    It's amazing what you can do with the crudest of tools.

    Pop bottle can be used to keep the C*** off all the delicate/hard to clean parts of your bike. I was looking into grundge guards etc, but a 2 liter and some zip ties work great.
    1 piece on the front fender, 1 on the down tube and 1 on the front of the rear fender (keeps FD clean).
    I extended the front fender with another fender as well. Pretty well 0 cleaning time even after 2-3 hr rides.

    Actually for my hardtail I was gong to try a slight mod.
    Instead of having the concave part following the inside curve of the back fender (facing backwards),
    I was not going to have a back fender and have the concave part facing the front.
    It can form a little "umbrella umbrella" over the FD and be zip tied to the down tube.
    The great thing with 2 liters are they are cheap and really easy to cut with a box cutter type blade
    and you almost can't see the pieces since they are clear.

    I hate when the rear tire throws mud all over the FD. This looks like a good way to keep that from happening.
