Mudguard Sets Guide

 

Mudguard sets guide

Mudguards help keep you warm and dry in the wetter months while also protecting your bike from mud, grit and spray. A mudguard set will include both front and rear mudguards.

This can dramatically cut down any maintenance needed to your bike through the winter. For commuters they are essential, road cyclists will enjoy the dry, comfortable feeling while not spraying any friends behind, and mountain bikers will cut down spray and mud to the face, eyes and back. Warm and dry cycling is simply more enjoyable, meaning you can ride longer and more often through the winter.

What to look for

For commuters, road riders and general cyclists the first thing to look for are eyelets or attachment points on your frame and fork. Eyelets are usually near the dropouts of the frame and fork, though sometimes on some newer bikes they can be a little higher and tucked away inside or on the back of the tube. A central mounting point will also be needed in the fork bridge along with the seat stays and chainstays.

What size?

The size of the mudguard needed for your bike will depend on your wheel size, and tyre size. Almost all tyres will show a series of numbers written on the sidewall of the tyre. MTB tyres tend to use inches, while road tyres use a different measurement system based on mm.

For example, an MTB tyre might say 27.5 x 2.40, while a road tyre might say 700 x 23. The first number is the wheel size, the second is the width of the tyre (inches for MTB and mm for road). The mudguard must be a little wider than your tyre so it does not rub. Full-length mudguards will also need enough clearance in the frame and forks. For example, a 32c wide road tyre is 32mm wide, so a mudguard that is 35mm wide would be ideal.

Full-length mudguards

If your bike does have eyelets then full-length mudguards can be used, these offer the best protection for bike and rider from the elements. They do take a little longer to fit as they are so robust. Some longer types have additional mud flaps and reflectors built in.

To find the right size, simply select the option that covers your wheel size and tyre width.

Road Clip-on mudguards

Road and hybrid bikes with no eyelets for mudguards will use a clip-on type. These simply strap around the fork leg and rear stay to offer a very good amount of protection depending on the length of the mudguard.

Some have rubber straps to wrap around the frame and fork, while others will use zip ties or velcro straps. Clearances can often be extremely tight between tyre and frame so these mudguards can have a small gap that gives room for the frame in the mudguard blade.

MTB Clip-on mudguards

Mountain bikers can keep riding through the worst of the winter weather with fork arch mounted mudguards and rear mudguards mounted to either the chainstays or seatpost. With sizes working well with 29ers and rear chainstay mounted guards pose no issue with dropper seat posts.

They might not be the most glamorous of accessories but staying dry will keep you warm, meaning you can stay out longer and ride more often. Being able to keep riding through the winter will keep skill and fitness on point for when the trails and weather start to dry. Fitting with zip ties they are strong and stay in place with minimal fuss.
