    Clip on mudguards for 28mm tyres

    Hi all,

    I'm getting a new bike without mudguard mounts, however I wish to commute all year round, so I need mudguards. Are there any clip on full cover mudguards that will fit 28mm tyres, or am I stuck with the mudguards that just cover the top of the wheel?

    Thanks

    Daven

    I would question why you are buying a new bike specifically for year-round commuting which doesn't have the features needed for year round commuting.
    If you are "gettting" rather than "got", I would do a quick about turn, unget the unsuitable machine and pick something designed for the job like Kenesis TK2.

    because the bike is, otherwise, exactly what I want at the price I want. I already commute on a road bike year round and I have clip on mud guards for that! The bike is a proper cross bike, hence the lack of mud guard mounts. Could I use p clips with s carbon frame and forks?

    You got a carbon cross race bike? HTFU wear the stripe , its only an hour race ..

    want mudguards? N+1 get a second more modest bike ..

    race time take the mudguards off it if you need a 2nd pit bike.

    Asking that suggests .. you bought past your level of mechanics.
    Why ?

    Why ?
    Ok number one I don't race I commute
    number 2 I've been doing this for 4 years every day and I think I know what bike suits me better than you
    number 3 I don't have any experience with carbon, hence my question
    number 4 I do most of my own bike work
    number 5 I already have 5 bikes so this is a bike chosen from experience.

    so basically not sure why you have to be so rude instead of just saying 'no that won't work'.

    I guess I'll just use mtb mud guards until I fancy switching to 23mm tyres.

    did you know there are plastic P clips?

    and that you can drill and put aluminum Riv nuts without messing up the paint?

    have you tried SKS Race blades? they attach with rubber straps .

    can you ask the underpaid workers at the bike shop? bring Beer>.

    the race blades only fit up to 23mm tyres I think. didn't know about plastic p clips, that is very useful thanks.

    just raise them a little higher .. Most water tends to spin off the center of the tire, anyhow.

    and they stop at the seat stay and the back of the fork.
    Bon-Trek-trager has something in that niche .



    The primary consumption of P clips is to tie down wiring to a Panel .. ..


    dont you have shops that sell hardware near you ? iron mongers, electrical supply ?

    I'm one to design solutions by rifling thhrough the bins in the shops.

    this site seems to have mostly Online sources , people use for their frame of reference.
    [mostly because they use the computer, while at work, I suspect]

    hit the bike shop on the High Street there you can hold things in your hands and test fit them on your bike..

    crud road racer ones are great, I have a set on my road bike, however they are definitely only suitable for 23mm and smaller tyres due to their design.

    thanks fietsbob I will check out my local hardware shop for something, and also consider the race blades but mounted higher up.

    now will just have to wait for my bike so I can get a good feel for what will fit and what won't.

    thanks for all the help :-)

    edit: after a bit of searching I've found some race blade xls which fit up to 32mm so while not full cover these might be the best option. thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    My older style Crud fenders were perfect on my old bike with 23c tires. But even 25c GP4000 tires were too big.

    The fenders don't quite fit under the brake bridge on my new bike. I get tire rub.
