    Mud crutch or a fender

    Folks, it's wet! Has not stopped raining for ever.
    I'm done with the wet, muddy face.
    What should I use? The RF mud crutch fabric thing or something like a mucky nuts fender?
    The locals say the crutch is the way to go.

    I have a Mudhugger front for winter and still get a bit of mud on the face, but it really helps keep the fork stanchions clean.

    i use a crud catcher on a couple frames (skinny tubed steel frames) for every day riding. keeps the mud out of my mouth. I also have a SKS Shockboard front fender which blocks everything! quickly and easily removable. really great system, it's much more like a full fender if you need one.

    of the two you listed i would favor the mucky nuts, but have no experience with either. the crutch looks like an odd system, not sure of it's effectiveness or what the drawbacks might be?

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    Mucky Nuts keeps the mud out of your face. Highly recommend.
    Life is easy. Figure out the price of whatever it is you want, then pay that price.
