Ideal fender size for 28c tires?
I just bought a Specialized Sirrus Sport to use as a commuter bicycle. Since I live in the Pacific Northwest I needed a bike that could fit full fenders because of our rainy weather.
The bike has 28c tires and the attachments readily available on the bike to mount the fenders, but what fenders should I get? Planet Bike has fenders that fit UP TO 28c tires, but am I pushing it by getting too narrow of fenders and risking getting wet while riding? But at the same time I don't want my bike to look goofy with over sized fenders that might not fit with the bike's brakes.
