Easily take-off-and-onnable mudguards for your sportive bike

We've reported on these 'guards before, but we also shot a bit of vid at Eurobike just to show how easy it is to take them off. Guinea pig VecchioJo had never even seen them before, but he managed to whip off the rear mudguard in just a few seconds; all that's left is some small metal tabs on the dropouts and the brake bolts.

They look much sturdier (and they're also longer) than other removeable 'guards, and a pair is even now winging its way to road.cc towers to be put through its paces. Obviously mudguard-hating Jo won't be getting them, but there's pleny of willing testers queuing up to try them out round here. When we know how they work in real world conditions, so will you!

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

Easy for me and plenty of other fanatics to be smug but I have a 'winter' bike with mudguards that I ride to work and ride for weekends in the rain, slush and mud for longer rides. And a lovely 'best' bike that i would hope never to sully with mudguards. However, there is a growing and welcome number of people who have bought a road bike and who hope to keep riding year-round who can also see the sense in fitting mudguards just when they're needed. Hopefully, in time all these new road cyclists will see the sense in having a second (or third, or fourth) bike but in the meantime the Mr Crud 'pop-on' guards and now these even easier ones will hopefully do the business.

Are these on sale yet? What's the RRP? Have to say they look like a great option for people struggling along with only one road bikee!  20

They told me £44.99 at Eurobike but they're not available yet. Might be a month or two by the looks of it.
