SKS Bluemels 700c 42mm mudguards £12.99 @ Decathalon instore and online

Found 13th Oct 2016
It's that time of year where the mudguards get fitted, and this is a good price for these, SKS have a great reputation. They usually retail for £21.99 at Decathalon and the cheapest you can normally get them online is around £18.

They are 42mm so perfect for 1-1.5" tyres. They may be a little wide for skinny road tyres/frames, and are being discontinued for 35mm versions, hence the price.

Nice deal, and would be great for my commuting hard tail (assuming they'd fit a 26 inch wheel'd bike) except I was really stupid when I fitted road tyres, and fitted 1.95s

Yes, I bought them to fit to my daughter's 26" hybrid bike as no-one seems to make a narrow 26" mudguard. Lots of people have said 700c will fit with a little adjusting.

Check your bike before buying, I bought something similar recently, and my forks didnt have lower fitting holes, so I had to see 'em back.
Decathlon recommend these for the Triban 520 & 540 road bikes, got a pair ready to fit

Sure, whatever bike you have will need to have mudguard mounting points or else they will be no good.
Does anyone know if these will fit a bike with disc brakes?

I can't see why they wouldn't as long as you have the mounting points on the frame.
I got these last year as SKS supposedly have a good name and honestly say they are the WORST mudguards I have ever had! They vibrate and rattle off your tyre like nobodies business as the plastic is so flimsy. A rivet has fallen out within a month and the front break-away plastic mounts often pop out for no reason - I have had to super-glue them in. Terrible design that obviously has not been tested in the real world.

I had full Zefal mudguards on my old mountain bike for 25 years+ and never had any of these problems, and they were cheaper!

BTW fitting is not easy either, be prepared to hacksaw off the ends of the stays and ditch the plastic endcaps.
I've been considering either these or the bluemels primus for my BTwin Triban 540
