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).
These have only one fixing bolt which goes through the yoke between the front and rear forks. Really quick and easy to fit.
There is a metal bracket which slides into each mudguard, but I found that although they, sort of, click into place, the front one had some free play which would probably have resulted in an annoying rattle or vibration. Remedy was to bend the metal plate very slightly to create pressure on the mudguard once it was slipped in. Did the same with the back one too, just to make sure. They are both now solid with no play at all. Because there is only a single fixing point they will obviously flex a bit, but being plastic this is to be expected. My tyres are 700 x 40c and the rear mudguard looks easily long enough to catch any upward spray. The front one could maybe have been slightly longer, but they both follow the line of the tyres really well. They also look really good once fitted to the bike. All in all, quite a high quality product at a very reasonable price. Very happy, just wish I'd went for these first!
QUESTION ;.......I regard quick release as quick nick ! Has anyone worked out a way to secure these in order to prevent passing rats removing them ? Although my bike is well locked, the scum recently stole the rubber handlebar grips,only a fiver but they seem to take anything just out of spite.
SIX MONTHS ON.........When riding on anything but the smoothest surface the plastic guard would rattle against the steel fixing bracket. I cut strips from old inner tube and wedged them between plastic and steel so hiding the steel......perfect total silence !
