Cycling Plus review
'Most high-performance bikes of the past decade have had no mudguard provision, and those of us who use our race bikes all year round have only had a couple of options: either fit SKS's clever but minimal Race Blades, or 'man up' and deal with a wet arse and dirty face from September to March.
Now the Roadracer has stepped into the breach. These are designed to fit simply and as close as possible to your race machine so that they not only work at their optimum but also appear not to be there at all.
fitting is simple and relatively quick; they certainly take less time to fit than SKS's market leading quick-fit system for bikes with no eyelets. They're also flexible so you can bend them into a shape that won't interfere with the wheel spinning below.
The thumbscrew fittings are easy to adjust but the reusable zip-ties that fit behind the brake on the bolts feel somewhat underdeveloped. Noise and movement is effectively dampened by stick-on brush pads on the stay tops.
The use of super flexi-plastic and quick-release stays mean these won't catch or stick and force the wheel to stop, and Crud will send replacement components if you put this safety feature into action.
When you need a mudguard to work, they do a superb job. On wet and rainy rides we have returned remarkably stripe-free, front and rear.'

|I fitted these to my Le Monde Etape. They were a bit of a fiddle to fit but, once on, they were great . . . for a while. However they are very delicate and when I caught the front one with the toe of my cycle shoe the guard snapped. Also, I was using them during the winter when there was a lot of grit on the roads. The grit built up on the inside of the guard and, with the wheel rubbing against the grit up, the rear guard was sanded right through. Perhaps the fit was too tight but a cycle shop I went to re a separate problem said thay were fitted OK and was surprised that they had disintegrated!! So, they are very neat but I get something more robust next time - just suffering wet backside at the moment.|
