Recommend me a new mudguard

Postby enduro2 » Mon May 08, 2017 7:48 pm

Winter is coming up and so is the need for me to look at a rear mud guard for my aero framed Merida Reacto 7000E.

For my old bike I ran Zefal Swan http://www.zefal.com/en/mudguards-road/77-swan-road.html which mounted on the seat post. I loved this guard but can't carry it over to the new bike due to the aero seat post.

Ideally I'm not after one that sit's under my seat as that would mean removing my seat bag where I keep my phone and snacks etc.

Any suggestions on a quality guard that is easily removable and not going to damage my beautiful bike?

You can use with a saddle bag (may have to undo saddle bag but not take it of completely to install/uninstall Ass Saver)

I use sks raceblades on my commuter roadie. The attachments are aero friendly.

I recently got a set of raceblades. I've dummied them up and they seem to fit quite nicely but fortunately I haven't actually needed to use them yet. Seem quite nice for the price though.

Just fitted my new SKS Bluemels mudgaurads to the Kenisis Racelight 4S.

They are damned good mudguards, but they are an absolute PITA fiddly design to get installed and setup right.

I actually put a bit more effort into getting them fitted right this time (compared to others), and as good as they are, the fitting is not the mechanically uninterested...

And now it's stopped raining ... :?

Another vote for the SKS Raceblades. I have the XL version which provides extra coverage. Pretty easy to set up and also remove.

The Aero tubing on the bike is going to make it difficult to fit anything resembling a decent mudguard. The best type is probably going to be something like the SKS Raceblade Pro/Pro XLs, as these are designed to temporarily fit to bikes with aero tubing, and do not use the seatpost as part of the mounting
