Great but not perfect...

This is an honest review, as I felt many gave them a negative press for noise etc After buying a Sirrus Comp Disc in 2016, I needed some mudguards that would enable me to continue the commute in foul weathers. Since there was limited points of interaction on the carbon fork, it was either these or the rubber-band attachment type - I chose these. The fitment was a protracted affair, (perhaps because i'm meticulous?) and as per the previous review plug and play is optimistic - I had to chop 20mm from the front legs to get the mudguard sitting remotely close to the tyre instead of my foot. Many reviews mention that they're not silent and like to clatter - mine also did to begin with, but after a tightening of the rear top hanger, and doing all of the screws FT (that's really tight - especially the front through-bolt) with loctite on the small screws they are near silent - I genuinely don't even notice them but this is a Sirrus of course. The finish on the aluminium is smart and sits nicely against my matt black bike. My main criticisms would be that I had to add an SKS extension flap to the front to keep my feet dry(er) and that you can't quickly whip them on or off, so they just get left on for the summer. (Also, it seems to need imperial and metric allen keys, plus torx bits to fit them!) Final conclusion would be that they're well worth the time and effort to fit them for an all seasons commuter as they're sturdy and keep me as clean and dry as you'd expect...

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.
