    Mudhugger Fat fender on Mastodon

    No link to the company, just posting for info.

    As it's not specifically mentioned on the MH website if their Mudhugger Fat fits the Manitou Mastodon I emailed to check, this is their reply;

    Hi,Yes it does you can fit via the leg tabs alone or add new fitting holes to utilise the brace bar for extra support.
    Regards Bruce and Jay
    What a perfect waste of time

    I use T'aint Muddy fenders on the front and they work well. I flip it over so that the logo is on the bottom side.

    fyi, any fender that attaches to the mastodon arch and protrudes forward of the arch, WILL get broken off when the fork is bottomed out. i broke both of my RRP Fat Guards on both bikes hucking...

    you can only run a shorty fender, towards the back. I cut one of mine in half, and will test it tomorrow.

    The same would be true with a Bluto except the rearward piece would brake off at bottom out, correct?

    I've run mine for 2 winters and I just run higher air pressures so I don't bottom the fork out. I don't ride the bike as hard in the winter as I do in the summer.

    not sure, as i never ran a fender when i had a bluto. I do not think the crown goes past the arch on the bluto like the way it does on the mastodon. the Don' is essentially a guillotine when it bottoms out...

    i used to think the same, but squirrel when i see something shiny and BAM! broken fender...

    as you can see, the crown hits the fender before the fork bottoms out ~20mm suspension travel remaining


    i traced the crown where it hit the fender, then cut the line. I test fit it, but it still had some interference. i trimmed it till it fit.



    he is what is left of the fender back on the fork-



    fyi, i recycled the old fender, and fitted it to the rear of the bike. some colored duct tape to fix the damage and she was good to go...

    ^^^I was going to suggest Beaver guard also, just don’t expect the same delivery as Amazon, if I recall it took two weeks for me to receive mine, and I'm just over the border here in Michigan…
