Hi anyone know where you can get those small rain flaps that look like they fit on the rear of the saddle to keep you bum dry. :D

    Better than nothing, but no replacement for a proper mudguard. The main advantages they have are that they weigh nothing, are very easy to clip on/off and won't rattle every time you hit a bump.

    I'm guessing that these would still fit with a small saddle bag/caddy in place :?:

    Ass Savers are great - keep most of the spray off your back and keep it all off your bum. Weigh nothing and cost very little.
    However they do nothing to help keep your bike clean!

    Probably, may depend on the bag but only if it's particularly large. As long as there's a little clearance between the top of the bag and the bottom of your saddle that you can slide it into you should be OK. I have one of these and it's fine with that.

    Thanks for that. If anything mine is a little smaller..... one of these
    So I think it should fit.

    reminds me of the advert from the seventies. "they're not proper mudguards, that saddles like a razor blade.." etc.

    you can easily make your own from an A4 piece of polypropelene, i made one from an old polyprop ring binder
    All lies and jest..still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest....

    I have a similar thing that I bought in the early 90's I guess. A Raintail!!

    Googled it and there's still some old stock about.
