    front fender thread

    I just saw Dirtriders thread, and thought I'd be polite and not tag onto it I have the opposite problem where I have to fend off flying grit and spray from my face and eyes in wet conditions. I have a bit of rubber tied between the fork crown and arch, which is good, but doen't quite get it all. Is there a system you guys swear by that is easy to remove, and works well? I hate wearing glasses, as they quickly get fogged and dirty. We normally have very little rain here but this year has been quite wet.

    The fender from "the"

    It's so easy to put on I use it on all 3 bikes-need to buy star nut for btm of each extra fork. I think they were on chainlove for $25. I trim mine to fit brake line. I shoulda bought extra the the other day.

    Crud catcher (down tube), light, easy to remove, the best compromise.

    THE DH front fender (moto style), offers the best protection, but it's not light or easy to remove.

    Toby Henderson Enterprises or www.the-industries.com I used to have one of their front fenders on my old Giant back in the day. It worked pretty well in muddy conditions and yeah, they look "moto"

    Thanks guys. Going by the type of spray I am geting I think the moto style may be the way to go. The star nut fixture sounds good. Do they fit on 29ers ok, or do you need a specific fender? Does the other (crud catcher) fit over down tube cables OK?
