    What mudguards could I use for a Hub geared bike? I want some which can be taken off easy, just in case I get a puncture on the rear and need to take the wheel off.

    I was thinking of the below:

    However im not sure they could be fitted as the brake cable runs down the rear stays of the bike, so the mudguards couldn't be fixed here? I also have a pannier rack on the back
    Any suggestions? If you've got a hub geared bike what have you done?

    Thanks for your help

    It depends on your dropouts and chain tensioning. I have an eccentric BB and vertical dropouts so just normal sks mudguards. My horizontal dropout bike takes the same . Track ends may differ.

    They are horizontal, so normal sks wouldn't work. I'd have to remove them to get the wheel off?

    Hi Rustybucket,

    I've got a 2014 Genesis Day One Alfine 8 and I was lucky enough to find some Portland Design Works Full Metal Fenders on sale.

    They're not cheap but they do look good. Perhaps they're not as easy as some clip on style mudguards to get on and off but they are nice and solid.

    Good luck finding the right mudguards for you.

    Use the SKS plastic mudguard stay push in/out release bits that are meant to go on the front on the back,instead, although the mudguard is still fixed at the brake bridge it's enough to get a wheel in/out with horizontal dropouts.
