Hopefully we have seen the last of the poor weather for a while but perhaps you want to plan ahead to riding later / earlier in the season. Mudguards are the socially responsible option for wet group riding but they can be a problem fit, these are specifically designed for the Giant Defy and Liv Avail with tight brake caliper clearance. Have served me well over 2+ winters but I upgraded my brakes to Ultegra that are even tighter!
Available to any BCG member for a mutually agreeable donation (£10 min) to my Bloodwise sponsorship page. I would recommend some new fixings but you can get standard ”bottle cage” bolts from Chaineys for pennies - or I can perhaps find you the slightly rusty ones!
