Velo Orange 45mm satin-finish mudguards £35

Practical retro style

BikeRadar score 4/5

We’re still waiting for someone to reproduce the classic ribbed Bluemels aluminium mudguards of the 1950s, but these curved profile Velo Orange offerings are the next best thing.

Unfortunately, the stays clout your feet when turning at walking pace, but drilling a hole further up will sort this out.

A honey or black leather mudflap is available (£7.50), and leather washers (£2.50) prevent rattling. All the holes are drilled and the fork crown bracket is attached, so they are easy to install.
