    I have an old ie V-brakes model and I'd like to fit some mudguards that properly cover both wheels as opposed to the mtb type that would appear to offer very little protection. Any pointers? Thanks, Steve

    Hi @SteveParry without knowing what size wheels you have ie 26" or 27"

    these look good as long as you have the mounting eyes if not p clips

    The latest Subways are 27.5"

    Usually SKS chromoplastic guards bolted to eyelets are the best, most effective and durable solution. They come in various sizes.

    I just checked they're 26" tyres 40mm width. There are mudguard eyes too. The Blackburns look good. I'd have to source some nuts and bolts to secure them where the brake callipers would normally be.
