2006 Redline Conquest Pro: Fenders & Disk Brakes?

I have this bike which has disk brake mounts and fender mounts. I just mounted full Planet Bike's Freddy Hardcore fenders and realized that the fender braces slightly seem to interfere with where the disk brakes would mount. Anyone have any insight? Can you do both, or is it one or the other? Maybe I will post pics...

There are a few guys with mudguards and disc brakes. I think they've all either bent the mudguard mounts slightly to fit around the disc brake or used a piece of tubing and a longer screw (kind of a super sized washer to push the stays out slightly) as a stand-off when mounting the mudgaurds.

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

No problem - I'm just plagiarising someone else's idea from these forums.
