    by fromWorth the money I ride daily and these fenders really work to keep me and the bike clean in this wet Seattle weather. The fenders fit cleanly and securely around my wheels; they are light weight so you can hardly tell they are there. The deraileur cover is unique and works. I am extremely happy with these fenders. Highly recommended:)

    by fromGreat Design I installed these on my '09 Specialized Allez and they just fit. It took some time to get them just right but it was worth it. I've used them in rainy, dry and windy conditions and in all cases you forget they're there.

    by fromExceeds expectations These fenders slide under the rear brake bridge and front fork crown which is a something that has been difficult to accomplish with most race/performance bikes with narrow clearance and 19-25 tires (and a feature lacking in Race Blade style fenders). There's also a shroud over the rear wheel zip-tied to the seat tube that does a great job keeping most of the crud out of the front derailleur. Take your time installing the fenders. Read the directions carefully and follow the installation tips. It takes some time to sort out the pieces and how they fit together. Visit www.crudproducts.com which is the manufacturer's website in the UK. Installation illustrations on the website are more detailed and there are useful (and amusing!) video tips for installation. In use, due to the full coverage, the fenders shed water and debris much better than the Race Blades I used for several years. My commuter/winter bike has a small compact type frame and there were no problems fitting the fenders. The fenders look flimsy but in use are very stable and don't rattle. The only downside is these fenders do not feature quick mount/dismount. If you use fenders infrequently, Race Blade style fenders would be better for you.

    by fromOutstanding product! Quite possibly the best road bike fender on the market. The roadracer mk2 is an outstanding product, offering supreme protection against even the worst conditions. Crud have really thought about how to maximize coverage whilst keeping the fender light, inconspicuous and tough. The coverage of the roadracer is so good, they're as good as full frame-fixed fenders. Yet without making your bike look like a hybrid commuter special. Fitting is easy, although takes a bit of fine tuning, the instructions are clear and simple, so you won't have a problem. All round excellent product, and highly recommended. Much much better than the usual 'race blade' type of fender, which simply don't compare.

    by fromAwsome! I used to race road bikes many years ago, and if I had these perhaps I wouldn't have gotten burned out when I did. Those years of training in the rain took thier toll, and fenders that would fit a good road bike where hard to come by. I don't race anymore, but still commute, and I put these on one of my road bikes for my wet rides here in soggy Portland, Oregon. Installation was pretty straight forward, and best of all, THEY FIT! It seems obvious that whoever designed these road race bikes as well, and overall, the design of these is brilliant. There is a tiny amount of tire rub, but nothing that will slow you down. I cannot think of a way that these could be improved, and I am really good at finding flaws. If you are a serious roadie, or just a commuter that rides a fast bike with minimal clearance, these are the way to go!

    by fromIdeal just confusing to install These things work great. They are not rigidly anchored and so every now and then you have to pull out on the stays so they don't rub BUT the rubbing is very very minimal and quiet anyway. Even though I leave these on all year (hard to take off) they don't make your bike look bulky and also are pleasing on the eyes.... Anyway the only con I have is the complete lack of CLEAR instructions on how to install these babies. While it is easy, it is not straight forward which parts go which way and what not. I advise all to watch the video on UTube and just take your time. Anyway I highly recommend these to those who ride long, fast and are particular about the way things look on your bike...

    by fromSatisfied Installed on a 2012 Specialized Sirrus Limited (hybrid), 700c x 23 tires. They've been on for 400+ miles, and 4 months at the time of this review and I'm satisfied with them. They took a few hours of patient fiddling around to get them to fit, clearances are very tight on the bike. To my surprise, they've stayed in adjustment and I've not had to make any adjustments since the original installation. Pay heed to the 5mm minimum clearance specification between the tire and frame/fork/brakes. There was a little over 5mm clearance on my bike and the fit was still very tight. They do make noise when the tires pick up bits of gravel and scrape the insides of the fenders. The plastic nuts and bolts supplied are weak and I replaced them with metal ones, painted black with black nail polish. The fenders keep the bike clean and I spend the least amount of time cleaning this bike, as compared to my road bike and mountain bike. Although it's dry here in Arizona, I ride a greenbelt that's heavily watered in the summer and the pavement is always wet.

    by fromJunk - Not Recommended Installed these on my Specialized road bike with 700x23 tires. The install was easy when following the video from Crud's site, but the plastic screws and nuts are complete junk. The screws on the stays aren't even long enough for a tight fit, which means the adjustment constantly slips, causing the fenders to rub. The nuts were actually popping off at times. I like the coverage of these fenders, but I would never recommend these due to the flimsiness of the entire setup. These are definitely going back. I guess I'll try the Raceblades next.
