Musguard Rollable Bike Fender: Never Get Splashed Again!
June 4th, 2013
Most of the time, you don’t need a bicycle fender except the few times that it rains when you’re out and about. We all know that when it starts to pour, your wheel will send lots of dirty water all over your rear end, which can get really annoying.
The Musguard is a very simple, removable bicycle fender that can be rolled up and stored on your frame or in one of your pockets. It weighs about 35g, and requires no tools or special mounts to install. It’s die-cut from recyclable polypropylene plastic sheets. From what I can tell, the concept works best for bikes without a rear brake caliper, and probably works best with a disc brake.
The project was launched through Kickstarter, and with 17 days of funding left, it’s amassed $21,000 out of a $10,000 goal, so it will be fully funded. You’ll need to pledge at least $20(USD) to get your own.
