Mounting fenders on Klein mtb

    I've got an old Klein Pinnacle that I use as a utility bike and I want to
    get some full fenders (Planet Bike's Freddy Fenders) for it. I looked at
    the online mounting instructions for the rear fender and I anticipate that
    the Klein "chainstay bridge" and the resulting route of the front
    derailleur cable might make mounting a fender impossible: (1) The Klein
    "bridge" is actually a solid piece of aluminum running from the usual
    bridge position forward to the seat stay. (2) The derailleur cable comes up
    thru the "bridge" on the left side and then angles rightward to the
    derailleur. It seems to me that I won't be able to clip the fender to the
    seat stay without interfering with the cable. Has anyone tried mounting
    full fenders on an old Klein?
