Fenders that fit low-clearance Bianchi?

Hey folks!
I have a '97 Bianchi Campione d'Italia that I'd like to put fenders on. However, the clearance between the tires and brake calipers is no more than a few millimeters (as seen in photos).
I've only seen a couple options out there (namely the SKS Germany Raceblade Pros and, possibly, the SKS Speedrockers) and am open to suggestion.
For aesthetic purposes I prefer a full fender, otherwise I'd just get Ass Savers and call it a day.
Anyone got any ideas?


Not a lot of clearance to work with

In Portland, it is common to see tight bikes like yours with full SKS and the like fenders cut at the fork crown and brake bridge. River City Bicycles sells a kit of SS brackets that make the mounting easy and look good. Go to their website.

These ones, I'm guessing?

I have no personal experience with these, but the local road bike guys run them on their newer road specific bikes in the winter.

I used Raceblade on my Bianchi, was good, but I guess I had more clearance than yours....
the problem is that the frame is tight already and the monoplaner does not help the situation.

edit:

looks like my only pics are from the time after the Raceblade fell off, still it can be seen that it had a tiny little more space, and the New Success Modolo was no issue
sorry for the CA
