mudguards for road bike

Postby Fred Armour » 30 Mar 2009, 8:26pm

Hi everyone,

I have a new giant tcr advanced with a triangle type seat post. Does anyone know if it is possible to get a rear mudguard which will clip on easily to this type of post, preferably carbon, but not necessarily. I don't like the race blades, had them before, and found them to be very fiddly to get set right.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you

as there have been no replies it looks like raceblades; i have them for my airnimal and i don't really find them too fiddly and i am removing and replacing them often. i have put some frame protector sticky stuff under the fixings so perhaps this helps to fit them in the same place each time

I have the race blades and didn't like the look of them when they are mounted. I just put up with having a wet botty now. :lol:
May the wind always be at your rear!
