    zefal swan and croozer II aren’t bad if you’re after crud catcher style.

    Can anyone recommend some mud guards that i can use on my CX bike for training and commuting (NOT RACING)

    primarily easy to remove as will be doing this weekly for CX races, light and cheap also a bonus

    links welcome

    thanks they look like they will do the job, also considering the sks race blade XL’s anyone tried these ones? or both? or have other options?

    These look good but i can’t find too many reviews…

    +1 for a Zefal Swan, only takes seconds to fit/remove and are pretty stable in use.

    Whopping great SKS ones. The widest your frame will take. Much less chance of mud clogging them up off road. Narrow ones give less protection, espcially if knobbly tyres throw muck sideways. Mine come on and off as the mood takes me. 3 bolts at the front, all kept in place ready with a scrap of tape. 4 at the back but still no hassle. Once set up its less than 10 minutes to fit both. Even less to remove them. That inlcudes greasing each thread etc.

    Any options for the Zefal Swan / Crud Guard type but with a clamp which means it can be fitted without removing the seatpost?

    I’m considering a rear guard too for occasional duties, but will want it off regularly for racing etc. I’ll soon tire of continually altering the seatpost height I reckon.

    swan doesn’t need the seatpost removing.

    Thanks for those replies. Is that because the clamp stays on the seat post permanently, and the guard attaches to the clamp, or is the clamp itself hinged?

    Sorry for the inane questions – it isn’t clear from photos and my last crud could only be fitted by removing the post.

    For the crud buard, the clamp is split so once you undo the bolt, you can just remove the whole thing, unlike the previous versions.
