I don’t like mudguards, they are ALWAYS a pain. Anyway, I finally succumbed and got the winter bike down, and took it out for a spin. Naturally had a problem with the mudguards while out – the front one broke and jammed. Funny what happens when the front wheel stops dead….
Anyway, I removed what was left of it, and will have to replace it. The chainrings on that bike (a Giant Defy 3.5) are cheap and nasty, and I really must get them sorted.
