The Twinpac consists of the full size Crudcatcher and Raceguard for maximum offroad protection
Seeing as Crud had updated the Raceguard, Crud thought they might as well do a number on the CRUDCATCHER as well. They basically took the futuristic shape of the old ZX Crudcatcher, and crafted a soft nose on it. While they were at it they put some protective cushioning between the frame and the blade, and moved the fixing lugs to accommodate fatter frame tubes.
That’s all there is to this one.
Updating the Race Guard was never going to be easy. It had served Crud well for 11 years, and was still the market leader. Basic market research showed that the update had to include a fast-fitting, simple fixing system. It took about 2 weeks to come up with the one-bolt solution. After 3 months of tweaking and prototyping Crud were ready to start the tooling. Last time Crud shaped a prototype, they cut up a surfboard blank, and got the basic shape of the mudguard with the help of a local boardshaper. Technology has moved on. This time, we prototyped about 25 models at every stage of development, with a Stereo lithographic RP Machine. More fun, super-accurate, and vastly more expensive. But Crud couldn’t have designed the ‘09 range without it.
All of our bikes are sent on a next day service. When your order ships, you will be sent a tracking link by email.
Every bike we sell is fully assembled and tested for safety by our trained mechanics. We then partly disassemble the bike and carefully re-pack to prepare for shipping.
Depending on the model, upon receipt, you may be required to straighten and tighten the handlebars, re-attach front wheel and attach the pedals. Please ensure that the pedals are greased and fitted correctly - the pedals will be marked L and R and have to be fitted to the left and right cranks respectively. Not every bike comes with pedals, please check when you are placing your order.
There is a guide in the box telling you which tools you will need and the steps to follow. This will require some degree of mechanical skill to put together and can need some minor adjustments. The less confident you are in this field the more we'd recommend having it checked over by a professional mechanic.
Please note: Manufacturers can sometimes change the specification of the products from time to time.
