Fitting SKS road mudguards to the Boardman Hybrid Pro.

Fitting SKS road mudguards to the Boardman Hybrid Pro.
By stovesy
A fairly straight forward fit, but a few things to note. The front mudguard is the trickiest. The fixing to attach the supporting clip to the forks is not long enough – I bought a 70mm M5 hex bolt from ebay to do the trick, and remember, not too tight; the carbon won’t like it. The ...

Alter the function in wp-content/uploads/montezuma/javascript.js (you ...
