Carrying a carbon bike with mudguards on the roof

I can't seem to find a solution to my particular bike carrying problem.

I want a way to carry a bike that has a carbon downtube but also has mudguards.
I don't want to clamp to the downtube, so the Thule 591 is out, and the Thule 561 doesn't work as the front 'guard hits the carrier before the front fork can be clamped in.

I am sure that I have seen a system like the 561 where there is no aluminium carrier between the front and rear bar, but I can't seem to find it at the moment.

Anyone have any ideas to a solution?
