I called Thule about the Thule Insta-Gater Pro Truck Bed Bike Rack, # TH93VR, being used with cruiser bikes with front fenders. They said if there is room between the fender and the tire which will allow the wheel hook to be installed underneath the fender, then you would be fine. They do not recommend attaching the wheel hook over the fenders, because when it is tightened down it could damage the fenders.

Also, if you have a hitch on your truck you can go to a hitch bike rack, which comes in either a hanging bike rack or a platform bike rack.
