Mucky Nutz, MUG GUARDS


The MugGuard is available in both 400mm and 600mm lengths. They fit 26 inch, 27.5 inch and 29 inch wheels with tires up to three inches wide. It's a must have to keep yourself and your bike caked with dirt while out on the muddy trails or roads. Is secured in place by Velcro or you can use zip ties as well.






Winter riding is just around the corner. Trails might be muddy.  Rule of thumb is, if your tires leave a mark, don’t ride on the trail. However, if you ride muddy roads of course you’ll want to avoid getting sprayed with mud or water, not only keeping you clean but your bike as well. 

Mucky Nutz, MUG GUARDS are just what you’re needing. These work on 26, 27 1/2  and 29 inch wheels. They work with boosted forks and tires up to 3 inches wide. The tread on your tire is going to grab on to the mud,  dirt or gravel and fling it around, The MUG GUARD will keep it from hitting you or your bike. They come in two lengths, 400 mm and 600 mm.   The 400mm or short MUG GUARD weighs in at 75 grams, with the Long MUG GUARD weighing in at 105 grams.  They help keep mud out of your forks stanchions.  They attach very easily to the bridge and fork of your bike. 


They come with re-usable Velcro to make them easy to put on and take off not only for cleaning but for transportation if needed. Each fender comes with 40 inches of Velcro. I cut into two 5 inch pieces, I use on the top, securing it to the forks bridge, and two 10 inch pieces to either side, going down the fork. They can also be attached using zip ties if you want to do it that way too and you see them being used or a longer period of time.

Running shorts with compression tights


Running this winter, in this set of compression tights with shorts is very comfortable.  Wearing a size 36 US pair of jeans, I ordered the 2XL and they fit perfect.  They are easy to put on and I love the string around the waist, securing them. The cell phone pocket, down the right upper leg, seems to stick out from under the shorts area. I am not a fan of running with my smartphone, so I don’t think I will even be using this option ever, but it’s there in case I need it. There is a loop on the back left of the shorts for holding a towel. I would use this option not for running but more for walking around the gym keeping my sweat towel close by. 







They offer full range of motion. The draw string can be used to keep them tight around your waist if needed. The leggings are 3/4 so they don’t reach all the way to your socks or ankles. I like the fit and with chilly weather will help keep warm out running or walking. There is a rear zippered pocket, if you want to secure money or car keys while out and about.  Look closely at the sizing chart as they are sized for a foreign country.

What a major confidence booster.




One week after snapping a pedal off my mountain bike, I got a solid great ride in.  I switched back to clip-less pedals. There is always the debate as to which is better, platform or clip-less pedals. I am used to riding with clip-less on both my road and mountain bike. 

The main reason I switched first off is because I don’t have an extra set of platform pedals in my stash of gear. 
Before the pedal snapped off, I was having a ton of issues with pedal strikes. It started getting to me mentally not being able to do climbs or trails I know I can do and have done previously.  




I was very excited when I was able to complete a full loop in my favorite mountain bike park for training. The entire 15 mile loop I never put a foot down or had to unclip from the pedals. 

What a major confidence booster. 




Before the ride I made some air shock adjustments after finding out my rear shock was set up to squishy. Added more air to it an adjusted the rebound.  


The adjustments and set up come just in time for a 200 mile challenge I have opted into this winter.

TriForce with symmetrical and asymmetrical loads

Impact and variability while on the mountain bike.  Here I demonstrate it with a jump squat, working the legs, shoulders and arms along with my core. 




I enjoy using the TriForce.  It helps my body react to counteracting movements to stay in control. With the different weights that can be moved around and added or removed, it always provides a great stability workout I am looking for. 
Here is a simple standard workout I have incorporated in my use of the TriForce. 
Using the stability ball to stretch out on and allow for my arms, chest and upper abs open up after being hunched over my handlebars on a training ride. 
The lunge with raising the TriForce above my head gives a great full body stretch and recovery. 


TriForce gives you the versatility to train for the demands of your sport with symmetrical and asymmetrical loads.   rebrand.ly/0b2m4e
