Bike mudguards are a worthy investment for anyone who will be riding through water and mud from time to time. There’s nothing worse than arriving at your destination soaking wet from the water being flicked up by your tyres or sporting an unflattering brown stain up your entire back from your rear wheel spray.
Clip-on plastic guards are a popular option as they generally offer quite good protection and can be easily removed when conditions dry up. Most models simple attach to your seatpost with no tools required and be adjusted to fit the type of bike you ride.
Micro mudguards have become increasingly popular in recent times thanks to a range of innovative new designs that allow them to be folded up and stored underneath your saddle when not required. These are ideal for people who don’t often ride in the rain but don’t want to be caught out when it does.
