Quickguard Quick Release Bicycle Fender

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2017-10-24

Stay dry and comfortable while riding your bicycle with the Quickguard Quick Release Bicycle Fender. This full length and fully adjustable mudguard mounts on just one side of your bicycle. It is easy to install and doesn’t require any tools to attach or remove it. In fact, installation only takes thirty seconds. To install Quickguard, simply thread the nut off the end of your skewer that goes to the axil. Then place the nut end of the skewer with the fender and close down the quick release. You don’t even need to buy a front and rear mudguard since Quickguard fits both wheels. In addition, Quickguard attaches to the wheels instead of the frame so it won’t scratch or rub the paintwork. Likewise, it uses study yet lightweight aluminum to stay in place. With its simple and minimalist design, you can easily mount or dismount it as needed.

Thanks Chris....hoping the sample is right. It's a slow process to make sure it all goes right.

Review from Kickstarter
I am aiming to ship in August. The production sample will be complete mid June and I hope to receive the sample shortly after that to post some photos here. Sorry for the delay, I know the process is frustrating but unfortunately I am not manufacturing them myself and am at the mercy of a global bicycle parts manufacturer.

Chris, on feb 26 u said ship “well before August. On March 7 , shipping date early July . So really what is the real time ? I don’t care about tooling phase and all that stuff ? Just want the product like everyone else ? No bs, bs bs !

Hi John
currently the Quickguard is in the tooling phase. A production sample will be ready soon for testing and final tweaking before pressing the button on the production run. I'll post photos here of the sample when I get it
Thanks

Is there anyone giving any updates on this project?

Hi
Sorry, I’ve lost faith.
Been following this project for a long long time.
Good money paid & still no sign of any product.
Such a shame.
Time for a refund I reckon!

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, in a recent update you said shipping would be delayed until August - is that still the plan? What order will they be sent out in - first in first out? Reason I ask is that I will be overseas (from AU) for some riding from about 20th Aug and it would be really good to have the guards before I go. Thanks, Steve

Hi Dirk
that might work but the QG nut would need to be tight.
Another option would be to tap a thread into the thru axle end and use a bolt to secure the QG nut.
Dirk Bergstrom
Review from Kickstarter
Related question: How long does the Quickguard nut need to be? Can I saw it off to make room for a lock nut? Can I get an extra QG nut for each of my fenders so I can experiment? I promise I'll send you pictures and feedback.
Dirk Bergstrom
Review from Kickstarter
Here's a possible solution, do you think this could be made to work? Take a standard QR skewer, saw off the handle end.
Epoxy the threaded end of the QR skewer into the end of a thru axle.
Install the frankensteined axle+skewer into your bike.
Thread the Quickguard nut onto the QR stub, leaving some thread sticking out the outboard end.
Thread a smallish nut onto the remaining QR thread and tighten it down as a lock-nut.
Mount the QG fender normally. This permanently modifies the through axles, but that's a smallish price to pay. It means that you'd be putting a fair amount of stress on the QR skewer stub, since the QG nut (probably) wouldn't be hard against the frame. You'd want to use a steel skewer, and maybe add a hard rubber or soft-ish plastic washer between the QG nut and the frame for support. I really want to make these things work on my bike...

Hi Dirk
Its impossible for me to know what adapter you may need for your thru axle bike without seeing your bike. Its possible a simple adapter kit like this one eBay may work with your bike and allow Quickguard to attach https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Bicycle-QR-15mm-to-9mm-Thru-Axle-Hub-Conversion-Adapter-Front-Rear-Skewers/401482329643… As I mentioned before there are currently 28 and counting different thru axles options in the market and to make a one-size-fits-all adapter is impossible and is a sure bet will disappoint people with usual thru axle frame designs.
Dirk Bergstrom
Review from Kickstarter
Chris, your answers to the thru axle questions are confusing and contradictory. Please spell out clearly what the options are for people with thru axles. If there is a specific adapter that will work, provide a link to it. If a part needs to be fabricated, describe it, or better yet provide a drawing or a CAD render. I need to understand if there's any practical way to attach your fenders to my bike.

Hi Matthias
The Robert Axle project doesn't have an axle ready to go to suit the Quickguard. It would have to be developed. Currently you can buy a thru axle to QR axle on eBay for about $15.
Matthias Wagner
Review from Kickstarter
Hello Chris, due to being forced to get a thru-axle solution from robertaxleproject, can't you contact him to negotiate for a discount for us backers (or Quickguard customers at all)? If Quickguard customers have to ask for a suitable thru axle anyway there would be the option for an individual coupon code. This would mean more sales for robertaxleproject and Quickguard together. It's quite expensive for me to equip my bike's front and rear Quickguard with suitable thru axles for appr. 100$... Thank you for your effort!

Hi Jaques
pursuing the thru axle option did waste quick a bit of time and has still set the whole project back, I'm anticipating a shipping date in early July
Jaques Connard
Review from Kickstarter
Chris... please provide an updated delivery date now that the thru-axle option is no longer an option.
David Wilson

Review from Kickstarter
Hi David
Yes, the Quickguard should be shipped well before August now. Finding a Thru Axle solution did waste a lot of time and in a few weeks I should have firm shipping date.
David Wilson
Review from Kickstarter
Given that the Thru-Axle option is no longer being considered does this mean that the timescale for production of the QR version will come in from the previously announced 6 month extension? regards

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Brigitte
The Robert Axle Project have a custom axle, its not on their site, you would need to ask for it.
I know the axles are expensive hence the reason why I cannot include it in the price of the Quickguard. If all Thru Axle bikes used the same universal system I could offer a cost effective solution - but that isn't the case. There are just too many variables in Thru Axles to it affordable. I'm sorry for not being able to offer a solution and will refund you your pledge. Chris
Brigitte Nill
Review from Kickstarter
Dear Chris, I don't understand how Robert Axle Project could help - as far as I see it replaces a 12mm standard thru-axle with a nother one that is designed for a certain purpose. There is no solution offered for your Quickguard. And serious, 58 USD for one lightweight thru-axle replacement?? Sorry, no way. I backed your project because you promised that there is a thru-axle adapter. Now I have to request a refund which is not my preferred solution.
Chris Howard
Review from Kickstarter
Thanks Jaques. To see a solution for a Thru Axle that already exists and will work with the Quickguard inquire here

No worries about the thru-axle issue. These are still the best option available!

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Eric
The plan was to offer a solution for Thru Axles, but there are 28 and counting different Thru Axle options in the market and I realise now its impossible to satisfy everyone. The last thing I want to do is send out Thru Axle adapters that don't fit. I'm happy to refund you if the Quickguard is no longer suitable for you. Just contact me directly via the Quickguard website Sorry for the inconvenience

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Chris, I just received update email #23 where you say: "The Quickguard will proceed as originally pitched in the Kickstarter campaign, fitting ONLY standard QR axles. In the future there will be an option for Thru Axles but in the meantime a solution can be PURCHASED via the Robert Axle Project." I find this deeply troubling as the original campaign (and still listed on the campaign page) states: "We are designing a special Quickguard adapter to fit all Thru Axles to be compatible Cross, Road and MTB bikes" Furthermore the Campaign states, "All backers requiring the Quickguard to fit a Thru Axle will be contacted during fulfillment AND RECEIVE the correct adapter to work with your bike or bikes." Nowhere does it state in the Campaign that anything additional will need to be PURCHASED in order to use the Quickguards with thru axles. In fact it says "YOU WILL RECEIVE the correct adapter to work with your bike." I backed this project for two Quickguards knowing I will need both to be thru axel. I'm still very excited about this product for my bikes but feel like the details have changed requiring me to buy something else in order to use it. As a backer I'd like your response to this because I'm likely not alone. Thanks-
Bastian

Hey Chris, what about the survey? Even you didn't really know what systems and what quantity the backers need you tell about a really long delay. Could you post some more information about current status and how your developing his moving on? Thanks

Review from Kickstarter
This is total bull. If the QR stuff is ready you should send it now or refund backers who didn't care about any of the non-QR stuff.

I backed this project for April 2018 delivery date. I just want the quick release as described in the project. Plus, previous update #21, back kit never came out ! Very disappointed with this project !

Hi Eric
There will be available Quickguard Thru Axle nuts in various sizes you can purchase later for $5 each that will work with the Quickguard. The option will be available during the survey period. Thanks

Review from Kickstarter
My current road bike has two quick-release wheels. However, I've been in the market for a new bike which will either have 2 through axels or one through axel wheel (rear) and one quick-release (front). Will i need to decide when they survey comes out, which set up I want? Or will i be able to modify it later? E.g. If I buy one that is quick release now can I convert it to through axel - and will there be a cost to do so? Thanks!
Chris Howard
Review from Kickstarter
Soon a survey will go out via BackerKit to all backers asking to choose their axle nut diameter and thread pitch so you'll be able to choose then. Thanks

Hi Mark
Thanks for your support. I do have plans for other guards to suit other bikes and will most likely use Kickstarter for those so stay tuned

Review from Kickstarter
Congratulations. I have multiple mudguards for my road bike, non of which are very user friendly and or have broken. Yours is a great concept, I'm looking forward to getting my pair! Do you have a plan in the wings for a similar, wider/ heavier concept for my dual suspension 29er? All the best and I hope things go well!

Hi Allan
The Quickguard will have the option to have a special 12mm thru axle nut that the Quickguard can mount onto. For the front forks the nut in elongated so the Quickguard stays clear the forks.
Allan Burns
Review from Kickstarter
with thru axels the back one is usually longer than the front one, my back one is 142x12mm and the front one is 100x12mm and with some mountain bikes the front QL is at the front of the fork so you wouldn't be able to have it at the back of the front wheel

Hi Bruce
the best way is to cancel your pledge and start again, this time pledge BUY TWO for $69.
That will buy you two Quickguards.
Bruce Carlson
Review from Kickstarter
I just doubled my pledge. My intention is to get 2 fenders instead of the original pledge for one. Is that how it’s done?

Hi Jason
Yes the one Quickguard will fit both QR and thru axles by using the axle nut adapter Thanks
