Product Description

It's a dirty job but Fendor Bendor Big gets the job done! Maximum protection for gravel or MTB.

Key Features:

  • Easy to mount, no tools required
  • Perfect for Gravel or MTB
  • Super lightweight, only 61 grams
  • Longlasting, durable materials
  • Suitable for tire widths between 32-55 mm

FENDOR BENDOR Big is ideal for bikepacking. Strong enough to handle really muddy conditions but flexible enough to not break while being bashed around. The width is optimized for tire sizes commonly used by gravel cyclists. Mounted close to the rear tire it will protect your saddle bag as well as the rider from road muck and water. It attaches to virtually any bike in seconds, without the use of tools.

Most bikepacking gear is not 100% waterproof and a good set of fenders can save you from the misery of having a wet sleeping bag or clothes at the end of the day. Even if your gear is fully waterproof, you will appreciate the lack of mud on your bags when you stop to get a jacket out or when you bring them into the tent after a rough day in the saddle. The full kit adds less than 85 grams to your total weight, making it ideal for ultralight bikepacking.

Specification:

  • Measures: 555x80 mm (effective)
  • Weight: 61 g
  • Material: 1 mm PP (Polypropylene)

Fit: The Fendor Bendor fits all frames with standard seat stays. It's self supportive and doesn't require support from the brake bridge or the seat stays. It can also be mounted directly on a seat post (as low as possible for best effect). The Fendor Bendor will not fit if you have monostay frame or center pull brake.

Prefold: The scoring lines along the fender need to be folded hard in order to give the it the necessary rigidity and strength. Take extra care to fold down the outer edges to make sure your Fendor Bendor is functioning properly.

Frame Protection: Each Fendor Bendor is delivered with a small set of transparent 3M polyurethane protection stickers. Use these to prootect your seat stays from scratches from the fender.

Storage: The Fendor Bendor Big can be folded in half for easy storage in a backpack or strapped on your bikepacking gear. 

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Rear Mudguard Guide

 

Rear Mudguard Guide

Why use mudguards?

A rear bike mudguard can make a huge difference in the quality of your ride. Keeping the water and mud away from you and your bike will keep you warm and comfortable while protecting your bike from grit and cutting down maintenance. Luckily there are many types available to fit every style of bike.

While full-length mudguard sets are the prefered option for road and hybrid commuters, leisure cyclists and mountain bikers have a few different options for rear mudguards. Front mudguards are also available for all types of hybrid, gravel and MTB's


What type of rear mudguard will fit my bike?

A full-length mudguard will give the most protection, but the traditional style needs attachment points on the frame and forks. This style is suited to recreational road and hybrid bikes. For more information, please see our mudguard guide.

If your bike doesn't have the mounting points for a full-length mudguard set, there are still plenty of other options available.

Frame mounted rear mudguards

Mountain bikes, especially full-suspension frames, will not have any mounting points and eyelets for traditional full-length mudguards. A traditional mudguard is not very good off-road as they rattle on and rub on rough terrain. Luckily, there are rear mudguards that securely attach to the frame using zip-ties or Velcro strips.

This style is the most effective at keeping the crud away. The closer the mudguard to the tyre, the less chance any mud or water can escape and cover your body and bike. Once mounted tightly this style is solid and is the best for mountain bikers.

Seatpost mounted rear mudguards

A rear mudguard mounted to the seatpost is secure and effective. A universal design that uses a clamp to mount around the seatpost. There are a few different designs but all work in a very similar way. The closer the mudguard can be to the tyre, the more effective it is at stopping the spray from being thrown up by the back wheel.

This is a universal design, so long as your bike has a saddle height higher than the top of the back wheel and there is some exposed seatpost for the clamp then this type of rear guard will fit. A frame-mounted type will be best for mountain bikers who ride rough terrain, but for the majority of leisure cyclists, a seatpost mounted mudguard will be effective and easy to install.

Saddle mounted mudguards

While not as effective as a frame or saddle mounted mudguard, a simple saddle mounted mudguard has many advantages. Very easy to install, this type of mudguard fits between the saddle and the seat clamp. It slots neatly around the saddle rails with a folding design to lock into place. You will need a traditional saddle that has two parallel rails to fit this type of mudguard.

There are wider versions to give more protection and narrower options for those with thin road bike tyres. This design, though slight, will keep the worst of the spray away from your saddle and bottom. They are very light, not expensive, quick to install and very modest when riding. You will barely notice a simple rear saddle mounted mudguard.

Summary

Mountain biking in the mud with a mudguard

While perhaps not the best visual addition to your bike, a rear mudguard is the best way to keep your back and bottom dry through the rain and mud.

Mountain bikers now have a good, rattle-free solution with a frame-mounted mudguard. Leisure cyclists on bikes with no eyelets or mounting points can benefit from a seatpost mounted guard, while road riders and those who want the most inconspicuous and light option will enjoy the dry feeling thanks to a saddle mounted mudguard.
