They don't work very well with a fork brace.

Why would you say that about Heavy? It's pretty rude.

Do the fork guards work with a fork brace?

Thanks Tom. I was kind of curious as to what inspired the comment.

I haven't found a way to use the boots with my brace. I put a set of the same boots on my bike shortly after I got it. They mount on the top of the fork slider and, once I got a couple of zip ties to hold them in place, they worked really well. Two years ago I put on a fork brace and couldn't find a good way to mount the boots. Both items attach to the top of the fork sliders and don't seem to be compatible. Maybe I am a moron because I haven't figured out how to mount both?
