Suggest a rear mudguard

Postby cyclepathic » Tue Feb 05, 2013 10:57 am

I got a Crud raceguard attach to the rear of my bike but it doesn't stop enough of the mud from being flicked up. After about a hours ride, my lower portion of my backpack is covered. I'm not sure if this is because it's coverage is not long or wide enough for the type of riding I do.

Anyway, I had a look at the SKS Grand M.O.M and that seems ideal.
Can anyone recommend this or something similar?

You're never going to stop all mud from reachiung your backpack. A better idea is to put one of those backpack covers over it then just wash it between rides.

I use a Zefal NoMud on my MTB. Once you have it fitted it's solid! It doesn't move if it gets bashed and gives great coverage.

Fairly inexpensive too compared to other alternatives I've seen.

I had a look at the mud splatter on the bike, there's none under the saddle which suggest to me that the guard is not long enough. So for the interim I've gone a bit MacGyver and wrapped the downtube mudguard to the rear which allows me to adjust the reach. Just need a test run to see if it holds.

If that doesn't work out, I will definitely have a look at the Zefal suggested.

Mudguards? Just peel the cruddy clothes off and stick them in the washing machine.
Stick the camelbak in the shower.
Simple.

I must admit I was curious as to why the bottom of my camelbak gets plastered despite having mudguards (and the seatpost/saddle staying clean). Wondering if it's happening during the times I'm off the saddle and leaning back a bit.
