StarStarStarStarStar Keeps your butt dry and your back clean

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Simple, rugged, easy to take on and off, reasonably light, practically indestructible. Keeps mud and stuff from getting flung onto your back. Helps keep mud from getting into the face of someone behind you.

Cons

Doesn't keep mud from getting flung forward onto your seat tube and bottom bracket. More complicated and heavier than the Mud shovel front fender. * Those are reasonable trade-offs in my mind, since you need a more complicated and heavy wrap around fender to do those things.

Other Thoughts

I have both the front and read mud shovels and think they're great. I love the simplicity and ruggedness. They don't keep everything clean, but they help a lot and they're really easy to attach and remove.

StarStarStarStarStar Pretty good, can't think of a way to improve

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Keeps mud off the main part of the front of the bike (not the chainrings or bottom bracket), Very durable, reasonably light.

Cons

Doesn't keep mud off the bottom bracket or chainrings - understandable because it has to be narrow at the bottom to make room for your feet. Can't completely keep mud that flies high at speed from getting back to you (your face area). I'm OK with all that because it greatly reduces this.
It's wide, so will slow you in a headwind or high speed ride (not really a concern on my Fat bike).

Other Thoughts

This seems like the best solution for the front if you don't want a tire hugging fender that's mounted to the fork. It's really simple, can be snapped off if you don't want to use it, and easily adapts to many bikes.

StarStarStarStarStar A few kinks to work out

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Light
Wide
Long

Cons

Rotates on Seat Post- cannot get strap pulled tight enough to keep it from rotating

DO NOT LEAVE IT ATTACHED IF YOU DRIVE WITH BIKE ON CAR RACK- WIND WILL UNSNAP THE FENDER

2 piece design?

Other Thoughts

Definitely keeps the muck off, when it stays in place.

StarStarStarStarStar Best fattie fender out there

by
Ownership: two weeks
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Quick installation
Good coverage

Cons

Somewhat fragile and easily comes unsnapped

StarStarStarStarStar Awesome!

by
Ownership: two weeks
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

I've had this fender a couple of weeks and ridden in the mud several times with it. It has been great in keeping the muck off my backside. If you have a fat bike, I highly recommend this fender!

Cons

Getting the bracket tight enough around the seatpost can be a challenge. If you don't get it just right, the fender will swing around and not cover the tire. It also appears to be a bit delicate and probably won't stand up to a lot of abuse.
