Wish I'd bought this set sooner!,
This review is from: SKS Beavertail Front/Rear Clip On Pair Of Mudguards (Sports)
The SKS Beavertail set is the fourth set of mudguards I've tried on my hybrid bike - and now AT LAST I have mudguards that actually do the job they're supposed to!
I ride to work with a backpack on, which obviously sticks out rear-ward. None of the three previous rear mudguards I've tried have prevented road crud from landing on the backpack - but the Beavertail does, completely.
The front mudguard extends down as low as the pedal crank, so it manages to keep crud completely off the downtube and hence none splashing off there onto me.
Fitting was easy and quick. The rear mudguard doesn't interfere with the rear brakes on my bike (unlike a couple of the previous guards I tried) and since it attaches to the frame, the seat post is left free for lights, etc. (On the latter point, I'm not sure why Amazon's product description still refers to a "snap-fit seat tube mount" - it's evident from all the pictures that there simply isn't one on this particular item. I believe SKS do make another model which has this feature, however.)
Finally, I think both mudguards in this set look really good - they certainly enhance the appearance of my bike (see photo).
