Of course, it is a suitable "mud guard", which will solve all your troubles in the riding.

Mud guard type


  • Fixed type


If your bicycle has enough clearance and has a rear seat or a drilled front fork to fix the bolts on it, the mud guard in this way will be the most durable, safest and cleanest choice.


Many brands of bicycles offer fixed mud guards. If your bike does not have mud guard clearance and screw holes, there are still options for you. Mud guards, usually with nylon ties or clips, are also a good choice.


  • Tie type


The mud guard of this design is very simple and easy to install. It is very popular on mountain bikes. These front mud guards are quite versatile in design and are suitable for most mountain bikes. The design of the rear nylon tie mud guard changes greatly, and the compatibility depends largely on your frame, especially for full shock-absorbing bicycles.


  • Saddle type


This basic rear mud guard is the simplest of the mud guards. It is located just below the cushion between the tracks to protect your back from the worst. Although it can do more than that, its installation and disassembly are very fast and easy.


Dimensions of mud guard


After we choose the mud guard style, we also need to consider the size of the mud guard before perfect installation. The mud guard (especially the traditional bolt on type) is not one size fits all, so you need to measure the size of the bicycle. When installing mud guards for bicycles, some important measurement indexes need to be considered: Tire radius, tire width and frame clearance.


  • Tire radius


Tire specification information can be obtained by checking the side of the tire. Many roads, gravel or touring bicycles use 650B or 700C to represent the tire radius. However, most mountain bikes use 26 inches, 27.5 inches or 29 inches to represent the tire radius size.


  • Tire width


Check the tire width information on the side of the tire and select a mud guard at least 8mm wider than the tire. If your tire width is 42mm, select a mud guard with a width of at least 50mm. This will help prevent the mud guard from rubbing against the tire and provide enough space for small stones and other debris to ride without getting stuck between the mud guard and the tire.


  • Frame clearance


When you choose to install a mud guard between the tire and the frame, you should first ensure that your bike has enough space. Ideally, a minimum height of 20 to 30 mm is required between the tire and the rear fork or between the tire and the front fork to fit most traditional mud guards. In addition, you should also ensure the width of the front fork and mud guard to ensure that the front fork or brake caliper can operate normally after the mud guard is installed.


In general, although the longer the mud guard, it will provide better protection for your bike and you. However, when you choose, you need to consider your bicycle and your specific use environment, so as to select the most suitable mud guard.
