So, I hear that the mudhugger is properly effective on the MTBs (I’ve no personal experience; I can’t quite bring myself to look at one (I mean buy one).
However, as I’m mostly riding my gravel bike at the moment, and there’s little in the way of gravel just now, is there an effective off road gravel guard? Currently have an ass-saver thing and a downtube guard, which are fine most of the time, but they’re rather overwhelmed in current conditions.
It’s a nice looking Ti bike, so don’t want something too gopping … But maybe it’s a case of gopping, or ineffective? … pick one?
Edit … full guards not an option, no fittings on the frame, and I’m not keen off-road.Posted 3 months agoa11ySubscriber
SKS Edge 56 on Exotic Monocoque fork with no fixings, using plastics P-clips at the bottom and 32mm plastic waste pipe and cable ties at the top to create a false ‘arch’ to attach the guard to. Solid even off road.
I did similar on my previous bike which has much shorter a-c fork by simply cable tieing the mudguard to the fork crown. Was reasonably tidy and rock solid.Posted 3 months agomunrobikerMember
I was also going to suggest SKS Edges. I use my gravel bike on single-track in the Pentland hills and have taken it down all sorts of rattly stuff and muddy stuff at all sorts of speeds and they just stay put. They’re great and provide much better coverage than a mudhugger and look nicer.Posted 3 months ago
