When it gets really, really muddy, and I mean REALLY muddy, but you still gotta ride, then it’s time to break out the Moto-Foam.
This is a pretty obscure product in the mountain bike world. Designed for MotoX motorbike racers, it’s a lightweight foam that can be cut to size and popped in parts of the bike likely to get clagged up with gritty mud. This stops the mud gumming up the works, and also keeps the weight down as a very muddy bike weighs an absolute ton!
