Large Fenders

Looking for large fenders to put on my Karate Monkey. I will be running 29er 2.1 tires. Other choices besides planet bike? Recommendations please.

Maybe SKS .. or get some aluminum, sheet stock in a flat strip and make your own.

Fat bike fenders, but may be too wide for your purposes. PB 29er fenders are 65mm and should be sufficient. Saw a set at REI a few months ago, and they are beefy.

SKS makes a nice 29er fender. I put 55mm on my Hunqapillar, they have optional QR fenderstays and slide on or off in a jiffy. They're made in 4 sizes. I think the largest is 65mm.

I have the Planet Bike Cascadia fenders on my wife's commuter 29-er, and really like them. The best fenders I've ever seen.
