- Crud Road Racer Mk2 on a cross bike?
Any one tried them on 32mm tyres?Posted 5 years ago
Road CC say they are a bit fragile. I’ll mostly be using them on tow paths and Sustrans routes, so they are just to keep water off me really, but I wouldn’t want something that breaks if I do get it packed with mud.
If you have them already the go for it.Posted 5 years ago
I wouldn’t choose them over the sks ones.
Biggest they’ll cover is 25mm & you need a caliper to attach them too.
If you’re looking for guards that’ll attach to a frame without mounts, try Axiom axle runners.Posted 5 years ago
I couldn’t make them clear 25mn, had to put 23s back on. Even then the slightest thing on the tyre and they’re grinding away.
Wiggle have the zefal croozer/swan pack for under a tenner. They’re like a thinner version of most MTB guards – I got a set for when I inevitably get fed up with the roadracers.Posted 5 years ago
Roadracers worked fine on my road bike with 28s
Planet X are doing some Vavert guards for about £13. Look very good – planning on picking up a setPosted 5 years ago
The set I had fell apart. The heads on the little plastic screw things seem to break off very easily.Posted 5 years ago
I can’t get mine to fit 25mm Aksiums without letting some air out so clearance must be in thou.Posted 5 years ago
I use the Zefals above. They are great although the rubber straps perish quickly (I use the rubber bands from a crud guard). Do a decent job of keeping me dry although not much use in a group as guy behind gets soaked from rear wheel !Posted 5 years ago
