    Best fenders for a Kilo WT

    I want to get some full length fenders for my Kilo WT. I'm not interested in down tube or seatpost mounted "blades", I want real fenders. I'm using the stock 32MM tires. Which fenders have people had luck with? I know toe overlap is going to be an issue and would prefer to use as narrow a front fender as possible while maintaining coverage.

    I use these >>> http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...82&category=78

    There is minimal toe overlap with a 32mm tire in the front and I have a 35mm tire in the rear.

    I really like Planet Bike's Cascadia fenders. I use them with 27 x 1-1/4" and 700c x 32 mm tires on vintage bicycles, both sets that I picked up locally a long time ago.

    Mounted the SKS Chromo Plastic fenders. Three are really solid, nicely made and work well. I left the rear stays a little long to leave a gap and allow me to get the wheel out without fussing around. Aesthetics of the uneven gap around the rear wheel bother me, though. Is there a better solution?
