Cyclocross - Fenders for CX Bike Recommendation Needed
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
For those who have fenders on your CX bike, which ones do you use?
I am thinking primarily for those times I take the CX on road rides in the rain.
I have the Crud Road Racers on my road bike which works great but it looks like Crud doesn't have much to offer for CX bikes with more coverage.

does your ride have eyelets?

I use some full-coverage fenders by SKS - good German quality. Lack of mounting points can always be overcome when the clearance is there.
Planet Bike makes fenders that mount to bikes without eyelets called the Speedez Hybrid (http://ecom1.planetbike.com/7015.html). They look wide enough (45mm) for cyclocross tires.
My cyclocross frame has eyelets for fenders, but I use disc brakes. I have been looking at the Planet Bike Cascadia 29er (http://ecom1.planetbike.com/7029.html) fenders. I read the directions on-line and it looks like they have mounts to go around disc brakes. It does not look like I have enough clearance for fenders that wide (65mm).
Has anyone had success with fenders and disc brakes (on a cross bike) that would post a picture?
I use the Planet Bike touring fenders. 42 mm clearance and mount just fine. I have eyelets tho
