Ass Savers thanks to rOcKeTdOg
Ripping of RD’s idea from last week my Ass Savers turned up today.
The next site is work and child safe. I promise……..

The MuckyNutz one is tricker to fit than it should be…I managed it taking the seatpost out of my frame. But that equals faff in my book…maybe it’s my fat fingers?
this (ass-saver) looks a simpler design/easier fitting. although it has less fixings than the mucky nutz version
I’d be intrested in how the ‘ass saver’ holds up when it covered in mudPosted 5 years agomattjgSubscriber
Did 3 hours last night, plenty of roots, mud and steps, with one of these on my Charge Spoon. It did the job it was designed for and was still there at the end.
It’s perhaps a little more tricky to fit the first time, but perhaps more secure too as it has 4 fixing points to the rails not two. Really we are talking 45 seconds vs 30 seconds, it’s no biggie.Posted 5 years agoir_banditoSubscriber
Had my first trial of Bender Fender and Butt Fender last night.
Not bad at all for something so small and light. Nowhere near as good protection as my usual THE front moto-x style fender and old-skool Crud-guard on the back, but as subtle and light alternative I was impressed.
What gets me is that the protection is a reversal from my usual. Nomally, the rear wheel has close coverage (which keeps the dropper seatpost clean) and the front has loads of clearance by mounting in the crown. This is the other way round with tight clearance at the front and acres of clearance at tge back.
What would be really good would be a Bender-Fender style ‘guard to go on the back. If nothing else, they look better being tighter to the wheel as they’re less obvious.Posted 5 years agoir_banditoSubscriber
Bender fender on the rear wouldn’t give enough coverage
It would on some frames, but not on most. what I’d like to see though is something that attaches to chainstays and wraps around the wheel, with clearance. So it doesn’t have to be mounted miles away to give clearance for suspension movement.
organic355: I think it would, with some longer bits of velcro. Not sure if it would extend too far out the back and catch on the downtube though. Or in fact it would clash on the brakes (presuming rim brakes)Posted 5 years ago
