Musgaurd Bike Fender

Love it or hate it, Kickstarter has given the cycling community dozens of great projects. Among them is the Musguard, a super minimal fender that attaches to your seatube with velcro, and can be rolled up and stashed on your frame once the sun comes out to play. The only caveat is that it’s low slung profile works best on bikes without a rear brake.

The  fender is die cut from a recyclable polypropylene (PP) plastic sheet and weighs only 40 grams. You can pick one up here in a wide variety of colors for $29.

Hit play if you’re into 80s kicks and hipster kids. More interested in a neat way to stay dry ? Then just skip ahead to the one minute mark.


  1. Only problem I see is durability. Those creases in the plastic will eventually split the more it’s removed and installed.

  2. That’s more that a tear, the sponge soaks up water and if your ultra lucky you get moss growing out of the back of your saddle.

    I have had plenty of cars that were “classics” basically because they were so old and sh1t.

  3. $29 ?! Are they insane?

    Ass Savers is currently putting their stuff on sale and I believe a new design is coming. They offer cheap shipping too.

  4. “Should also work well on non-fixed disc-brake bikes provided they have a seat stay bridge.”

    I was just thinking that this would be a more elegant solution for my Crux Disc than the current seatpost-mounted atrocity that’s on there.
