Rear Rack Clearing Fenders on a Hybrid bike
I am looking for a rear rack that will fit on my Kona Dew (2012) on top of my Planet Bike Cascadia II Hybrid Fenders.
I visited my closest nearby MEC around a month ago and checked out this following rack http://www.mec.ca/product/1805-118/m...10+50002+50159
I wasn't able to get the rack to clear the fenders as it was too short. I returned the rack to the MEC and asked one of the workers there if there was a rack available that would be able to clear the fenders. They told me the rack I had already purchased was already my best bet, and told me usually fenders and rear racks are not found on the same bike and it's one or the other. They told me about the option of just keeping the front fender and removing the back fender in order to fit the rear rack.
I personally really would like the keep both fenders attached to the bike. Are there any rear racks at a reasonable price ~$30 (the bike is just be used for the casual ~30min commute to school to hold books, school supplies, food that my backpack can't hold) that would be able to clear these fenders? Or are there any adjustments I can make to the MEC bike to get the rear rack to clear the fenders? Please note I live in Canada, our selection of products are usually limited compared to you lucky Americans :p
