Crud catcher + Reverb, anyone managed to fit one.
Im now getting a very muddy bum as I cant get my Crud catcher to fit well on my bike while using a Reverb. If I fit it low down on the seatpost it fouls the rear tyre on the slightest of bumps.
I ride a 6 inch travel bike.
Anyone found something that works ? Or do I need to Blue Peter a solution ?Posted 6 years agoSTATOMember
hmm, not sure how a fork mounted mudguard is supposed to keep him arse free of mud 🙄
For my gravity dropper i just mount the guard above the seat post clamp, infact thats where it goes on a normal seatpost so i dont really have your problem. What rear guard do you have, i think there was once an option for long/short brackets but not sure the most recent one does. There are other guards that might be more suitable SKS, topeak etc. Tho i think you need to give up on the idea if your short and have a 6″ bike, surely you wont be able to get off the back of the saddle far enough if there is a guard bolted the seat?Posted 6 years ago
iain1775 – they may keep me dry, but wont stop the mud. The last ride I did ended up with me having enough mud on my shorts to plant potatoes in. I want to avoid washing my shorts (outers) and jacket after every ride. Also it will keep the muck off the dropper post as well.Posted 6 years ago
I had the exact same problem with a full sus frame, a reverb and a rear crud catcher. I cut the crud catcher mounting bracket in half, from top to bottom, midway between the seat post clamp and the section which allows you to adjust the angle of the mudguard. I then cut a 5 inch long ally plate to match the sliced bracket and used some self tappers to screw the pre drilled bracket to the seat clamp side of the crud catcher mount. Then I used self tappers to fit the rest of the mudguard 5 inches higher, via the top of my ally plate, than the seat clamp part.Posted 6 years ago
This mod/bodge works perfectly and the 5 inch long plate gives extra mud protection the the exposed inner post whilst allowing full suspension and post movement.
