    Rear mudguard had to sit very high to avoid rubbing

Described on the box as ‘quick-fixing mudguards for all road bikes’ (provided they have less than 38mm tyre width and 700c wheels) the Mk3 Roadracer is designed to be versatile and light. 

They’re made almost entirely of plastic and velcro and can be assembled without tools. It's about as close to an ‘ass saver’ as you can get while still actually counting as a fender / mudguard.
