Hello! I am completely new to posting here on Bike Forums, but have read many threads over the years to obtain some wonderful information. I'm not entirely certain if this is the best place to get an answer to my question, but I'm in the process of obtaining a Rivendell Sam Hillborne frame. My husband and I will be building the bicycle together (which I'm pretty excited about!), and while I anxiously wait for the frame to arrive, we've been purchasing various components and parts for the bicycle. I'm wondering if anyone out there knows what the maximum size is for fenders on this particular model? I'd hate to purchase something and then have them not fit.
Additionally, if anyone knows what the minimum difference in size for tires and fenders is, this would be very helpful as well. For example, could one have a 40mm tire and a 41mm fender, or is there more clearance needed?
Thanks in advance for assistance with this.
