Hi Guys
I’m new on here, I bought and returned numerous mudguards from Halfords for the Boardman adv 8.9, none of the Halfords branches can find some that fit.

Does anyone own this bike who could recommend some please ? Any pics of them fitted would be fantastic

Thanks in anticipation

Hi
Thanks for the suggestion I’ve called boardman twice and they can’t help ( what they suggested first time doesn’t fit)

Odd when they claim mudguard ready

I’ve got a 2014 Boardman CX Team so not the same bike but SKS commuters fitted mine (45mm version on 32mm tyres)

The 8.9 has the same mudguard mounts as the silver and red CX team (halfway up for front fork). You want to be looking for a single stay set of mudguards such as SKS commuter or SKS edge or SKS bluemels Primus.

Raceblades (possibly XLs) might fit, although they're not full mudguards, if that's what you're looking for.
Thanks I’ll look them up

Is the issue because the front forks on the boardman? I've a Boardman URB 8.9 and have just got Halfords to fit SKS guards (can't remember EXACTLY what ones) and they fit ok. I say ok, as the fit isn't perfect but I put that more down to the guy fitting and not the guards.

Only just seen this. I owned a Adv 8.9 until recently (great bike) and I had full length mudguards fitted from new (by Halfords) they were certainly SKS, either ‘longboard’ or ‘blumels’ sorry cannot remember.

I recently bought a Boardman ADV 8.9e, and have fitted a set of 700 x 45 SKS Commuter Mudguards with Mudflaps (from Tredz: product ID 69733) to mine.

They fit, and the only bodging I had to do was to loop a small zip-tie through the holes on the rear guard where it's supposed to screw into the seat tube (as there's no screw point there on the Bordman), and then put a large zip-tie through that small loop to go round the seat tube and hold the guard tightly against it to stop it rattling. (I attached Lizard Skins frame protectors to the contact-points beforehand so the guard and zip-ties won't slowly rub away the paintwork).

Oh, and I found I was a couple of screws short to attach the arms to the frame - but luckily the screws which attach SPD-SL cleats to your shoes are the same size, and I had lots of them kicking around!
