Hi, i was wondering if anyone knows of where to get a downtube mudguard the same as the small on on the Lapierre DH-920 2011.
Or a small one which is very similar, hate big mud guards but something like that looks cool while working.
Cheers

  • Just lift your front wheel when going through a puddle.

    while a quick manual over a puddle helps i can't manual all the way down trails/tracks!!

    either a neoguard style one or a the mucky nutz fender censored .

    the mucky nutz is very discrete but excellent.

    you can quickly make a neoguard out of an old inner tuber and some cable ties, easy peesy and costs virtually nothing but works just as well. But imo, the censored fender 2.0 works better and it stops censored from gettnig to the stanchions. I broke mine in a crash and cba to get a new one; I've got better bike related stuff to spend my money on.

    Thats a pretty good idea with the inner tubes - busted tubes can be used for almost anything!!! really like the look of those mucky nutz ones

    Downtube mudguards are next to useless at anything above walking pace anyway.

    You can also make your own fender censored type out of some thin plastic an cable ties,as that exactly what it is.mines just about vissable on the pics in the sig below.
