Product Description

The Road Racer ultra-light mudguard is now tougher with extended coverage
Innovative fitting system allows the Road Racer to be fitted on bikes with exceptionally close clearance where traditional mudguards simply won't go
Incredibly flexible plastic blade and breakaway fittings prevent a wheel locking should a foreign object get caught between the mudguard and the wheel or frame
In-built and replaceable pile brushes allow the guard to 'hover' close to the tyre without rubbing, and negate the need for tough, heavy fittings and keeps the mudguard guard central over the wheel
Minimalist design looks good on even the most high end road bikes
Made in the U.K.

I've been living with some short mudguards for a couple of seasons now, but decided to give these a go for this winter, having seen a few other riders using them. I've been using them for six weeks now, and they seem to work well, but there is room for improvement. I fitted these to a 2007 Specialized Roubaix Elite.

They are made from black flexible plastic and arrive in various sections which you screw together to fit your bike size, style and available clearances. So far so good. The instructions aren't the greatest but point out the key aspects you need to achieve the desired result. The fixings are a combination of rubber bands, reusable tie-wraps and counter-sunk bolts with a X-head drive and knurled nuts both of which are made of plastic.

I've ridden with a few people who have used these and they often wobble like mad and rub the tyre continuously. Keen not to have this feature, since it would drive me up the wall I wanted to get the installation spot on. After a bit of trial and error I finally got there, but be patient.

The stays are fitted with the rubber bands, protect the frame with some good thick tape. The instructions recommend using 2 bands per stay, I done this and wrapped the bands round 3 times each to get a really tight fit. I found the best place was to fit the stays as far down the frame/forks as possible to give better support. Using the tie-wraps around the brakes and near the front mech is easy. I had to cut the rear mudguard to get a good fit near the bottom bracket area.

Here's the biggest issue, the nuts and bolts for the stays. Since they are made of plastic, they are SO EASY to strip the threads. There is a warning in the instructions, but really there is no excuse to use such rubbish pieces of kit.

These were fine whilst they lasted, keeping me dry for a few rides.

The problem is that they're flimsy rubbish!

I'd read a few reviews saying that these snap easily, but I thought that it was just people being careless.

I was out riding and rode over a small twig (unavoidable as a pothole was the alternative) and although it snapped, it also ripped the mud front guard with a massive cracking noise!

It was then a pain to get the mud guards off mid ride to throw them away, as they're cable tied around the brake calliper!

There is absolutely no way that I would purchase these again, and am now looking at something like the SKS Race Blades as an alternative.

Great idea in theory - lightweight, slim line, great coverage and easy to assemble - however, highly disappointing in practice.

This is my second set, the first, bought around the time when Crud were offering free replacement parts (great idea, though likely used and abused by those acquiring entire new sets of mudguards for free) so when the odd little piece snapped, broke or got lost it wasn't such a problem - send some stamps to Crud with a cover letter explaining what piece you needed and then they'd sent it through to you for free. Great then - not now.

That first set was attached to a bike with inadequate locks on it in a high-crime area which was duly stolen - my fault.

I decided to give these guards another shot when I got a new bike. Fitted them in 10 minutes, no rubbing, barely visible and provide great protection to you and anyone following you from spray. That's where the positives end. These guards are so flimsy, fragile and brittle that even the slightest knock will break them.

Previously, I had them fitted to a road bike and they were used 2-3 times a week for training, so their exposure to anything other than long stretches of open road was minimal - in and out of a garage with little manoeuvring required. Now, they're fitted to a hybrid commuter bike used every day (Boardman Hybrid) and they are absolutely NOT up to that task. Whether it's locking the bike to a stand, moving through doors and carrying the bike up/down stairs, the rear guard always manages to get bumped or knocked and then subsequently snaps off due to the lack of structural support holding the rear of the guard. In 1 week...

I brought the mudguards after reviewing the product on the web. Once fitted, they do a great job of protecting my road bike. The reviews that I viewed suggested that fitting the mudguards was a trivial exercise but it took me about two hours of fitting, refitting and fiddling around to get an acceptable fit where the guards weren't rubbing on the wheel. The instructions that came with the kit were not good and I had lots of bit left over. I guess the extra parts were for other types of bike.

Overall, I'm happy with the mudguards and would recommend them, my bike is staying much cleaner. I will be removing them once the weather gets drier as they don't really add to the visual appeal of the bike.

The advantage of this system is the guards are light and can be mounted without lugs - which most modern (racing) bikes no longer have. And to be clear, mud-guards are pretty essential for cycling in the UK unless you are choosy about the days you head out! (The upward spray from the road is just as wet and annoying as any rain falling from above.)

The new 2010/11 version has longer extensions - personally I don't find them necessary (although anyone cycling behind me might think otherwise!), but the option is there if wanted.

The downsides of this system are:
* A fiddle to get on and off. No special tools are needed, but patience will come in handy. Can be done in about 10 minutes with practice. I use rubber bands instead of tie-wraps to secure to brake posts - although the tie-wraps can be removed without cutting, in practice I found it impossible to release them.
* Depending on your bike, there is not much space between the frame and the wheel. I have a Trek Madone, and I can fit these with a 25mm tyre but not a 28mm tyre. Carbon racing bikes were not designed with mud-guards in mind!
* It will take some adjustment to ensure the guards are not rubbing on the tyre - in fact small `fur' stickers will contact on the rims to help keep the guards in place without causing too much friction. Once you have loaded and unloaded your bike from the car, chances are all that careful alignment will be gone and the setup will need adjustment again. And once you are off, it is hard to say if the friction pads are working as they should...
* And because of that, and to properly wash the bike, I tend to remove the guards when I can (which I never do on my Galaxy).

So if you have a racing bike without lugs for guards, and you occasionally venture out into the wet (It is only water after all!), then I'd say these are OK, provided you dedicate some time to get them on and off.
