Just thought I’d post my little addition for the muddy season here in the UK
Here’s the item: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=11679
I crimped a couple of eyelets through a folded over Velcro tie and attached to the mudflat bolts, and repeated for the other bolt. It took a bit of compressing with a pair of pliers to get the nut and bolt to reach, but once the thread took I got it all nice and tight.
The two Velcro straps attach easily to the Oregon’s frame and I also used two (green ) cable ties to stop the Velcro attachments riding up the V frame struts.
I feel this should provide a decent degree of mud protection. It’s just a tough piece of (expensive!) leather really, but beats the clip-on mud guards I’ve seen - they always seemed to me too plasticy, stiff and long.
Added bonus, is that the Brooks flap looks kind of stylish - well, it’s my kind of retro style anyway Yep, this is probably over-kill for a very small area of enhancement, but I thought I’d share it.
Pictures to follow (can only add one at a time)
For all riding in muddy conditions - enjoy
