    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.

    EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN: CRUD

    I have a pretty standard specialized allez road bike that I use for commuting. My SKS raceblades were needing adjusting every so often so I thought I would try what was advertised as the holy grail of mudguards. I couldn't have been more wrong. As the previous negative review suggests, there is simply not enough clearance and my tyres are a standard 25mm. Horrible Velcro is a cheaply made way to secure them. I have returned to my trusty raceblades by SKS, much easier to adjust and offer proper clearance. I've binned the crud Cruds.

    Recommended.

    I found them fairly easy to fit. Watch the You Tube video first. Yes the rear one is a tad short, but I don't find that they rattle about. On narrow tubing they do protrude. But I think you could trim them to be flush, if you're really fussy.

    Poor

    They're really rubbish I'm afraid. Held on with the special velcro/stickle brick stuff, that means you need to stick these incredibly sticky ugly velcro strips all over your lovely bike. The clearance is way too tight even on a more endurance frame (I had intended them for Supersix but that was never going to happen with 25mm tyres!), as there's not enough clearance and the fact that they're just plastic they wobble and knock/rub the tyres. Not a lot, but enough to kep annoying you. I got so fed up trying to get mine aligned correctly so as not to rub/knock, that I just got fed up and took them off. Then I had to use a hairdryer to remove all the velcro strips from my frame. Bottom line, ugly and rubbish. Oh and the rear is too short to protect your mates Because they've economised by using same parts/guards for front and rear, so the front protects well but the rear not so much. Mk2 were better. Tredz delivered quickly and were the best price though.

    I Can Now Have A Dry Bum

    Instructions were pretty good but they are a right faf to fit. They took me more than an hour to get perfect. They work well as long as it's only water; any mud or grit and it grinds between the mudguard and tyre. Having said that I don't regret buying/fitting them, I have a nice dry botty.
