Wil tests and reviews 12 top mountain bike accessories for your new (or old) ride

New to cycling? Just got yourself a spangly new mountain bike? Or maybe you’ve been riding for years, but prefer to spend your time actually riding and hanging out with your mates rather than trawling the internet for all the latest gear news and reviews?

Whatever the case, this list is curated just for you. The list contains 12 different mountain bike accessories designed to strap onto your mountain bike – some of the products are designed to hold things, others are there for protection – both for you and your bike.

I’ve been using most of these products on and off for the past year or so, and consequently, I’m pretty across what they do well and not so well. As always though, if you’ve got any questions about any of these, shoot ’em into the comments section below and I’ll do my best to answer them for you.

Why do you ask for registration to view some articles?

We get asked this a lot. The simple reason is that content is increasingly expensive to commission, create and publish and where once the cost of this process was mostly covered by advertising revenues, now that’s no longer the case. We increasingly rely on our paying members to keep Singletrack going and we’d love you to become one of our supporters. however, that’s not we are asking right now. You can read the rest of this feature simply by registering an account on our site.

How does being a free, registered user help you?

It’s NOT so we can sell your email details. It’s not so we can show you more ads either – in fact when you register we show you fewer ads. The reason is actually because registered users come back and look at more of our content. They start interacting with us and posting comments of their own and joining in forum discussion. That level of interaction is what eventually feeds our new subscriber numbers and so for us the journey to gaining new subscribers is to start by encouraging you to simply register an account. We hope that the benefits that will bring to you will be the first step in you joining us as a Singletrack Premier supporter.

    I’d pay £9 for something at is specific to the crank, and definitely fits, rather than £2 for one that ‘almost’ fits…

    I’m happy to be corrected but from my experience the Fidlock bottles only twist off clockwise, they’re not changeable for left-handed release.
    Still damn good though.

    Mucky Nutz did the first folding fender (just saying ‘ cos I invented it!)

    £1.79 with free postage ordered , thanks for the tip

    You don’t seriously think that there’s a noticeable difference in fit, do you?

    There just ISN’T.

    Happy to help. I’ve used budget boots like these on all sorts of cranks (Shimano, SRAM, FSA), for years and years, and they fit and work perfectly on ALL of them.

    I like that K-Edge chain guide…but £90!

    Anyone know if the Zee cage works with Cotic Rocket 27.5 (2016 version)?
