Let's see your muddy / used All-Mountain Bikes

Working in the bike trade, I ALWAYS like to see muddy, dirty, scratched and worn bikes, because it means they are getting used...nothing more depressing to bike shop staff when customers bring in their year-old bike and its looking *brand new*...the shame!

Here's my Devinci after a muddy morning ride, the snow has finally melted in South-East England and turned the local trails into a mud bath (I think I prefer the snow!)

hampsteadbandit - how do you like the Crud Catcher? I'll be testing one out this season along with an RRP Neoguard.

Crudcatcher?

its pretty good - I use the new version that was redesigned by Pete Tomkins' (Mr. Crud) son Jamie Tomkins who is a qualified vehicle designer and has worked for big car companies like VW!

He took the original design of the front and rear Crud catchers and updated them, both are substantially improved on the older designs - especially the rear which is much simpler to fit and more durable


I still use glasses (clear at night, and shaded during day) when riding, as the front Crud guard will not stop everything getting thrown up Wink

Thanks for the reply. I have the newest version as well and, like you, will continue to wear glasses/goggles just in case. I'm hoping that between the Crud Catcher and Neoguard there will be minimal debris flying at my face.

with both the Crud and NeoG there will be practically nothing flying at your face!!
