With fewer and fewer bikes being made with mudguard mounts, and more and more bikes coming with increasingly wide tyres, it’s very likely that you will struggle to find mudguards that will fit this winter.

Thankfully though, the Crud Roadracer Mk3 mudguards could well be the solution to this problem, with enough clearance to fit up to 35mm tyres. That should hopefully be enough to cover off the fast majority of road bikes, with only the odd smattering of gravel bikes having any wider tyres than that.
Like previous models in the Roadracer line, the Mk3 mudguards don’t require any eyelets on your frame. In fact, the Crud Roadracer Mk3 mudguards look to be (by the look of this slightly bizarre explanatory video, at least) even easier to fit than their predecessors, with a Duotech adhesive strip attached to the frame which then holds the mudguard in place, and the only other piece of equipment being a cable tie that is used to attach it to the down tube.
The mudguards will be sold at an RRP of £39.99, although they have already been discounted to £31.49 by Tredz. They should fit any bike with at least 4mm of clearance between the frame and tyre, and also fit on bikes with disc brakes.
