    SKS secuclips

    I've noticed recently that my front mudguard is moving around more than usual and I'm concerned it will only take so much before it disintegrates. All bolts seem well tightened, so in thinking of a culprit I'm currently looking toward the sacrificial clips at the fork. Do these loosen over...

    Problem installing SKS Full Length Chromoplastic Mudguards

    I've been able to successfully install the front mudguard. But I've encountered a problem with the rear. The mounting part of the bridge / bracket is too short for the mounting hole: Does anyone have any suggestions to solve this problem? Many thanks!

    FREE - two sets of full SKS mudguards

    As above and pictured - free to anyone who can collect from KT10, Esher, Surrey. Used but in good order. One set has lost the rear reflector but neither are broken or split. From memory the black set will fit up to around a 28mm tyre and the silver set maybe 35mm. I'll even clean the mud off...

    SKS Chromoplastic rear loose

    My rear guard has become loose, causing tyre rub. It seems to be loose a the plastic holder attached to the rear brake, I assume this should be tight? Had a quick look and it looks like the plastic holder has slightly worn the part of the guard it holds, resulting in the looseness. Is this...

    SKS Chromoplastics - fitting issues

    Hi, Just wondered if anyone else has fitted these and found it a royal pain in the posterior? After spending an hour last night trying to decipher the rather vague instructions I finally felt confident I mostly understood what I was supposed to do, and set about trying to fit a set to my...

    SKS Raceblade longs on a Giant TCR ?

    After a muddy bum this morning because I took the best bike out on the wet roads but sunny commute, I am resolved to get some clip-on guards. The bike has no mounting points but has brake bridges. Some of the riding is in company. SKS Raceblade longs appear to fit the bill but has anyone got...

    SKS track pump EVA head

    I've been quite happily using an SKS rennkompressor track pump for over 30 years. The only slight drawback I've experienced is that the washers in the push-on brass Presta head wear down over time when used on the threaded valve stems that I like. I've been advised that the EVA head can be...

    SKS Chromatic mudguard spacers/adaptors

    I've got a Dawes 501 hybrid that hasn't been used for a while, the first new bike I ever bought. About seven years ago, I tried to put some SKS mudguards on it, with limited success. The problem was that the frame fixing holes (not the stay fixings) put the guards far too far away from the...

    SKS Raceblade Mudguards (up to 25mm width tyre) £10!

    I recently swapped bikes and now run a 28mm tyre so these no longer fit as they only do up to 25mm. However these are great easy clip-on / clip-off mudguards. They will fit any frame and keep your ass dry. They are so good I just bought the XL version. Loads of life left in these ones and just...

    SKS Chromoplastics 700 x 50mm (black)

    For sale as they don't fit my bike. So unused on the road. I'm 99% sure they are 50mm but cannot seem to login to tredz website to check the order. And bought too long ago to return. £21 posted or £16 collected from Bedford. Any questions just ask.

    Broken SKS mudguards

    Noticed a bit of rattling up front, turned out the front portion of the mudguard (ahead of the brake caliper) has sheared off near the fixing point. The guards seem to have a layer of metal running though so possibly fatigue from vibration loading? How much does this part of the mudguard stop mud?

    SKS Bluemels Reflective Mudguard Set

    I bought these mudguards (black 45mm width) without checking that I had the right attachments on my bike. I have fitted the rear guard, but it has been taken off without being used and without any shortening of the stays. The front guard has not been fitted. I have all the fittings that came...

    SKS Raceblades on disk bikes

    Can you install these fenders on Giant Defy disc or do the brakes get in the way? If you can fit them, do you have to customize them? One reason I considered a Giant Defy Disk isthat I was under the impression since there is no rim brake to get in the way, the Raceblades are easier to install...

    Attaching SKS Mudguards to my Croix de Fer - Quality Control

    Evening all! Tonight I got the bike in the living room and spent an hour installing mudguards to my new bike. The back wasn't too bad, there wasn't much to figure out. At the front though I had to bend the struts around the disc brake calipers; I'm not proud of the quality of this, but it seems...

    SKS Raceblade Experiences?

    Just ordered a pair of these to go on my B'Twin Triban 500SE, as the clearances on that bike are tight for regular guards. I also like the idea of being able to swap them onto the Cube quickly if it's lashing down. But, with quick release comes compromise, apparently; I've read that they can...

    Fitting SKS Mudguards to CAADX 105 Disc (Picture heavy)

    When I was trying to find out which mudguards would fit onto my CAADX Disc there didn't seem to be all that much information out there. So I thought I'd document my experiences fitting some SKS Chromoplastics. First of all, these mudguards are excellent quality and contain nearly all of the...

    SKS RaceBlade Long to CAAD8

    Good morning gents, I'm looking to fit the SKS RaceBlade to my CAAD8 frame, however I have got 25c tyres fitted and as such there is tight clearances between the brake calliper and tyre. Does anyone know if the RaceBlade Long by SKS will fit in this scenario or am I looking at the short SKS...
