Could anyone recommend any mudguards that would fit on a Btwin Triban 3 please?

Bought some sks commuter ones but had to return them because the bolts and everything it came with didn't seem to match up with my bike.

Seen some clip on racer ones from sks but need advice before I go spending again

Thanks

    I fitted SKS Chromoplastic (Narrow). Perfect with the 23mm tyres but a tight fit.

    I have them on everyday as I use the T3 as a communter bike.

    Follow this video to the letter and they will fit perfectly

    chromoplastics do not fit with 25mm tyres, i fitted the sks race blade xl mudguards and they are fine with plenty of clearance.

    Spot on. only go for the chrmoplastic if you have 23mm tyres. I have them and they fit nice and snug. But I agree, a wider tyre could easily lead to fitting issue.
