- Let's see your Mudhuggers on a full sus 26.
cant find the img source for instagram.. but heres one on my meta.. (not the best of angles.. sorry!)
first ride last weekend in loads of mud.. I still got a bit on my back but nothing like as much as i would without the guard.. and it kept my bum dry!
and more importantly for me.. i got next to nothing on the dropper post and hardly anything where the linkage connected to the swingarm
I bought the normal guard (not the more expensive orange five one) and it fitted fine.. ( i think i may have used my own zip ties though.. cant remember!) and there was more than enough helicopter tape for me..
the orange five guard comes with longer cable ties and extra heli-tape..Posted 4 years ago
Hi. Put one on my Five at the weekend. A very solid piece of kit that looks like a winter fit and forgot. However it didn’t keep me any cleaner than a well place traditional seatpost mudguard (if they are working).
I’ll be writing a review with blogs on the MuddyMoles blog later todayPosted 4 years agospacehopperSubscriber
cheers ceepers.. 🙂
id forgotten i modified mine to fit… as My brake hose runs down my swingarm!
i just had to cut a bit off one end and a notch into the other.. then it slotted between the hose guides.. and i’ve actually attached it to the brake hose guide at one end rather than a tie all the way around the swingarm.. the l shaped bit at the bottom then slides nicely under the hose
it would look nicer if it followed my tyre more closely towards the end of the guard like it does on postierich’s bike… but thats more to do with my swingarm being nearly horizontal.Posted 4 years agoD0NKSubscriber
Hmm, mate has one of these tempted to give it a go as my ageing crud guards are getting a bit rickety, plus you don’t have to mess around with a mudhugger when dropping the saddle (I use a qr on my CG)
Think you are right in your review about a crud catcher protecting your jersey tonyG, thing is, do you care much? If it’s wet you’ll have waterproof/resistant jacket on anyway, aslong as I’m protecting my eyes/face from splash using a fender bender or similar and maybe a neoprene/innertube mudflap aswell I’m happy, don’t mind a bit of mud up my front. Got a couple of crud catchers at home not bothered fitting them for years, mind you with the monsoon we appear to be having I might be tempted.
Fender all year round, rear guard when it’s wet, full guards for commuting.Posted 4 years ago
I think we agree Donk. Although conditions are grim out there at the moment so going for all the protection I can. The main thing for me with the rear guard is protecting expensive dropper posts and shocks from the crud, which the mudhugger did.
BTW Bruce has mailed me to say that they are working on a mudhugger extension to provide really complete rear protection. Seems like they are onto there product development.
The front Powa guard was the disappointment for me. It looks good (for a mudguard) but I think that the SKS shockguard is better and waaay cheaperPosted 4 years ago
