    Fender modification to fix full fender to MTB with suspension

    Hi,
    I am trying to fix a SKS P65 chromoplastic fender to my Trek 4500 D. The front part is tricky with suspension not having eyelets for attaching the stay.

    I took one of the v stays and bent the upper rod in center so that it curves upward and I can angle the v stay so that it attaches on suspension fork above the disk brake.

    I plan to put inner rubber tube patch on suspension tube and run a cable tie through the safety release of the stay and attach it to the suspension .

    Is this a good idea or could there be any problems with it ?

    A lot of work for what shouldbe an easy fix . SKS makes a fender mount for suspension forks, the mount goes into the bottom of the fork with a bracket ,the bracket attaches to the fender. It has a quick release so you can install and remove in seconds.

    Suspension precludes the use of a full fender. Period. You have to use a fender made to be used on a suspension fork.

    It was enough work for me to mod a full fender for use on my road bike with disc brakes.
