Fitting guards to my CX bike.

Postby geomickb » Tue Sep 17, 2019 19:05 pm

Hi,

How can I fit mudguards to my Planet X XLA? I want to get out on club road rides over winter and assume I will need some.

Should have a screw fitting on the front of the fork, plus a bridge stay on the rear chain stays along with one a bit higher up.

Planet X say that it has mudguard mounts on the front but needs a clip on the rear.

I'm running 35mm tyres and I can't find any that wide.

I use Tortec P-Clips on the rear of my XLA and use PDW full length guards which work perfectly with my 28mm tyres with room to go bigger.

The guards come in different widths and are expensive but worth it imo.
I think mine are the 37mm. They have a 45mm version.
