    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality rope attachment I recommend you do not buy this item. Opt for the slightly more expensive Topeak Defender M2. The problem with this item is the way it attaches to the seat post. It loops round using a nylon rope section that then secures via a twist and latch mechanism. In order to get a tight fit that prevents the defender from moving, on even lightly potholed city road surfaces, the rope part rips. I used this for one ride, went to adjust it when I got home as it had moved around slightly, rope snapped. Not fit for purpose, not sufficiently durable. I recommend you go for the Topeak Defender M2 if you need it to match a front Topeak mudguard. If this happens to you, just return the item to the store, explain it's a defective item and that you have the right to exchange it for an M2, which will cost you about £4 more. I strongly recommend you do not purchase this item. Happy mud free cycling!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless guard Bought this to replace a cheaper Halfords own brand mud guard that had broken after only three weeks. Seemed fine at first, attached as indicated, bike on the car and drove to the trails. Fell off after 3 miles cycling. Put it back on, came loose after a few more miles. Bike back on the car, hit the road to come home and had to pull off the motorway because I could see in the mirror it had started to come loose again and spun round 90° after approx 5 miles and would have come off. Absolutely no use to me if I have to tighten it up all the time. Had the bracket to attach actually been bolted on rather than fabric and a turning wheel it would probably be a great mud guard, but without, it's useless.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Defender RX Rear Guard Reports of weak attachment fittings, but I modified it to fit a recumbent so removed the attachment bracket. That aside it's great value, looks smart and has a wide fit for fat tyres.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst mudguard ever made in the history of mudguards ever. I bought this earlier today, and immediately after buying it the problemsame started. Firstly, it is impossible to fit securely enough for it not to keep sliding down the seat post. Secondly, I had to keep moving it back into place every 5 minutes because the fitting as so bad. Finally, 30 minutes into its first (and last) use, it came off completely and snapped under my wheel! Complete waste of money! Do not buy it!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY!!!!!! This "product" is the worst "mudguard" I have ever used!! Installing was impossible. The rubber to KEEP it from slipping around on your seat post DID NOT KEEP IT FROM SLIPPING. VERY hard to get on and I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT !!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but one flaw Overall, serves its purpose as a mudguard, looks good and is pretty solid. However! It's only solid once you perform some DIY modding. The fabric loop that is supposed to tighten on the seat post & hold the guard in place isn't any good. The fabric is fine, but the tightening mechanism isn't sturdy enough to keep it tight, even if you manage to tighten it enough in the first place. Best to remove this, easily done, and replace with a jubilee clip that you can tighten a heck of a lot more solidly and securely. Once I did this, the mudguard is perfect. I installed a black jubilee clip to blend in better with the bike. Hope this helps.
