Crud Roadracer mkII tips?

Bascially I've fitted these guards last night, the front is fine, no issues there.

However the frame I have (BMC Streetfire) has so little clearance between the rear stay and the tyre that I had to chop the front off, and that means I can't use the extra peice that goes down by the front mech, but it still rubs!

Is there anything else I can do? I'm using tiny cable ties and they are very tight yet its still rubbing my tyres :(

Any tips would be really apreciated.

  • I think it's possible to use a heat gun/hair dryer to "slightly" remould the plastic. I never tried it on mine, but agree it's a tight fit on my CAAD9.

    I don't think I'd be able to use 25mm on my bike, which is a pity because I prefer them in winter :cry:
