole product, great for a bike with bigger clearances I'm sure.

Mudguard Guide

Which mudguards are best for me?

Mudguards come in three main types – full length, clip-on and mountain bike style. Depending on your bike frame you may be able to fit some or all of these types.

Full length mudguards

These traditional looking mudguards are commonly fitted to hybrid and touring bikes. They're great for commuting too as they offer the most protection. The long rear mudguard also keeps the rider behind clean.  

You will need a bike frame with eyelets – usually at the apex on the fork and where you rear wheel fits to the frame (at the dropouts). If your bike doesn't have eyelets (most mountain bikes and road bikes) you'll want can consider clip-on mudguards.

Clip-on mudguards

Clip-on mudguards are super easy to fit to your frame and offer a good amount of coverage for you and your frame. Simple fastenings make fitting and removal quick which is great if you want one set of mudguards for multiple bikes.

You can usually fit clip-on mudguards to road bikes with minimal clearance such as race bikes.

MTB style mudguards

Mostly fitted to mountain bikes, these mudguards are designed to mount to your downtube or fork crown and clamped to the seatpost. They're ideal for any bike with suspension and will fit to almost any frame design. Simple attachment means these guards are quick to fit and remove. These mudguards will offer limited protection compared to the other two types, but they will stop much of the spray.  

How to choose a compatible mudguard?

Check your wheel size and tyre width

When buying a mudguard you'll have to choose one that will fit your wheel size and cover the width of your tyre.

You can find both these figures on the sidewall of your tyre. You will see a combination of digits such as 700x32 or 27.5x2.40. The first digit is your wheel diameter (size) and the second digit is tyre width. Road bikes are measured in millimeters while mountain bikes are measure in inches. 

Check your brake clearance (full length mudguards) 

There should be a 20mm gap between the top of your tyre and the mudguard and about 5mm either side. Most standard road caliper brakes offer up to around 40mm while deep drop (also known as long drop) brakes have arms over 55mm to allow room for mudguards. 

Depending on the thickness of your tyre, your brake arms may have to extend 50mm or over to reach the braking rim. 

What if my bike has suspension?  

You can't bolt a mudguard onto the apex of a suspension fork like you can a rigid one. You'll want to make sure the mudguard doesn't touch your wheel when the fork is fully compressed. 

If you have a full suspension MTB you're main concern isn't likely getting wet and muddy. If you run a dropper post you won't want the mudguard clamp getting in the way, so it's best to avoid having a mudguard.
