Yea....I don't think they would work very well with a fork brace....but I could be wrong.

That's good to know. Do you have the guards fastened to the forks....as in zip tied or something to keep them in place? I see they fasten to themselves, but wonder if they slide up?

guards come with zip ties. but i dont use them. guards dont ride up fork tube due to loose fit.
