Fixed mudguards are extremely practical for commuter or winter training bikes. With suitable threaded eyelets on the frame and fork, mounting isn't much more complicated than with clip-on mudguards. Once fitted, these mudguards offer an excellent level of protection against splash water and road dirt. Even casual thieves have little chance of getting away with these permanently-mounted mudguards. The slightly more complex mounting system usually ensures a tighter, rattle-free fit. Always make sure to buy the correct mudguards for your wheel size and tyres.
