Took me about 3 hours to get them applied on my Trek 2.5 Alpha, but looking back it would probably take 20-30 minutes tops if I need to do it again. Looks like a lot of parts and things to connect and to make sure everything fits correct at first, but it's actually much easier than it seems. Anyhow, taking caution and doing it slowly the first time to make sure you get it all right is good. The parts are made very cleverly and everything fits great, you might think that the tail parts are a bit flimsy once you've got everything installed, but once you start riding it's clear that there's no problem with that, I mean they are supposed to be super light and super slick, so they will be somewhat flimsy just because of being slim and minimalistic plastic pieces, I guess they could make these in carbon to be more sturdy, but I'm guessing the price tag would be whoppingly higher then as well, all the plastic and rubber parts do seem very high quality. Anyhow, what's most important they do what they are supposed to -- the bike and you stay clean. I use them here in northern Thailand during the rainy season, there's loads of dirt along the wet on the roads when the torrential rainstorms come in and I can still ride my bike strong and forget that I've got the full fenders on.

These are ace. I'm not mechanicly minded but these went on with minimal swearing in about 30 mins. They look tidy, they fit my Scott CR1 pro very nicely indeed. Been out on 3 / 4 rides with them already and no complaints at all.

Ordered these at 7.30 pm and received them at 8.30am the next day which I didn't know was possible til now. The crud road racer mk2 was a tad fiddley to fit but got it perfect on each wheel with my first attempt as I followed the online video tutorial to a tee. They look tidy and keep your bike, back and others behind you clean and dry (if not raining but wet roads)

Excellent product, takes about an hour to fit properly. Lightweight and removable. Highly recommend if you have some practical ability to fit them.

very light and flimsy looking. Fitting without any tools, two rubber bands and two cable ties for the back, two rubber bands and one cable tie for the front.
Looks like they should fall off.
A couple of brush strips to keep central.
Fits in very tight clearance.
Had to pour boiling water over and bend into shape to get the final fit.
250 miles of flooded Surrey roads and pouring rain later and they really are very good,
Stayed in place with no further adjustment. No rubbing, Keep the rain off.
I wish everyone else had them then I could draft.

The mudguards were well priced and arrived in quick time. I fitted them to my bike in about 30minutes. Now they are assembled this time will be cut to about 5 minutes in future. Tested them in the wet and they work just great. I don't think they spoil the lines of the bike either as they are quite low profile. No problems with rattle or rubbing. A great bit of kit.

Very good price. Well packaged and quick dispatch.
Glad I watched video to see the tips and tricks to fitting these.
Wasn't sure how good they would fit but was very satisfied with the outcome.
No wet bottom or legs now especially in the current weather conditions.
Very happy with them, just hope they last the distance.

I was put off mudguards years ago by chrome ones which rattled and weighed a ton. You hardly notice these at all. My friends also appreciate the extra long rear blade. There is a cunning blade at the seat post to protect your front derailleur too.
No wet or muddy strips up my back. They even keep my feet/ankles reasonably well protected and no complaints from anyone behind either!
Well worth the money!

great guards for close clearance road bike. a bit fiddly to get rear wheel spinning without contact, especially with band-on front mech, but once fitted they keep a lot of the muck off. especially round the front mech - the extension cover works well. also longer & wider tails help you keep friends with following riders!.
cable tie on rear mech to seat tube wore through,but easy to repalce in situ.

I bought these for my training bike, good coverage front and bike, and very light. Seems a little fragile but a good solution in terms of fenders for road bikes with little clearance around the tires and no eyelets. The front fender is quite stable when descending. Did tape a piece of thin plastic to extend the rear fender so people behind me are not sprayed in the face.

I bought these fully expecting them to be quite trick to fit. After a quick hit on youtube (highly recommended), the mudguards were quickly and easily installed. Since then I have had several weeks of ryback riding and could not recommend this product more highly. As usual a prompt delivery service helps too.

These are fabulous mudguards and do an excellent job. The extra long tail on the rear mudguard ensures your back (and bum) don't get covered in mud and the riders behind don't get road spray in their mouth. It was only annoying getting the things on but after watching the tutorial it became a breeze. Highly recommended product - especially for this time of the year!

Recently purchased upon a recommendation from a more experienced biking friend. As a complete
newby to biking, I found it really easy to put on my bike. I recommend using the video links on YouTube to preview what you need to do. Now that the weather has finally taken a turn for the worse, I am glad that I have fitted the cruds. Did I also mention that the cruds were also £12cheaper than on any other website, which is reason enough to purchase them!!!!!!!! A very happy newby.

The road racers can be a fiddly to install at first, but they aren't difficult. The problem for me is always getting enough clearance on my rear wheel where I'm using a 28c tyre and being able to tighten the fasteners with my fat fingers.
Once they are on, they work brilliantly. Low profile, but very effective.

A bit fiddly to get on, but once in position they keep everything from flying off the road onto the frame and body - water, mud and whatever else.

If your bike has the necessary clearance these mudguards are superb. Lightweight & close fitting, the front mudguard protects your shoes & face, whilst the rear mudguard not only protects your mates it also keeps your bum & back dry. The clever flared design also shields the front changer from all the water, mud, salt & dirt. It's such pleasant change to get back from a ride and not have to strip down the entire bike to clean off all the muck.
When you're putting in long Winter training miles mudguards can make all the difference to your comfort, if you're keeping dry you're less likely to be feeling cold & tired
The only minus I can think off is they're not very robust; however in the event of breakage replacements parts are easily available

I was sceptical right up until I actually rode out with these on. Yes, they're very tight and when not riding they'll probably still rub a little. But they definitely work, work well and the PBK price is excellent.

Let me just say that putting mudguards on a roadbike feels to me like putting a boiler suit on a beautiful woman. I don't like my the way my bike looks like with "boots" on.
It was with a begrudging heart therefore that after one soggy backside too many as Autumn crept in that I decided my beloved bike was going to have to take the cosmetically gauche step of having mudguards.
My priorities were a) weight and b) not making my bike look like it had become a nerdy librarian type.
Crud Road Racer Mk2 Mudguards seem to fulfill both of those criteria, as well as not costing the earth.
I did my research well, and, even with the trepidation that they were notoriously tricky to fit, I bought them anyway. The chaps at Probikekit packaged it and had them with me very quickly for which I was pleasantly surprised and grateful.
There is an excellent video on YouTube which acts as a tutorial and I would strongly recommend you watch it before fitting. The instructions that come with them might as well as be how to assemble your own lunar lander for all the help they are.
Once watched however, I found assembling the mudguards on the bike very straightforward really. Just take it nice and slowly and be thorough and you will get there. They really will work in very narrow spaces. The carbon forks on my Boardman offer precious little space for mudguards, but I still managed to fit them without cutting or alteration.
Once fitted, you will need to do a bit of fiddling around with them to get the arc right around the wheel, but once you have that and all the ties are tightened they will give you precious little trouble.
They are very light which is good, barely noticeable in fact. They do appear flimsy but at this weight and price what do you expect? Titanium?
They also fit very close to the wheel and hug the wheel's contour very well so the don't actually notice that much as mudguards which is pleasing. So instead of your bike looking like it's wearing a boiler suit, it now looks like the aforementioned librarian with a pair of sexy glasses on which she can take off seductively come the spring and the new season.
All in all, I made the right choice, and it's so nice not to have a soggy backside when inclement weather strikes!

Very good mudguards which can be fitted on bikes with minimal clearance.
These are the only mudguards I can fit on my Scott CR1. They are also very good at keeping the rider, and mechanical components free of muck and grime. They will also be appreciated by the people riding with you as they stop spray flying up into the face of following riders, something may other mudguards fail to do.
Look quite good too.

I was sceptical when I bought them.
I was more sceptical when I fitted them.
Having been out with them though, I'm not sceptical any more.
Yes clearance is minimal (mine still rub slightly off the bike), fitting can be fiddly (but watch the video of Mr. Crud), but they definitely work.
Only downside is getting past the noise when you ride through some crud.
Good product, great price.

I had to cut bits off, as instructed, which was fiddly and should be unnecessary - there are bits that attach to each other, but why not make the ends that might need to be cut attachable and of two different lengths?
The front mud guard constantly impaired the performance of the front wheel, no matter how much I fiddled with it, either slowing the rotation or making a really annoying noise as the bottom of the mudguard flapped back and forth against the wheel. I've now taken it off.
Back wheel is fine, did also need a trim though.
I also had one less set of nut and screw than necessary.

I bought a pair of these to go on my winter training bike. This has an ITM fork and I use 25mm Schwalbe Ultremo Plus tyres. As the clearance under the fork was about 1mm I didn't them and will go back to SKS Raceblades. They do look as if they will fit another bike I have with 23mm tyres.
They were not too fiddly to put together but I am a bit concerned about how long the plastic screw on nut will last.

I have a set of these Crud road racer mudguards fitted to the old bike I rode through last winter.In the spring I bought a new Sabbath Silk Road and it wasn't until a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday club run that the absence of mudguards on the new bike became obvious,passing a field that had been recently plowed and a good amount of the field was on the road,and then up my back .
Fitting the mudguards requires a bit of thought and planning ,but they are very versatile and can be adapted to fit any configuration of road bike,took me about 20 minutes.
Once on they really do keep the crud off both the rider and the bike.
Great spares back up from the Makers who are based in Yorkshire,parts are very reasonable should you break a back section off the rear mudguard as I did on the old bike ,whilst stuffing it into the back of my car .

I bought these as my Ribble Gran Fondo didn't have proper mounts, they just... JUST fit with 23mm tyres, had to make 2 modifications though, had to file out a little notch for the spring on my rear brake, and had to put a little spacer between the front guard and brake zip tie to stop pushing the guard down at the back of the fork, sounds like a lot of work but really wasn't, took 30 mins to fit FIRST time, but after setting them up can fit them in about 2 mins with no trouble at all, that's the good part.
Could be better part is the stays could be a lot stronger and the plastic screws (that one shook lose over a cattle grid) could be metal or stronger.

Well, I've finally bitten the bullet and fitted guards. They're not too fiddly to assemble, in an Ikea-ish sort of way, but quite fiddly to align so that they do not rub. Still not got it quite sorted, as they tend not to stay where you put them after a few miles on UK back roads.
On the plus side, they do work. My first ride with them was in a deluge, so most of me got drenched anyway, but they did keep my seat dry and my back mud-free, which was most definitely an improvement.
