Show me your bikes that you think look good with mudguards on
I don’t get the hard core mtbers hatred of the mudguard, so many times in awful conditions I’ve seen lads go past with nice expensive bikes, no rear mud gaurd and shit all up their back. Content and function over aesthetics every time.
I think there’s an element of objectivenes in it. For just plodding allong they’re fine, but for anythign ganrr they get in the way, snag, snap, swivel round, jam wheels, or just fall off. Over time this has been enshrined in the unofficial ‘rules’, so now people who just want to plod about (thinking they’re gnarr) refuse them.
‘ass defender’, and some inertube between the forks works OK for me. Or various models of chromoplastics and raceblades on the road.Posted 4 years agoroverpigSubscriber
Neoguard and bender fender both do as good a job as each other at keeping the crap off you in my experience, but as we can see from the picture above the neoguard doesn’t do much to protect the stanchions.
I’m not too bothered about the aesthetics (I ride a Five after all), but I’ve yet to find a rear guard that works on a full suss, with a dropper.Posted 4 years agoz1ppyMembermangatankMember
I’ve gone full Mucky Nutz. Tiny weight for what appears to be complete protection from mud. Everything stayed put on downhillish stuff on Saturday and nothing dropped off on a bumpy XC ride today.
It could indicate madness to ride with anything else given their effectiveness and feathery lightness…Posted 4 years agoiaincSubscriber
mangatank – I have the same front ones as you and I think they are superb, and as you say weigh next to nothing. Much less faff that a front crudguard to take on and off too.
I was thinking about the back one, but am sticking with a rear crudguard, which fits in neatly beneath my reverbPosted 4 years ago
