Last year I got some SKS mudguards to fit to my cross bike for the winter. Stupidly when I was trying to fit the front one I managed to shear the bolt of the head off Anyway I filed it down and managed to make the fork look ok, but i gave up on doing anything else as I did not want to cause any more damage.
I am getting all my winter kit together just now and thought there might be a way of resolving this. Does anybody have any ideas. I had a look online and there is a guy that drills large holes and fits something that looks like a tightly coiled spring which he then screws into. Is this a realistic option and if it is what are these things called.
Any help would be great or I'll be getting soaked again this winter.
