Mud Guards for Hybrid Bike

Postby edgavin » Thu Nov 08, 2012 09:29 am

Hi,
First post so be gentle!
I have Giant Roam XR3 Disc – 2011 hybrid bike. I am after a set of mudguards as I don’t want to get wet with spray on my commute to work.
The problem is that the bike has disc brakes and not V-brakes meaning there is no way of fitting a mudguard to the rear of the frame.
I have attached a picture to show this.
The front shouldn’t have a problem fitting a guard as there seems to be a small hole in the frame to accommodate a mud guard.
Not sure if I want a mud guard that attaches to the seat post (like Crudcatcher or similar) as a friend had one on his mountain bike and it didn't stop all the spray!
Could you recommend a set of mudguards, preferable black, for my bike?
I hope you can help! :)
Thanks

SKS Raceblades,

They clip on to the stays.
