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?
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.
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.
