I didn't mean to offend you! Sorry for misunderstanding. Yup, a couple of my friends use the same one except for the colour. It keeps your a** and back clean. It's poor when you ride in a group as it doesn't protect others from water from the wheel. There are better fenders, some made especially for road bikes, but this is cheap and can be adjusted pretty quickly to different bikes.

Fenders like that are ok for keeping ones own behind from getting too cold and wet. I've been using an even smaller one from Ass Savers (model Smart Ass) this autumn.

Yep, whether we like it or not, Greipel has chosen the sensible way of going about things. Don't get me wrong, I dislike fenders as much as the next fender hater, but they do have the odd upside to them, too. Cold spray into the crack/chamois can actually be downright painful. Quite a few pros seem to go for fenders of some kind when they can / need to (doesn't mean everyone else has to, of course).

Re: Katusha

If pro cycling wasn't fukked up and weird enough already, the UCI just did it again...without any explanation! Absurd has been left in the rear view mirror, only a cliff can be ahead.

Cause no other team had a doping positive or massive scandal this year. UCI drawing the line in the sand again...THIS time we mean it!
