Bontrager Approved Fender/Rack fit Trek 7.3FX?

Hi. Can someone kindly tell me if "Bontrager Approved Fender for up to 700X 35 tire" fit my 2008
Trek 7.3 FX, frame 15", tire 700C x 32?

I tried but I think I either need to cut the length of the stay or bend it? Or does this fender now go with my bike?

Another question. I bought a Bontrager Back Rack 1. Does this fit my bike as well?
The longest stay even seems too short? Can anyone tell me if it goes with my bike or not?
If yes, how am I supposed to bend the stay if that's the case?

oh, and does this rack and the fender be put on the bike simultaneously?

Thanks.

Both should go with your bike fine at the same time. If the longest rack stays are too short, you can get longer ones or be creative.

Can't help you with the fender, but I use a Delta Universal Megarack on my Trek 7.5fx.
It was only about $15.00 on sale and has proved very reliable.
