Works really well on my SC Tallboy III with 29" wheels
I'm in Portland Oregon, so a lot of wet trails to be had :-(
I had a similar fender for my older 26" bike, it had only one adjustment point and it didn't work well as I couldn't position the fender low enough.
But with the two adjustment points on this fender, on my SC Tallboy III with 29" x 2.35" tires, I can get it very close to the tire. And then the fender is long enough and wide enough to block most of the mud and water coming off the rear wheel (probably 90% coverage). You'd need a fender that was closer to the tire and longer (mainly on the front part) to get near 100% coverage.
The little front part can also be separately moved (the short grey area on the front of the fender) giving additional coverage.
I had to mount this below the moving portion of my dropper post (Rock Shox Reverb Stealth), but above the frame - on the fixed part of the dropper post that has a stepped width, but it still stayed on without problems.
Hint: When installing, deflate your rear shock so you can fully compress it, and then adjust the fender height and pivots to give maximum coverage without bumping your tire. Spin the rear wheel while doing this, so you know the knobby tires aren't bumping the fender.
Otherwise - based on my actual experience - you're almost certain to install the fender too low, so that it bumps the tire when the shock is fully compressed.Pros:
Gives good coverage
Is a bit high off the tire, since you have to attach it to the seat post (and not the back stays).
It won't fit well on all seat posts or frames.
It won't work well with longer travel shocks (the Tallboy has 110mm of travel)Would Buy Again:
