'fender like' guard to shield front derailer??
Looking for a fender like device that would shield the front derailer from mud and debris being kicked off the rear tire. Something that would run from the frame near the crank up to the upper bracket (where the rear brake would mount).
Anyone know of something like that??
I have seen people rig up things like that, a thick piece of poly (crazy carpet) and some zip ties.
but in the end why you still have to clean the bike, and my FD has never quite working, even with the tires jammed to a stop with mud.
I don't really have an issue making something work if there is no commercial product available.
