- Recommend me some full length mudguards
ir_bandito – I am impressed with your combination of lightweight discs and the heaviest brake calipers invented by man himself.
Do those shimano things work well on that disc? I swapped the ones that came on my Centrum for MX4’s which are not much lighter, but tend to stop me!Posted 4 years agomrmonkfingerMember
Standard answer 🙂 SKS every time, they’re the best. Either the chromoplasts, longboards, or bluemels, all are good.
A bit fiddly to fit nice and tight to the tyres, especially if you want to trim the stays, but once done can be completely forgotten about.
AFAIK longboards are chromoplasts with an exceptionally long front guard, which is a nice-to-have.Posted 4 years ago

Bike was built on a budget. Rotors came up in the classifieds here so I snapped them up. I was after some R515s/CX75s, but they’re pricey. I’ve used R505s before on another bike and I was happy with the performance. I picked up this pair for £17!!! At that price, I’m happy enough with a few more grammes.

Yes. Never, ever had a problem. Bike was built to train for, and ride, the LEL. Many wet training rides in the North Pennines and Scottish Borders and a fair bit of grim weather on the event itself and the brakes were flawless.Posted 4 years agokcalSubscriber
A friend had them (longboards, I suspect) fitted to her new bike.
Not sure what tyres she was running but the combination of full full length ‘guards and her tyres made the clearance to ground very small – I’d have been concerned about something like a placcy bag getting wedged between tyre and guard myself..Posted 4 years ago
