Orange 5 mudguards
I use crudguards front and rear. I HATE having gritty water sprayed up my back (which then runs down the crack of my ar&e) and I know that the downtube is wide, but I reckon that every stone that hits the crud guard is a stone not hitting my frame. I think they look ok (but that’s my opinion).Posted 6 years agofivespotMember
Front & rear Cruds & home made Neo guard out of a knackered BBS overshoe. I can’t see the sense in riding with a cold wet ar5se covered in mud, wearing away at my shorts and saddle, not to mention the extra weight in water/mud that I would end up carrying around stuck to my clothes 🙄Posted 6 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Front crudcatcher is almost completely useless by itself. Bender Fender does the job that the crudcatcher fails to do, but for best results get something like a Shockboard- no more ugly than a Crudcatcher, and immensely more effective. Neoguard is another way to do it, but uglier than the Bender Fender and does a good job of directing mud onto your fork legs and seals.
Rear guards are tricky on the back. IMO the Neoguard is much better than the latest Crudcatcher rear with the single bolt fixing- I managed to get one of the new Cruds to work properly and all it took was a soldering iron and a lathe, easy!Posted 6 years ago
