Fenders for trike?

What kind/brand of fenders would some of you recommend for my Terra Trike Cruiser? I've been commuting on a DF with studded tires in Norther New Jersey. Just bought the Terra and love it! How about mirrors/ fairing, headlights? Anyone use studs on a trike.

I know some of these issues have already been addressed to a certain degree. Just thought some of the more recent forum members may have some new suggestions.

Thanks,

Woo

Here are a couple of web sites to check out for your Trike. I have SUN Tadpole that I ride daily and I have fenders on it. Mirrors are definitely a HUGE plus. I use only one on the left side so I can have a view of oncoming traffic. I don't have a fairing. I have found that studded tires on a bike are a bit overkill not to mention expensive. Unless you make your own. I run with 20" Mountain Bike tires on mine and that seems to be enough for the snow and ice. And I live in Lincoln, Nebraska. Here are those web sites.

www.hostelshoppe.com

www.theusedbikeshop.com

The last link is where I go here and I happen to know that he has a set of fenders that were taken off of a trike as the guy didn't like them. He went with a different style of fenders. So they are just sitting around. Might be able to get them relatively cheap. And they won't fit on mine. dang it....

You can email me directly at....... hbrogan57@NOSPAM.yahoo.com just remove the NOSPAM.
