I have this bike

Will these mudguards fit OK?

I don't know much about fittings, but there is a picture on the bike link.

URL not found for the bike. The mudguard link goes to a non-existent Ebay listing. You need to fix the links before anyone can help you. –  daviesgeek Dec 2 '11 at 17:42

From the Topeak website, the front one attaches like this:

and the rear one like this (onto the seatpost):

so it's likely they'll both fit.

A search for the Topeak FX Mudguard on Google Shopping gives me various ones at less than £9 as does the Topeak RX Mudguard. This place allterraincycles.co.uk appears to have both the front and rear in stock and will charge you 2 quid less including delivery, than the ebay one you're looking at.

Thanks. I purchased these in the end. –  user155695 Oct 9 '10 at 21:09
    
Just for the record, the front one: both parts of the mudguard are detatchable, the fixing screws up into the suspension tube as you can see on the picture above. As you tighten the allen screw it expands for a tight fitting. Then you just clip the front/back parts on. –  user155695 Oct 9 '10 at 21:10
    
The rear one clips around the seatpost, there is a strap which latches on and you tighten it and clip it back, seems solid enough –  user155695 Oct 9 '10 at 21:11
