    Front mud/splash guard

    Thinking about getting one of these from PB, the kind that just attach to the down tube. Was wondering how bad they get in the way of pedaling, especially if you already have a decent amount of pedal strike. Thanks.

    I would assume you would be fine.

    It is fixed to the downtube, as long as you have enough room between that and your wheel, you will be ok.

    Might not work with clearance like this tho:

    measure the length between the insides of the crank arm, there's actually lots of room there.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
