Topic - Cheaper mudguards and puncture-proof set-up for road bike

Martin1978 on 02 Oct 2013
Hi all,

I'm after some mudguards for my bike, but there isn't room under the brakes for one.

I've found these: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/sks-raceblade-long-mudguards/rp-prod82995

which look like they will do the job. They are very expensive though. I need something similar but they don't need to be removable, so happy for proper bolt-on guards if needed.

Also, I need tyres. Going to be using the bike for the commute and to cut down general use of the car. Mostly tarmac but some of it quite broken/farm tracks and through town. I am looking at the Schwalbe Marathon 700x25c. Do you think it's worth getting slime tubes as well? I know it will be a heavy set-up but as I say, reliability is key. Or do slime tubes and cheaper tyres work just as well?

Cheers, Martin
