Fenders for 24" wheels?

Does anyone know where I can score a set of fenders (the full style, not MTB type) for 24" wheel/tire combo?

I can find a lot for 26" ers and 20" ers for recumbents, but having a hard time with the elusive 24" size...

Thanks in advance!

Either stretch 20 inchers a bit or pull in the 26ers via your bracket or mounting system. There is more than one trike company that does this to fit certain wheel sizes. The polycarbonate fenders have more than enough flexibility to accomplish your goal. (Pulling in the 26s will probably be the easiest.)

FYI I just did this. These are SKS P55 fenders. There is a slight bulge between the stays because I had to bend them a little bit. They'll fit, but you sorta have to tension them around the wheel. Yep seven years later I post a reply.
