Front mudguard for Cannondale Hooligan 8

I'm looking for a front mudguard for my Hooligan 8. It has 20" wheels and I have found the following Mighty Mudguards on Amazon.http://www.amazon.com/Mighty-Mudguar...2792316&sr=1-7
Does anyone know if it will fit a 20' tire...it doesn't clearly state it in the product description. Otherwise, any other mudguard recommendations? thanx Frank

Look for a place that deals in folding bikes or recumbents. I've gotten fenders for 20" wheeled bikes from Bike Friday, http://store.bikefriday.com/index.ph...79f85&cPath=21 and The Hostel Shoppe, http://www.hostelshoppe.com/cgi-bin/...ategory=204000 . Another place with 20" fenders is ThorUSA, http://www.thorusa.com/dahon/accessories/racks.htm. I haven't gotten any there, but they have real good service, as do the others.

I've never seen a hooligan 8, but I owned a hooligan 3 and loved it. I used an SKS shock board fender on that bike.

The front fork on a hooligan is not a typical 20" fork. A full fender for a 20" wheel would be optimal, but any of those small wheel full fenders will not fit the profile of the fork. Conversely, a 26" mtb fender would fit the profile of the fork, but not the wheel, and it could be quite close to your feet.
