I got myself a new Giant SCR 2 about a week ago (it's my first road bike, but that's a different matter). Seeing as I live in Manchester most of the time, and it's only dry there for about 4 days a year, I wanted to fit some mudguards to it (part of the reason I chose the scr is 'cos it would take mudguards). Anyhow, I just got a set of SKS chromoplastics from wiggle today, and I've been trying to fit them. The bolts that came with them didn't seem to fit the eyelets on the fork properly or something, and being both stubborn and stupid, I forced them with the effect of stripping the thread, and actually getting half a bolt snapped off and stuck in. So, after that essay - three questions really: 1. I thought that the thread would be standard, and the bolts should fit properly. Am I wrong, or are the eyelets on my bike just rubbish? 2. How do I get the half bolt out? 3. Once I've done that, how do I manage to actually attach these things (short of buying a set of clip on mudguards)? Cheers in advance.
