I use the Soma Euro Trip http://www.somafab.com/eurotripfenders.html

SKS are good too.

(my LHT is 26" wheel model)

I love my PB Cascadias. 26" or 700c. Or 29er for that matter since the LHT can take pretty chunky 700s. Fantastic mudflap. I am rolling 26" x 2.0s.

If my LHT ever arrives I think bolting on anything less than wood fenders would be an insult.

Another nod for wood. I'm installing a set of Fast Boy Fenders on my LHT tonight!! Ezra is an excellent guy to do business with. http://www.fastboyfenders.com/

Hi,
How much this fenders cost?
They are sure beautiful, but are they practical for touring?

I did SKS. Wood looks cool, but will it take a beating? The SKS's are nice and flexible.

I think I paid $185 for mine.

Not sure about praticallity at this point. They aren't as fragile as I'd expected them to be just from looking at them and handling them. They have an oil finish which will need to be reapplied periodically. I wound up working late last night and didn't install them. I'll post some pics when I finish them tonight.
