Searching for the perfect mudguards...

by packer   December 8, 2008  

Hello all,

I am looking for a very specific pair of mudguards and cannot seem to find any that fit the bill anywhere... Here's what I'm after:

- Alloy or stainless steel construction
- Full length long mudguards
- Narrow width (around 36mm)
- Smooth design (no ridges or wierd finishes)
- No pre-drilled holes in them whatsoever

If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
P

that's quite a specific set of requirements! off the top of my head i can only think of salmon guards that come close but they're not as wide as that, i think they're 24mm. it might be worth approcahing a framebuilder to see if they could knock you up the set you want?

if you're looking for some really fly mudguards, look no further than www.fastboyfenders.com...

Thanks for the info guys.

Think I have settled on the Gilles Berthoud (www.gillesberthoud.fr) touring mudguards.
They are a little wider than I wanted at 40mm wide but they meet all my other criteria perfectly...

Cheers,
P
