Need a set of mudguards for my giant defy 0

Torn between which ones to buy??

23mm tyres

Any advice??

    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles
  • SKS won't fit onto a Defy because it uses normal shallow drop brakes. The Defy specific ones have a cut away section to fit around the brakes.

    I had a set of cruds Mk2's on my Defy and I hated them so much I never used them. I have now fitted some Giant ones and they are almost as good as SKS ones (not quite the wrap around of SKS) so I would suggest you buy those.

    Of course if you want to keep removing and refitting the guards then Cruds would be better but I leave my on all of the time along with a rack.
