I just got fenders, Planet Bike Cascadia 45mm, for my new Mercier Kilo WT bike. I've installed fenders before but on a much older bike with some key differences in hardware related to their installation.
The instructions included with the fenders are more or less useless because they don't factor in brakes - I suppose they do this to avoid addressing the variety of brakes that exist.
So my question is, is it possible/am I supposed to install the fender to the rear side of the fork? Or do I need to remove the brakes and sandwich the hardware between the brakes and the fork? If the latter, what kind of tool(s) do I need to remove the brake?
