Clydesdales/Athenas (200+ lb / 91+ kg) - Fenders for an older 27" wheeled road bike?
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.
Just curious as to suggestions for some decent fenders for an older 1987 Schwinn Traveler, with 27" wheels. I live in the Pacific Northwest, so I'll have lots of days that I'll be riding in the rain, and just wanting to know what fenders work with 27" bikes? I see plenty of ads for fenders that will fit 26" and 700c tires, and I imagine that some of the more adjustable ones are fine for 27" tires.
Just wanting some suggestions and recommendations.

I have 45mm SKS commuter fenders on my World Tourist.
Just about anything that will work with 700c (ISO 622) will work with 27" (ISO 630) as there is only 4mm difference in radius.

I'm running Planet Bike Cascadia fenders on my 73 Schwinn
