- Mr Cruds new Road Racer guards.
I'll be investing in some of these next month. I've seen a few reviews and they certainly receive better opinions that Race Blades. Is there any evidence of damage to the paint on the frame at all?Posted 8 years ago
That's not a shabby time either Andy, well done. You'd be on target for a 20mph(ish) average century.
Guys just thought I’d share my experience of Cruds new Road Racer guards, as it is getting wetter more often then this is the time many of you may be starting to look at guards.Posted 8 years ago
I’m not linking the item to our site as that isn’t allowed but put them to a pretty good test yesterday so thought I would share….
Once you open the box, you can see from the packaging that the product has been well thought out, and they are light, very light indeed. Anyway, fitting is pretty simple, no tools at all involved, and after a bit of tweaking there they are fitted, and rub free!
Well the charity ride came but the forecasted weather did not, well, not for a while! Most of the ride was under grey skies, but pleasant, cool but not cold and next to no wind, fine. The last 90 minutes for me however were spent in pretty heavy rain, standing water everywhere! Now I was soaked, no guard was stopping that but as it was not cold it was fine, the guards however were doing their job the stream of water off the front one showing me how much was not getting directed into my face, and my backside was nice and dry also!! One guy on my wheel even commented how nice it was to ride behind someone with a guarded wheel…
The Road Racers remained rattle and rub free throughout, and they are so close fitting they look neat on the bike, very unobtrusive indeed.
I am a self confessed part time roadie, I’m not the fittest or the fastest but I appreciated the guards, they are on the bike and they’re staying!!
Oh yes, 85miles, 4hr30min, not sure if that is fast or slow or what but I’m happy!!
