      After some help, I need a front mud guard, but to use the #usual# type, ie the type that goes under the bracket between the forks doesn’t work, as there isn’t enough of a gap to install the guard.

      Ive seen some that attach from behind the bracket, but don’t know the name.

      Thanks for any help.

      Which one did you try that doesn’t fit?

      There generally isn’t a lot of clearance in this area, so it’s important to get the guard tight up against the fork brace. A friend made a custom one for me out of a piece of plastic and it fits and works great, but the key was to use a bunch of zip ties to keep everything nice and tight, and formed to the shape of the fork.

      Still, some forks are weird so you might have better luck with a guard that goes on the bottom of your downtube. Something like this (just grabbed this photo from Amazon; not sure if this one is any good):
