Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Fenders for CX Bike Recommendation Needed

For those who have fenders on your CX bike, which ones do you use?
I am thinking primarily for those times I take the CX on road rides in the rain.

I have the Crud Road Racers on my road bike which works great but it looks like Crud doesn't have much to offer for CX bikes with more coverage.

I use some full-coverage fenders by SKS - good German quality. Lack of mounting points can always be overcome when the clearance is there.

Planet Bike Cascadia 29er

Planet Bike makes fenders that mount to bikes without eyelets called the Speedez Hybrid. They look wide enough (45mm) for cyclocross tires.

My cyclocross frame has eyelets for fenders, but I use disc brakes. I have been looking at the Planet Bike Cascadia 29er fenders. I read the directions on-line and it looks like they have mounts to go around disc brakes. It does not look like I have enough clearance for fenders that wide (65mm).

Has anyone had success with fenders and disc brakes (on a cross bike) that would post a picture?
