Mr Schuster fine mudguard, very fine price! Easy to mount.
Matt Online research led to this purchase and it is safe to say the time is always well spent. Several incidents of crud in my eyes, face and mouth meant one was needed. The design is excellent; very secure rubber O-rings hold it tight, clearance with Fox 36mm, 140mm travel front forks is good. I have only used it on a couple of rides since but there was no splatter and no movement over rough ground. Recommend to all for both the mudguard and Merlincycles.
Mr Amenabar Excellent built and work very well. Tried it on some very wet terrain it was perfect.
Mr Diniz Fabulous front fender, that protects well and it's light enough not to over weight the bike.
Mr Hall Fits like a glove and looks wicked. As usual merlin do it again.
Mr Parry By far the best front guard I've had. The fitting with rubber bands is a great idea. And water/mud splatter is kept below the knees. In fact looks a bit weird coming in from rides with just really dirty feet. 🤣
Mr Colley Very easy fit and well made. It's stopped a lot of crud getting up in your face, but still a lot of spray over the feet which I thought would eliminate
Mr Harvey Absolutely brilliant. Fix on in seconds and zero mud in your eye despite ploughing through muddy puddles. Just need decent rear ones now... Hugely recommended.
Mr Munday This is the front fender I have been looking for. Absolutely brilliant. You can run it really close to the front tire for commuting and then raise it up for off road action so it doesn't clog. A high quality piece of equipment and cheap I thought.
Dirt Shredn I didn't have enough space between my fork's crown and the treads of the plus tire, so couldnt fit the traditional mudguard. This fender solved that issue. Plus, it has massive coverage, so no mud in your face, and I think it looks good on my bike
Mr Higgs Excellent front mudguards, easy to fit on my hybrid mini suspension bike, solid once fitted correctly, and no rattle. Keeps the water away from my eyes whilst riding, and stops down tube getting so muddy.
Mr McGettigan Solid yet light. Very easy to install and not in the way on gnarly trails. Keeps mud away from self and bike.
Mr Cross Fits my Calibre Shadownut perfectly. Keeps all the shit of you when riding & fast to remove. 30 secs & it's off...
Stephen Great product, don’t get any mud on my glasses
PJ An easy fit and doing a grand job of keeping the winter crap off me and the bike. Recommended....
Mr Koek Fits my yari fork ok and keeps all the crud off your face.
Mr Peart Great fender that’s keeping me a lot cleaner than those little flat plastic cable tie jobbies. Took less than a minute to install and less time to take off. Love the fact I’m not wasting cable as this guard uses reusable rubber o rings. Highly recommended in uk winter conditions
Steve Mud free face and glasses. Brilliant.
mulder works good easy to fit as well, had to cut small notch out to clear front brake cable mount then wrap bands around the brake cable, keeps muck off face and around lower headset area, looks pretty good as well.
Rick Seems pretty good so far. Really easy to fit and adjust. Keeps my glasses clean and doesn’t rattle or shake. Works well even on transitions from good surface to wet mud when the speed is higher than just plugging through.
Gavin Very happy with product and service. Fits my 29er perfectly:easy to fit, no rattles or rubbing and provides good protection.
Raj Fits perfect and really catches all the mud. No spray goes in your face and only lower shins and boots get the muck on (which is unavoidable with this type of fender). It's high enough at rear so no chance to catch any high obstacles, front peak is plenty to stop debris from being throw up on your face. Really good peice of kit
Mr Munday A really good item. Fits in seconds and you can position it really low to the tire to stop all the spray. I might even add a flap at the back.
Mr Jana Works great at keeping mud away and didn't once get anything in my eyes in really muddy trails. Only drawback is that when the forks bottom out, the crown hits the rubber guard that sits beind the arch, into the tyre.
Mr Vickers Well worth the money looks pretty cool and it works ! No more crud in my face
Mr Finlay Had to remove the brake cable guide on my Fox 36 as it seems to push the front section off line. Once I did that it works perfectly and it's very easy to fit.
Richard Highly recommended product has massively improved my vision when riding wet muddy trails as speed whereas before i would have had mud spattered glasses - has allowed me to dispense with glasses / goggles. Excellent service and delivery time from Merlin Cycles!
Trigger Easy to fit, better than every other front mudguard I have tried. Five stars.
J Whyte Excellent bit of kit for the winter sludge /trails
Mr Bautista El guardabarros queda colocado perfecto,todo ok!!
Dan Leibie I have now purchased 3 of these, they are the best front mud guard I can find for bikes with front suspension. Two of the bikes have 26" wheels and one is 29". the all fit perfectly, don't know how but they do.
Mr K Fitting was a breeze! Had to tie the brake hose a bit differently, but that's not a problem. It looks the part and there's certainly no more crud coming up my nose while riding. ;)
Mr Rautiainen Very easy to install, stays in place and does its job well.
Mr Reynolds After relying on Topeak MTB front fenders for years and losing them on the trail, I switched to Crud. Good design, very easy to install, and no chance it will pop off the way the Topeak has for me. Great product, glad Merlin carries it and has reasonable shipping to the US. Would get again but hopefully won’t need to for a while.
Mr McNeil Excellent mudguard that keeps spray out of your eyes and feet. Best price and fast delivery too!
Steve Well happy with this. Much better than the standard under the fork crown options. Just used in the rain and mud, excellent. Performs better than expected. Highly recommended.
Mr Phelps Excellent front fender/mud guard, easy set up on the forks and love the close fit to both the wheel and fork as doesn't obscure your view in any way. Recomended
Harry Top product by far the best front fender for mountain bikes. Top Produkt das mit Abstand Beste Frontschutzblech für Mountenbikes.
James Just installed this fender on a Rockshox Bluto running 27.5 x 3.00 tires, coverage is good and fitting it only took a minute.
Anthony The best front mudguard from Crud so far, easy to fit, truly universal and looks good.
Mr Linger Works fantastically! Haven't been able to test it in thick mud (my local trails close when it's too bad) but in light rain and mud, it kept my face and upper body mud free!
Smithy Great product. Easy to fit, fits onto my bos deville fork where countless others don't. Merlin cycles deserve some credit too for their great pricing (cheapest I could find this) and rapid delivery.
Richard Perfect fit on both bikes, works flawlessly, clean face says it all!
BM Absolutely Brilliant :-) Fitted it in minutes and it comes with a few spare bands. It's easy to adjust the height from the tyre so you can easily match the terrain and weather. I would highly recommend this :-)
