Trek 7.3FX Mudguards/Fenders

Postby Grejoh » Tue Dec 10, 2013 10:47 am

Hey people, I am trying to source/find a set of mudguards for my Trek 7.3FX so I can become an All-weather commuter. I tried a set of Bontrager ones last night, and even though they said they would fit a 700x35 tyre, they didnt fit my 700x32 tyres! Seemed to clamp them and nothing I could adjust would get them off the tyre sidewalls! I also have a Topeak Super Tourist rack on the back, so that complicates things just a tiny bit. Should I try a set of the SKS Chromoplastic 700x28-37 Mudguard Set? Or are there other options for me? Any suggestions will be thoughtfully looked at! :-)

SKS P45s are what you want. Had them on my Trek 7.5FX with 32mm Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres and a Super Tourist Rack. No issues. P35s will be too small.

Ended up fitting a pair of Zefal Hybrid VTC 45mm and they did the job perfectly. Thanks for the advice. Now all I have to worry about is the rain from above me, and not below me! :-)
