    Just be patient as they are quite fiddly and are known to rub. There are many threads on mudguards, but I think the 2 things I would take away are:

    Make sure your wheels are perfectly trued or they will rub as they wobble
    Be very patient when fitting them to make sure you get it right, or they will rub

    Also you may have to adjust them if you bash a pothole, hard!
    All in all, a great purchase and I would defo by them again.

    I'm sure now you will have someone come along singing the virtues of SKS raceguards. I am no expert on these guards or your bike, but if you have specific mounting eyelets, then SKS may be a better bet
  • Thanks for the info much appreciated will do some research on cruds dont think my bike has the eyelets,been out tonight in the rain wasnt too bad,brakes were scraping a bit tho
