Fenders for a Gary Fisher?

Anyone have a set of fenders they know fits properly on a Gary Fisher Fast City bike? http://fisherbikes.com/bike/series/fastcity. I know what doesn't fit, (the support posts are too long by about an inch and a 1/2) http://www.bontrager.com/model/04684. I'd really appreciate it, cause option two is a lot of trial and error cutting down the supports on the ones I have.

Thanks in advance

On these: http://www.sks-germany.com/sks.php?l...t&i=6409800121, the fender struts are adjustable. You don't cut them, until you have the fender positioned the way you want it,.

I just traded those fenders in at REI for some of the SKS fenders, I didn't like the PB's lack of break-away front stay.

I just bought these yesterday for my GF Monona and will hopefully have them installed later today.
