Don't fit an Avail small frame

Fitted the front guard , seemed ok after a bit of bending the central metal portion. Rear really didn't fit as would have fouled the rear mech cable, ended up cutting the end of and drilling a hole so could screw to the frame threaded hole on the seat tube. Quality was ok apart from the poor quality bolts provided to attach supports to the forks. Would not buy again!

Hopeless product

I ignored the reviews and ordered these thinking they we Giant so must be Ok to fit my Defy. How wrong can I be. Poor fit even with standard wheels and 25mm tyres. May fit 23mm but who has them nowadays. Please heed the reviews and avoid, don’t make the same mistake I did !

AVOID!

Not even the right shape/length/fittings to fit an ALUXX Giant Defy. The rear guard is too long, and the front mech cable would be in the way of the fitting anyway. Annoyed that I had to pay for postage to return them too.

Wouldn’t recommend

I decided to ignore some of the negative reviews hoping they would be the best fit for my giant defy 2. Tried fitting the front guard but it rubbed against the tyre, there is no other adjustment on fitting position and didn’t want to start bending the metal bracket away from the tyre as was thinking they need returning. I sent them back, to be fair there is little clearance on the tyre in the frame so have given up withthe idea of fitting guards to the bike.

Wouldn't buy them again.

These are frustrating to say the least. They claim clearance for 28C tyres - I was having clearance issues with 25C. The supports are held in with crazy small grub screws, and no matter how tight they were done up, the slightest knock knocked them out of alignment causing rattling and rubbing. Combine that with constant rubbing around the metal brake area, and the rattle over every small bump, they just cause endless frustration. For the couple of miles at a time that they aren't being problematic, they're very good - close fitting, look good, and keep a decent amount of water off. I've taken mine off, will only be going back on for serious wet weather riding. My advice would be to go for some less close fitting ones with a more robust mounting system.

Fits a 2011 Trek 2.1 road bike

I've been using crud road racer 2's for a couple of years but after my own clumsiness crossing toes with the front wheel standing at traffic lights I smashed the front, again. And then found the rear had also cracked in a couple of places as well. This isn't the first time this has happened so having looked around for alternatives I stopped in at the local trek dealer to ask their advice. They suggested some crud road racer 3's so bought some there and then. But the changes to the design mean it's now impossible to fit them to the front on this particular bike. The giant speed shields were the next candidate and to my great delight they fitted up no problem very little fuss. Having read previous reviews on here I threaded all the tiny grub screws into the fittings before installing the stay guides on to the mudguards. I'm currently running conti gp 4 seasons 23 front and 25 rear on mavic open pro rims and have yet to ride with the guards fitted but all looks well. Soon to be replacing the open pro's with dt Swiss r460's so it will be interesting to see if the extra width on the rims and the change to the tyre profile causes any issues.

These are NOT Alloy/Aluminium

I bought these specifically as they are listed as "unbreakable alloy". note - they are NOT. They are an extruded glass filled nylon type which is rigid and seemingly good but have not yet fitted to see.

Not for Defy 1 Disc

From the description of this product you would think that they would fit all all of the AluXX Defy models, however, they don't fit the Defy 1 Disc models. They look like a well designed and well made product but you need to check that you have the right model of bike to suit these mudguards. In better news, Tredz also supply the Crud Roadracer Mk3 mudguards and they definitely do fit on a Defy 1 Disc !

Not suitable for Giant Rapid Hybrid

Bought these mudguards on recommendation from Tredz that they would fit my Giant Rapid Hybrid with disc brakes. First issue was that there was no fitting instructions but I guess it's pretty logical how they work. Back mudguard went on great with a bit of fine-tuning of the stays. Front guard was a complete nightmare. The stay was far too short to reach from the quick release lever to the mudguard to hold it in place.The placement of the disc brakes made it quite awkward as well. Called Tredz up for more advice and Stephen was great -- called Giant for me and advised on either the SKS Problade or Flinger F35 as suitable replacements. Am waiting for these to be delivered before sending my Speedshields back. Great follow up service from the team at Tredz.
