Mudguards/Fenders - which would you choose?
I couldn't decide whether to stick this in commuting or utility, so it ended up here - sorry if it is the wrong place.
I am trying to decide between 3 different sets of mudguards, but none are available in an LBS so I can only go by what I can find.
I am considering either
KF Blister ATB Mudguards (20" x 60mm)
Zefal Paragon MTB (20" x 50mm)
SKS Mini Mudguards Wide (20" x 60mm?)
The SKS and the KF Blister are the widest, but the SKS are hard to come by and are expensive. The Zefal Paragon and the KF Blister appear to have a larger wrap round for the rear wheel.
I'm currently running 2.1" (54mm) tyres, and could probably get away with the Zefal Paragon 50mm. And from the photo's they look nicer than the KF BLister, and have mudflaps.
Which would you choose, or do you have any experience with any of these? Especially interested in the KF Blister and th Zefal Paragon.
