Mudguard recommendation for Modern(ish) front suspension bike


Roberts Fan
Hi all,

I need some mudguards for my Giant Talon 1, I currently have the Crud Catcher ones that fit on the front downtube and on the seat-post but these only catch a little of the mud as the front does not turn with the wheel and the rear is too far away from the tyre to be effective.

Looking for any views/real world experience with any. I am determined to ride through this winter so need some that are very good.

I have seen quite a few in online stores but wanted real opinions.

Thanks in advance.

Mudhugger work pretty well, they do a front and a rear. Front is good but I've not tried the rear one, looks like it would work well though.

Mucky nutz are OK, but don't accomodate quite as wide a tyre as they say. Should be OK up to about 2.4 inch.

Zefal Deflector FM60. Attaches to the underside of the fork crown, works on suspension or rigid, easy to remove and reattach as needed.
