I was looking at the latest edition of Cycling (CTC magazine) and noticed so many of the bikes in it had front mudguards that ended way above the riders shoes.
This seems to be the latest fad, even the Francis Barnett ebike, a traditional style cycle has a short front mudguard.
Yet a quick look at photos from the past shows mudguards that were adequately long.
Just why do manufacturers do this?
