Portland Design Works Mud Shovel 6.5 Rear Fender
The Portland Design Works Mud Shovel 6.5 Rear Fender was designed specifically for fat bikes - they're extra long and wide to block the muck, snow or sand you'll ride through on your next fat bike adventure.
Made of heavy-duty polymer, the Mud Shovel 6.5 Rear Fender is super lightweight but sturdy enough to take years of bad weather abuse. The fender mounts to your seatpost using adjustable rubber straps for a secure fit.

Excellent origami inspired design. Looks cool, fits and works perfect on my Salsa Beargrease. So convenient to be able to button it on or off...I got the camo version and it matches my gunmetal grey/orange frame almost perfect. I get lots of Whoa! that's sweet compliments.
Lets face it, your fat bike allows you to ride when conditions are not conducive to your 'regular weather bike'. Conditions are usually snowy, wet and sloppy or soft terrain where you have the chance of getting off your bike with a 'racing stripe' up your back. Who wants to clean the car seat of mud, sand and water after your ride? The Mud-Shovel is wide enough to cover my 4.5" fat tire, long enough to avoid that racing stripe. Easy on, easy off and the rubberized adjustable strap keeps it firmly in place on the seat post. I personally don't like the look of a fender on any of my bikes, but the trade off of a clean back is worth it. Rode with it for one winter season so far and this is the best of the fenders I have for any of my bikes - it stays put once its on, no slipping, drooping and doesn't twist around on the seatpost.
I only use the fender on rainy days or when the road is wet from recent rain. It is very easy to put on and take off and does the job. No more dirt, water and mud streaks up my back
