- Mucky Nutz vs Neoguard
My Mucky Nuts only clogs in the horriblest of mud- the sort that’s rubbish to ride anyway. Will depend on tyre clearance though, older or smaller forks are more likely to have problems I reckon. All my bikes have them on, all the time, unless it’s really messy when I sometimes fit a shockboard instead.
Neoguard/similiar are OK but can cause mud to shelf up around the fork seals, not ideal.Posted 4 years agoFOGSubscriber
I went from Neoguard to Mucky nutz XL as I got fed up of a plume of sh**e hitting me in the face as soon as I hit a faster bit or tarmac. The XL is better but you still get stuff coming up from the front wheel to the extent I have been thinking about one of those big MX style front guards.Posted 4 years agoell_tellMember
I have both the Mucky Nutz and Neoguard on both my bikes. One is running a Fox 32 Vanilla and the other a Reba.
I find the clearance with the Mucky Nutz on the Reba a bit too tight with a 2.3 Purgatory tyre if I’m honest, although it is workable.
No problems with the Vailla with regards clearance.
They both do an admirable job of keeping the crap out of my face but perhaps the Mucky Nutz just edges it for me.Posted 4 years agoEcky-ThumpMember
MuckyNuts on all three bikes here. Mainly to keep the muck off the stanchions & seals rather than to keep me clean!
On the H/T with a Reba there is very little clearance but the only time it’s jammed up has been when pushing through deep claggy snow. Never actually jammed whilst riding. 2.35 Minion, crudcatcher on downtube.
On the F/S bikes I’ve got the 44RC3ti with a 2.35 Minion and the 66RC3ti with a 2.5 Minion. Clearance seems OK with both.Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
Both are products which can be bodged by anyone with access to scissors and houshold rubbish…
but ignoring that I’d say a fender type jobbie is marginally better for 2 pretty minor reasons:
1- Less likely to buzz on the front tyre
2- Ever so slightly better aerodynamics
I find both prevent about the same amount of mud going in your eyes, the old
inner tube mud flapsorry “Neo-guard” might stop a wee bit more.
a supplementary crud catcher will help with both where mud is projecting more up than forwards…Posted 4 years ago
