    Hello there,

    I have a brand new Carrera Subway 8 that fell over the other day, breaking one of the little black plastic clips that holds the mudguard onto the front forks. Halfords are unable to order them individually, and don't have any as spares. I've asked at independent cycle shops, and they reckon they're not exclusive to Carrera, but get asked for them quite often.

    Does anyone know anywhere online where I can order them? They look like this:

    My mudguard is brand new, and otherwise undamaged - finding one of these clips will save me having to spend more money buying another mudguard (that won't match the colours of my new bike).

    Anyone able to help?

    go to a peoper LBS and pout a bit, my lot changed all the ancient fittings on my old bike's mudguards without a word when there were only do a few minor fixes

    ten years of bent paper clips, bits of garden wire and tape replaced by gleaming practical well designed clips

    they'll have a box of a thousand out the back

    Thanks for your tips everyone. I've sent a private message to Spandex, thanks.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what does LBS stand for? ;)
