- Which rear mudguard? (sorry)
If you are swapping them out, then the crud guard is hard to beat for removing & replacing. Just make sure you get one that has the newer keyed bolt design, so it doesn’t end up just spinning around like mine does.
Only thing you’ll need to worry about is the rubber shims for different seatpost sizes…..they come with the guard, but just make sure you know where they are if you are regularly swapping.Posted 6 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I recently bought one of the V-brake fitting ones from decathon (about £7) and some p-clips off ebay (£5 for 50, so if anyone needs soem 1/2″ ones then give me a shout).
The advantages as far as I can see are;Posted 6 years ago
a) looks less crap than a seatpost mounted guard.
b) much closer to the tyre so actualy stops some mud
c) wraps arround the tyre so catches mud that would otherwise spray arround the sides.
d) moves with the suspension which means it’s always int he perfect position, not 6″ above the rear wheel doing nothing.z1ppyMember
+1 to thisisnotaspoon, that the best mud guard in the world, and not a bad looker too (as mudguards go) if you can make it fit to your bike.
My inbred has one, but my full sussers have to make do with a crud catchers.Posted 6 years ago

Good thing about the crud on an inbred or 456 is that it will clamp onto the seat tube rather than seat post so not a fuss when dropping saddle etc.
Oooooh, never thought of that! Will have to give that a go.
Although saying that, I forgot about that Decathlon one. Might get one of those for the Inbred; just need to put the brake boss mounts onto it.
That Zefal combo above looks pretty neat.Posted 6 years agoprojectMember
Ive got a cheap one from Halfords, multi adjustable,
good quality clamp, and it does the job
The arm tilts to any angle and it folds flat for storage.
You can also use it for cleaning gutters .Posted 6 years ago
