    Quick Release Front Mudguard ?

    Does anyone do a quick release, demountable, but robust front mudguard? I ask, because I transport my 25kg bike in the back of my estate car. I remove the front wheel and turn the forks 90 degrees, to get it in. It is easy and convenient. Only downside (apart from the mud) this leaves the...

    Really pee'd off. :mad: Having worn the original SRAM 11 speed chain and cassette out in 750 miles (about 8 weeks), I put it down to not checking chain and more hard riding than cleaning. Since then I have been mechanically sympathetic and cleaned the bike and drivetrain meticulously after...

Might not be everyones...
