white mudguards

Postby RJS » 12 Apr 2020, 2:38pm

Can you buy white plastic mudguards? I'd like to replace the ones on Mrs RJSs' Raleigh Pioneer Venture. Ideally for tyres 700x28 to 700x35. Thanks.
Cheers, Rob.

SKS/Bluemels seem to sell new ones.

I think 28" is what fits around a 700C and you would have to work out if 53mm is too wide.

In theory SKS/Blumel ones are available in 43mm which might be a better fit if you can find them.

An alternative could be to go for silver where there is much more availability in the 42 - 45mm range of widths.

spa cycles had a box of them without fittings dirt cheap. You would have to ring them to check fit

SKS used to do longboards in white. However they don't seem to exist any more. Maybe you will get lucky and find some old stock somewhere?

cheers
