- As supplied to the Westminster and City of London Police forces for use on their Cycle Patrol Team bikes
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.
