My fenders just arrived and there is a dent in the front fender. It sits about halfway up the fender, in front of the pre-drilled hole where the fender connects to the fork crown. I think the dent is there for mounting reasons. I believe there are two ways to mount the fender, by using an L-bracket or by using a fork crown daruma that is provided with the fenders. When I mount the fender using the fork crown daruma, the dent sits directly in front of the fork crown, starring at me. If my bike had centerpull brakes the dent would be hidden but it has wide profile cantilevers, it is very exposed. If I mount using an L-bracket, the dent is hidden under the fork crown. Has anyone else had this problem?

I don't see a problem unless you can't use the L bracket to mount it.

I too use aluminum fenders (velo-orange). Are you sure this dent is not a dimple or a punch mark where you would drill another hole for the L-Bracket.
Do you have them on backwards?
