Mud guards for Moscow Plus

Hi,
I attached the light and rack kit to my Moscow Plus 29. I notice that the rack leaves very little space between the tire and the bottom of the rack. Has anyone figured out how to install a mud guard over that rear wheel? Or perhaps the only solution is to install a partial mud guard? There is absolutely not enough space between the rack and the tire. If only the rack were designed to leave about one half inch more clearance.
Thanks!

Hi,
What am I talking about? As I stated in my email, the rear carrier/rack kit I purchased from Leon’s Cycle, designed for the Moscow bikes does NOT allow sufficient clearance above the rear wheel to allow for the installation of a mud guard.
Your set up looks very good.
But, the picture you show is clearly a different rear carrier/rack, NOT the one sold by Leon’s Cycle (simply check their web sit to confirm).
It does not make sense that I would need to replace by bike rear carrier. I will continue to find a logical solution.
Thanks.

Okay I didn't know that you purchased it from Leon Cycle.
And the bike above isn't mine.
Is this what you purchased?

I was hoping it to be height adjustable, but looks like it's not :(

Hi,
Thank you...really appreciate your trying to help.
Yes, I purchased that kit you displayed. Unfortunately, the manufacturer made a huge error in not allowing sufficient clearance between the tire and the bottom of that carrier. It would simply have been a matter of using more caution to allow another inch or two clearance. Just an extra inch or two on the ‘arms‘ of that carrier...a very, very simple design adjustment.
Similarly, the placement of the water bottle cage screws was absolutely terrible...should have been much closer to the stem.
Oh well, at least the bike rides very well!! And, I have far more pressing health issues to deal with.

BTW, that pictured bike is exactly what I have.
Thanks again and safe riding!
