USING A STIRRUP BAR VERSUS A FENDER ATTACHED TO THE TREE
For the majority of riders this comes down to personal preference, however there are some differences. The main difference is that a Fender mounted on a Stirrup Bar allows the rider to swing the Fender further forward.
Another point of difference is that children or novice riders will feel safer with a Fender mounted on Stirrup Bars due to the way the Fender will slide off the Stirrup Bar if the rider becomes hung in the stirrups.
