CMG PRO FENDER INTRO:

We have just become the Australian distributor for CMG Mountain Bike products.

CMG stands for "Customudguard" an Indonesian mountain bike components company specialising in MTB fenders along with a bunch of other products that we will be stocking soon.

We followed CMG's ProFender development over the past few years, and now they are available to the market we will be stocking in Australia.

The fender comes in two styles: the PRO FENDER Bolt-On model has an adaption for Fox, Marzocchi, RS Zeb & Ohlins forks, and screws to the backside of the fork lowers.

The idea is a universal kit to cover all frame models and sizes in the high impact/areas. The frame protection kits are easy to install and also easy to modify if your frame has some unusual curves.

Jonno, Congratulations on the launch of the HTF Components brand! We've been riding on the ODIN flat pedals for a little while now and so far very impressed with the quality and feel. Having the option to tune the pedals with different pin lengths is a game changer - they are the most grippy flats we have ever used.

WTR: Starting a components company seems like a tall order for most, What is your background and what inspired the HTF brand?

HTF: Like most guys obsessed with mountain biking, I have been riding bikes since...
