Installing your bike’s mudguards is probably the hardest part of setting up your bike.

 

But not to fear - as complicated as mudguards may seem, this step by step guide will help make the whole process simple:


The first stage is ensuring that you have the right parts to fit your mudguards:





Fitting your front mudguard:


1. It’s time to install the first mudguard: place the mudguards between the fork legs, ensuring that one metal tab is placed in front of the fork, with the other behind it:

2. Make sure that the shorter end of the mudguard is pointing forward, like so:

3. Use the long Phillips bolt to fix the mudguard onto the fork leg, ensuring that there is a washer in front of each metal tab:


4. With your mudguard positioned centrally and with sufficient clearance between the mudguard and the tyre, tighten the bolt using a 10mm spanner and a Phillips screwdriver



Fitting your rear mudguard:


So, that’s your front mudguard fitted. All that’s left to do now is to install the rear mudguard:


1. Place the rear mudguard between the stays, as the picture shows:

2. Using the short Phillips bolt, fix the mudguard onto the strut connecting the two seat stays.

 

3. There should be a washer between the metal tab and lock nut and also between the metal tab and the head of the bolt.

 

4. With your mudguard positioned centrally and with sufficient clearance between the mudguard and the tyre, tighten the bolt using a 10mm spanner and a Phillips screwdriver:



And that's it! Your mudguards have been set up and your bike is ready to go whatever the weather!
