    High fender question..,

    I have a cycleracks front rack. Does anyone know if the high fender modification works without bumping into the front rack? I'm sure I could modify things to make it work, but just curious...

    the fender doesn't move with the wheel when it is mounted high, so if it fits under the rack, your good32.jpg

    Thanks grewen! My concern was if the rack would impead mounting of the fender, e.g.: can the fender be positioned under the rack or will bracket position cause fender to hit rack and not be able to be installed. I guess I will just order a kit and modify if necessary!

    This has come up before, in which case a heat gun was recommended if there was interference. Never seen one mounted up though. I'm interested in trying it myself but haven't got the front rack yet.

    I got mine to work with a cycleracks front rack, had to shim the bottom rack mounts with about 1/2 inch worth of washers and used a longer bolt. I then mounted a full size poly sport UFX fender. It turned out great. Fender barely touches the rack.

    Mounted my high mount front fender from procycle this evening. I had to shim a smidge, the front which lowered the fender enough to clear the cycle racks front rack. I cut some gas line to create a shim. I think it worked out nicely!
