Look great, but nightmare to fit!

PostedOctober 24, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Looks great
I bought these for my Pinnacle Neon 3 and they look great on the bike, but were quite fiddly and stressful to fit. No washers are supplied and the stays were a little long so needed to be trimmed down so that the mudguards sat in the right place above the tyre. I don't recommend trying to fit these in a hurry!

Don't try to fit to a Trek 1.5

PostedSeptember 24, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
The Trek 1.5 has mounts for mudguards but after an hour of trying to fit these I gave up, took them back to the store and changed to a set of Race Blades which I fitted in under half an hour and they are superb.

Good guard

PostedNovember 8, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight, rattle free, fit frame with tight tolerances
Cons: they're mudguards!
Surprisingly good guards.
A little fiddly to setup, but with a little care and attention these guards are rattle free, lightweight, easy to clean and look as stylish as any mudguard possibly can.
I find the front guard does rub a little on the front tyre, but my winter bike has quite tight tolerances.
I would recommend these to anyone wanting to keep their derrière dry this winter!

keep dry and comfortable!

PostedApril 10, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, slimline, safety features
As the title suggests these mudguards will end the inconvenience of spray from both front and rear wheels which is one less thing to worry about when riding in the rain. They were relatively easy to install with only minor adaptation issues on my old 27 inch wheeled racer but with sks offering essential parts kits to maintain these guards they should last.
Also easy to adjust as I found out last week when a cyclist failed to stop in time and gently rammed me from behind at traffic lights.
