Cannot mesh mountain bike frame front triangle

First post here. I'm designing a trail bike for my research project at Swansea Uni and have spent weeks trying to get the front triangle to mesh in simulation so I can analyse it. I can't find any errors in the geometry, but the 'mesh faliure diagnostics' says every feature is unable to mesh. I have been to specific solidworks help classes at uni and the helpers don't know what to do.


I extruded 'up to next' to get the tubes to join and lofted as a thin feature to get the curves.


Any help appreciated! I've been tearing my hair out for days over this.


EDIT: I have attached the model now.
