      Comments about TOPEAK DeFender RX Bike Fender, Rear:

      Price is fair considering how cheaply made it is. It just won't stay centered with wheel, or drops down and hits the wheel. At this point it is so chewed up, after a few days use, that I doubt they would take it back. Would recommend something more stable that won't drop down with each bump or jump.

        As hard as tried, over and over, I could not get the product to mount in a fashion to stay in place. The mounting mechanism is over designed IMO. Rough singletrack mountain biking knocked it off everytime. Might work for road riding, commuting, or light trail purpose but not for mine.

          I've used it for light unpaved trails and it held up great. I don't know if it'll stay in position on rougher terrain but it should if you secure it tightly. Sometimes I'll accidentally kick it when getting on or off the bike and it slides out of place very easily. I haven't had it move while riding though.

            Great fender, easy to install, right on the seat post. Gives a good amount of coverage as well. Had to adjust it a couple of times on my first ride to figure out the right amount of tension to keep it from moving on the off-road part of my commute. To be expected though. Overall great product.

            Comments about TOPEAK DeFender RX Bike Fender, Rear:

            I think it is a good product in terms of keeping my back free of mud, but it is hard to install based on the pictures. I still don't know if I installed it correctly. I think an easier mechanism for attaching to the seat or better directions would be helpful. Overall, a good product that does what it says it will!

              Use it for light biking/commuting. Works great but tends to go akimble if it rains and the the rubber ring loses traction.
