I’ve made fenders for the rear suspension bearings and bushings on many different bikes in the last 20 years, including Specialized, Ibis, Santa Cruz, and Yeti. It’s one of the first things I do when setting up a new bike. It seems to prolong the life of any such pivot points that are right in the line of fire off the rear wheel and it makes cleaning tight spaces around suspension parts easier because they don’t get as dirty. I’m not sure why the MTB engineers and designers have not incoporated small plastic fenders as part of the design, as moto design teams have been doing for decades. Amazing that we are just now seeing this on bikes.
