Blooming front mudguard is fouling the gear cable i think...

It is a crud catcher and uses the rubber bands to secure to the frame...
i've made sure the bands go under the cables (routed on the downtube) but i think its the guard which is catching the cables :(

Any suggestions for fixing or is it a case of tough titty and just deal with it.

    what problem is it causing?

    could you maybe make some spacer's from foam or rubber to lift the guard away from the frame slightly?

    just an idea don't know if this would work :?

    Good shout andy46 - i'll maybe give that a go,

    nicklouse just when shifting down the cable catches and doesn't provide a slick change in gear. mildly annoying but if worst comes to worst, its a small price to pay to stop me getting a wet face in all this snow and slush! lol

    Try sliding the mudguard inbetween the cables and the frame so that the cables them run under the mudguard. Worked on my old one.
