    Issue mounting Planet Bike Hybrid fenders on 7.3FX

    Hey guys.
    I was recommended to buy these Fenders, so I got them in the mail today. The front mounted fine, but I'm having an issue with the rear. The Clip thing on the front end of the fender, that is supposed to fit into the chainstay bridge is too wide. The slot for it s there, but it doesn't fit down into it.

    What should my next course of action be? File it down, somehow take it off, or another option? Thanks guys, figured I'd ask before modifying...

    A poor picture:

    Grind that tab down to size, and make SURE you smooth out the edges before scratching the heck out of your paint. I think for my sirrus I actually bent it a bit so it wouldnt hardly touch the tube, and just used the bolt that my bike had there to secure the fender.

    Yep, file or grind to fit. The tab, that is.....
