Editor's Notes

February 18, 2019:

Noted that the width of the Portland Design Mud Shovel makes it suitable for use with fat tire bikes, which is good information to have given the rise in popularity of that style of biking. The Planet Bike Cascadia is one of the only models I discovered to be offered in a wide variety of sizes, which is one reason for its high ranking. Researched the BlueSunshine Road, but quickly learned through numerous reports that shoddy craftsmanship made it unacceptable for this list.
