I hate fenders and as a Texan, that is ok. The rainy days to sunny days ratio is skewed. We’re in an extreme drought, so why would I put fenders on my Geekhouse Frontage Road Tourer? Pffft….
That said, I hate getting sprayed up the ‘crack with dirty water from the road when we do get a moist morning. Which is why I love the Ass Savers Brookshield.
See more below!
These simple mudguards are meant to protect you and your derrière, not your riding mates’ faces and not your bottles, legs or feet.
This thin, yet rigid piece of plastic clips onto your Brooks saddle rails.
… and catches any upspray.
If rain is in the forecast, I just drop it in my backpack, bar bag, pannier or conveniently just store it under your saddle. They’re inexpensive, light and best of all, not full fenders. If you don’t ride a Brooks, Ass Savers are also available in the Original, which fits just about every saddle rail.
