i have a motobecane fantom cross uno that i just put 700x38c tires on and could fit fenders too. the kilo tt is sold by the same people who sell the motobecane. one thing about the motobecane is that it has cantilever brakes which give you more room to fit tires and fenders. the main problem i'm having with clearance is depending on the gearing and tire size, the tire can rub the seat tube and/or not leave room for fenders. I'd like even bigger tires but i doubt i could go much larger than 700x42 or so

if you want room for fenders and fat tires, just go with an old mountain bike
