    Any one try those Ass Savers fenders?

    Got you covered.Ass Savers

    Thought about it. Very straightforward design and setup. Only thing I am questioning is the effectiveness, even though they've been seen used in Milan-SanRemo.

    Also wondering anyone has anything to say about the lightweight vs. regular model. I know the difference is 0.3mm but how has that worked out for anyone who has used it? Same price so I'm figuring, why not?

    Well, I used to have a "ghetto" bottle fender I hooked up to my saddle likewise and it worked somewhat but not perfectly.

    It gets most of the spray... but it's nothing compared to full proper fenders. So from my answer, you should know what you get. 0.3mm should be pretty negligible for skunk tail coverage overall.

    If you're talking about a saddle pack, then it should be fine. Might get extra muddy though with the fender installed. If it's your other sack, I would go see a doctor

    How about something like this?

    It may be smart and minimalistic but it's not all that elegant if you ask me.

    So they have a lightweight version now. I guess they realized that the standard model is maybe to thick/stiff. My standard model came in at 15g so the weight savings will be minimal. Regarding the effectiveness, a few drops still find a way to my back, but my bottom is considerably drier.

    Thanks (and everyone else who responded)

    They said the "lightweight" (9 grams) version was a production mistake when accidentally using thinner material. Hence why in one color and in limited quantities. Started to become more inclined to the regular model, just not sure what color I want.

    Buy 3 and it's free shipping. I'm in for 1 if we can find a 3rd... unless you're buying 2.

    I've got one. It works pretty well and I also cut it to slide it into the sleeve under my Bontrager saddle wedge, which stopped the bag getting so wet. Only issue is that it will flap around in very strong winds (I do however live in Scotland!).

    eh, could it really work as a group buy? Pretty sure they're implying all 3 go to one destination.

    from your posts I can figure that we live and/or ride in the same area so it would be a matter of splitting the shipment once it gets delivered. (yeah i know it would be a savings of just $4.67).

    eh, not to rub off the wrong way but the effort in splitting could actually result in a loss for us.
