What mudguards for 700x35c Cube X ?

Postby bilabonic » Thu Dec 13, 2012 07:47 am

Hi

Just purchased a Cube X Disc and looking for set of mudguards for the next few months (or all year...lol).

I 'think' it comes with 32/35mm tyres but not certain, but i probably will be fitting a set of 28mm Gatorskins anyway (and loose the lovely blue rim on tyre :( )

It has mounting holes and was considering these

Or is there anything else easier/less obtrusive ??

They are a good Guard, but you will struggle to fit them over 28's, they barely cover the 25 gatorskins that I have,

have you considered Raceblades?

Ok,

If you are going to be fitting wider tyres then use the XL model - which fit tyres from 25-32

Hi,

How did you get on in finding some guards? I have just taken delivery of the same bike and was wondering the same.

Thanks
