Fenders on a trek soho

Hey guys and gals, I recently placed some fenders on my trek soho and had trouble with my feet get stuck in the mud flap on the bottom of the front fender when turning and trying to pedal. What a mess. Anyone else have this problem. Didn't want to buy a bike to fit the fenders. LOL

I have a similar problem on my Surly LHT. I have SKS fenders mounted and they have these stupid support beam prongs sticking out the end of them by my feet. On tight turns if I pedal, I get stuck in them. The solution: don't pedal on turns. Seriously. Seems like a pretty common problem.

You can cut them off.
