I have a 2 part solution for it on my brevet bike; a Surly Cross-Check.
1) Wide Profile Cantis. You need a big-ass straddle wire with brakes like the CR720, so the hanger is well above the intersection of my fender.
2) Mount Extender. There's clearance for 45mm tires in that fork of mine, and I'm only running 32's. That's a lot of gap to cover with a stock mount. My SKS P-45 fenders came up short by almost 2cm. The eyelet hanger bolt included with my VO Stainless fenders was even worse, increasing the gap to nearly 3.25cm. I drilled out the rivets on my SKS fender mount, riveted the mount onto the VO Stainless fenders, and affixed a strip-steel extender to bring the fender line close to the tire.
