I'll start by saying that the only other fender I've tried was one of those seatpost-fastened units...
I use these during the winter for my (conventional) road bike. No particular problem with clearances using 23mm tires. It is a bit fussy to set up, and the plastic can be a bit frustrating when you're trying to tweak the position, but they do work. There is some minor noise associated with the brush-type standoffs and with the interaction of water/crud with the fenders themselves. But these represent a great improvement over their absence.
I have the Mk1 model, and think the extended design of the Mk2 should be a real improvement. I extend the front of my Mk1 rear using electrical tape between the leading edge of the fender and the back of my seat tube. Not slick, but effective for stability and a little extra coverage.
These are really good for those after the snow storm days in New York City, they keep my back dry, and they fit kinda snug on my 28c winter tires but the snug look is niceReport this review
Overall I've been quite satisfied with these guards; they fit my race bike (the only option I've found) and do a good job keeping the water and road grime off. My only complaint is that the fit is SO tight, whenever I pick-up any sand or dirt it rubs against the guard and can be a bit noisy, and occasionally rub the tires/wheels even when dry and clean. Again though, this only seems to make noise and doesn't affect the performance - still better than any other option I've found.Report this review
Excellent, easy-fit and good-value option for road bikes with tight clearance. Fit a pair of these, and you'll keep the worse of the muck off all winter long.Report this review
