    FSR Fender Worth It?

    For those of you who have had a chance to evaluate the FSR fenders, are they worth the money? Do they only keep mud off the shock, or does it also catch some of the crap that gets stuck to the seatpost and stay? If they are nice, where do you get them for cheap?

    Should be mandatory on the bike. But really only for the shock. Unless you have a dealer having a sale soon, I doubt you'll find them less than what is on specialized.com. I have no doubt it extends the life of the shock seals.

    Ill second the mandatory sentiment, for 14 bucks youd be hard pressed to find a better upgrade for your bike. Getm at Specd.com

    Yup, the fender is well worth the $$ to save your shock. and keep other things clean.

    I never bought it to save the shock. Just to keep it clean and pretty... The things you learn in threads...
    Works very well, btw. I notice below the fender (seat tube) is splattered with mud, but the shock isnt... it does its job well

    Yup, definitely worth it to keep the shock clean, but doesn't help keep much else clean. But then again, what would you expect from a piece that's only like 4"

    Yeah seems like mud real piles up on the seat stay especially on the front derailleur.

    Yep - I will second that. The 'fender' works a treat, but the front mech is totally covered!!!

    Agree with others - for doing it's job (protecting the shock), it does it perfectly for the price.

    I'm going to have to knock something up for my Big Hit as Specialized don't make the guard for it. I use a section of drum skin to protect the main pivot and BB area.

    As you can see, I don't have a front derailleur, but this keeps a lot of crap out of the top of my chainguide. There is another piece that fits on the suspension link and protects the shock bushes and would fill in the gap you see on the first picture.

    had one on both my stumpys. a WORLD of difference in junk thrown on the shock and seatpost. I called spec and asked for $15 why it isn't factory equip from the get go and they said some people don't ride in mud, we like to save plastic and the environment, blah, blah, blah. Bottom line? if it rains where you live and you ride; you need it.

    It's got my vote for a necessary factory piece, as it took 2+ months to get one on both bikes because they were out of stock for so long. Oh well, spec makes a damn fine bike, hard to beotch about them wanting to save the planet.

    If you ride in the mud, get one. It will prolong the life of your shock and make it easier to keep clean. I also fitted a Lizard Skin shock cover http://lizardskins.com/products/view...&page_number=1
    which makes it even easier to keep clean ;-)

    I dont think the Lizard skin cover is a good idea for air shocks that are found on the SJs and enduros. I have no exp w/them but everything Ive heard states that they will "sand" the shaft, not good for air shocks. For coils theres not chance of this to happening.

    If you get the fender it is very effective in keeping the shock clean.

    I made my own for a few pennies. It is taller than the Spec fender and I put it at a steeper angle to "catch" more dirt. I have had it on my bike for more than a year now with no problems at all.

    So Is the Spec fender worth it? Not in my opinion. You can buy a coke from the convenient store. It has a molded plastic container and comes with a refreshing liquid for much less than the cost of a Spec fender.

    Over $2000 for a bike and you cut plastic for a fender and it looks like you cut plastic for a fender. Next thing you are going to see is bra's hanging from seat posts to carry tools and things. Don't take offence I am just joking but the specialized fender looks like it belongs on the bike.

    Yeah, those Lizard Skins are great for trapping in the grit and making sure it rubs against the shaft real good. $14 for a piece of plastic is worth it to circumvent a lot of hassle down the road. Do it man

    if you want to just protect the shock you could also use an inner tube to keep stuff away, I don's have any pics but can get some.

    Both are black plastic
    The spec fender is shiny plastic.
    My fender is a flat black which matches the Spec paint better.
    When I cut this out, it was never meant to be permanent. It just so happens it functions much better than the Spec fender so I just kept it on there.

    BTW, my method actually makes two fenders. Want to buy one

    Carbon fender

    I made my own fender out of carbon. I glued two thin carbon pieces, then cut out the shape I wanted. Useing a heat gun carefully I bent piece into the shape I wanted. Used zip ties to fasten the fender on my bike.

    I just joking. I love the Flat Black. One of the best colors on a mountain bike. It would be nice if the specialized fender had length options. It needs just to be alittle longer.If you did get the Specialized fender though all you would have to do is take some real fine steel wool and rub the plastic to make it Flat Black.

    Yea it's worth it.

    It's only about $20 to protect a $500 shock.

    Now you're arguing flat vs. shiny--are you serious?? You have a $2,000+ bike and don't want to shell out $15 for the fender??

    I'm not trying to be a jerk, but come on dude--yours looks like a plastic bottle. If you're happy with it then more power to you--it was an interesting idea that works--but don't try to justify it by saying it looks better. I mean, it's $15, it's not like your idea saved a bunch of $$

    My dad will do this kind of stuff. He'll wrap electrical tape around his chainstay to save the $9 wrap.
    I hope you have a big trunk... 'cuz I'm puttin' my bike in it.

    Maybe he can afford a $2000 bike because he saves himself $15 here and there on home-made fenders. Maybe he just doesn't want to spend $15 on a fender.
    My bike (pictured in post #11) cost than $2000 and I made a fender from a drum skin, a used drum skin that somebody else had thrown away. I also saved money by using old inner tubes and electricians tape (OK, that was new) to protect my stays.

    Ya its kinda ghetto, but if he digs it thats cool. Im kinda skeptical that it works better than the oem unless its the shear size keeping his back clean in the mud which isnt an issue where I ride. If its muddy the trail is closed.

    I think its funny how he refers to the coke bottle and how he not only got a better fender but a "refreshing liquid "-yuk, at least he got the liquid part right.

    So you refer to my post, but it would appear you did not read it. I never called him out for making it. I just mentioned that his insinuating it looked better was a little far fetched. In my first post I said "more power to you" and that he "had an interesting idea that worked". I just brought up the $$ because let's face it--saving $15 here and there is not going to buy you a Stumpy any time soon. I don't see where there is any bashing in that.

    And I am well within my right to disagree with his opinion that at $15, it's not worth it when you can just use "a coke bottle" in his words--from his very first post. The Specialized fender looks OEM--a cut piece of plastic, or carbon fiber, or cardboard does not. I never said they weren't good ideas, just that the claim that they look better is a bit far fetched, in my opinion---which coincidentally is what the original poster asked for.

    Next time, get your facts straight before you go on the offensive bro.

    You'll notice, if you read my post, that I didn't say that you'd said it wasn't a good idea. Neither did I say that you weren't within your rights to disagree. What you did say was, to quote, "You have a $2,000+ bike and don't want to shell out $15 for the fender??". Saying things like, again to quote, "I'm not trying to be a jerk, but...", won't always cover your back, and "If you're happy with it then more power to you" is generally just a polite/underhand way of expressing incredulity and questioning somebody's reasoning.

    My point, seeing as how you missed it, is so what if he cuts up a tub instead of paying out $15? And who are you to question his motives, whatever they are? If you don't like the fender, don't make one, but don't give him any grief, however underhand, for his choice.

    Next time, sort your comprehension skills before getting on the offensive, bro.

    Wow.... I never expected this kind of reception. Myself and others have posted homemade fenders before on the Spec forum and always received praise for our hard work and engineering. I don't know why this was so different. I built a fender using a wetwipes canister. It cost me a few pennies for zip ties and a little of my time. It functions better than the factory Spec fender. So why the heck do so many people have a problem with it?

    I am in the process of building an LED bike light. It is only going to cost me around $100 and yet perform significantly better than most lights on the market. With the attitude of some posters on here, since I spent $2000 (actually only $1600) on my Stumpy, I shouldn't be putting on some homemade light. I should pay more for something that performs worse just because it looks "factory". What the heck kind of thought process is that?!?!

    Pay the $15 for the Spec fender. It doesn't matter to me. I was just showing that there are alternatives out there that perform better and can be made very inexpensively. If I bought a carbon S-Works Stumpy, I would still make another fender and install it.

    I was going to build some bridges for some local singletrack. I think I will contact Home Depot instead and ask them to build them for me just so I will feel better about paying the high price for labor

    As far as the original question. My answer is still no.

    Just make sure you build those bridges for the the local singletrack out of quality wood and not partical board that colapses. The partical board is alot cheaper so think twice.

    I'm with you on that. I used your pics before to make fenders for both of my FSR's from Folger's coffee can lids. They're the exact shape I wanted and even happened to be black.
    I'm as much pro-specialized as anyone else here but if you can save a few bucks, why not?

With the attitude of some posters on here, since I spent $2000 (actually only $1600) on my Stumpy, I shouldn't be putting on some homemade light. I should pay more for something that performs worse just because it looks "factory". What the heck kind of thought process is that?!?!

    Pay the $15 for the Spec fender. It doesn't matter to me. I was just showing that there are alternatives out there that perform better and can be made very inexpensively. If I bought a carbon S-Works Stumpy, I would still make another fender and install it.

    I was going to build some bridges for some local singletrack. I think I will contact Home Depot instead and ask them to build them for me just so I will feel better about paying the high price for labor

    As far as the original question. My answer is still no.
    I don't recall anyone having a problem with the fender--I remember saying it was an interesting idea that works.
    I hope you have a big trunk... 'cuz I'm puttin' my bike in it.

    I've also considered making my own mud flap for my 04 FSR, but since I didn't have the materials ready, so I went with a different approach.

    I basically cut a $0.01 party balloon at the tip and the neck to make a roughly conical cylinder. Then I unbolt the piston end of the shock, slip the baloon over it, zip tie the big end to the air cylinder and the little end as close to the piston bolt hole as possible. Then bolt the whole thing back on. The baloon is zip tied so there's a small amount of stretch. There is absolutely no effect on the shock/linkage operation. It's water/mudproof, and lasts about 3 months, and virtually unlimited color choices. Speaking of choices and stretchy rubber products, I'm willing to go out on a limb to say that a condom would be even better than a balloon!!!

    I just did a mud ride last weekend. My fork and drive train were so clogged with mud that the bike basically stopped. Guess how much actually stuck to the balloon? Just a smudge mark!

    Total weight 3 grams. (That's less than the weight of mouth piece on your Camelbak.)
    Total cost $0.07
    Total fabrication and assembly time 5 minutes
    Total time reading and posting to this thread 10 minutes.

    Plus I think it's a rip off for my LBS to charge me $19.95 for a piece of plastic and 3 zip ties and a whole lot of plastic packaging. Come to think of it, I bet you could just use the plastic packaging by itself! In fact, the amount of PETE clam shell packaging the average family throws out after Christmas would supply a lifetime of FSR fendering needs.

    On my SJ (08 S-Works) the shock is positioned inboard of the seat-post. Is there a fender available for this - do I need one? On the Specialized site the fender they offer is supposed to cover the 08 models but the illustration is for the older shock layout!
