Mudguards, or Fenders, are for many cyclists out there a staple part of winter cycling. The thought of riding along and getting your precious bike covered in grime is a nightmare isn’t it. So let’s have a look at the choices out there for you and how to fit all types of mudguards to your road bike.

When it comes to mudguard choice you need to consider a couple of things, firstly, how much coverage and protection you require from the guards, from the simple ass saver to the total coverage full-on mudguards . Secondly, the clearance and fitting options that you have available on the bike. Not all bikes will work with all mudguards.
Depending on the guards you’ve gone for, will depend on the level of difficulty when it comes to fitting. Nothing is particularly troublesome really as long as you either read the instructions or look at things logically.
What I would recommend is using a workstand as that way you can check that the tyres are clearing the mudguards as well as any brackets sufficiently.
