So I picked up a set of these off of chainlove a couple of weeks ago, not really for commuting but for wet pavement rides, moderate mud days, and to keep gravel from getting kicked up into my face on mixed surface type rides. Unfortunately the front mounting system doesn't appear to work w/ the fork on either of my MTBs - the "plug" seems like it's probably an 1/8" too big and the rear portion of the fender doesn't look like it would clear the down tube/cable housings if it would fit flush.
Anyone else run into this issue? If so what creative solutions did you come up with?
My current idea is to try to find some type of rubber stopper the will fit securely in the steerer tube, stack that up w/ some washers to provide some more clearance, and run an appropriately sized stainless bolt through the middle to attach the fender.
