26"x60mm fenders?

I'm looking for a set of of full coverage fenders for a Bridgestone CB-1. I presently have SKS Long Boards on a 700cc bike and would like to have some thing similar on the CB-1. It looks like SKS 60mm "long boards" are a different style than the 700cc fenders that I have so I'm looking at different models. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Woody

I have a set of the VO Smooth 60mm fenders for 26” tires on my LHT. They work and look great, but the are aluminum and not plastic.

Havent had a chance to mount them, or even open the box yet though...

I have the 60mm SKS Longboards and they are NOT like the other "Longboard" fenders they sell. They're not nearly as long, and they do not have the long mud flaps, either. I was pretty disappointed when I got them. They work okay for what they are, I guess. At least the silver color looks good with my silver bike frame.

I read a couple posts talking about the 2 different kinds of SKS 60 MM long boards, and am leaning towards the 60mm Cascadias in silver in part because I know what I will be getting. I haven't figured out if 60 mm would be enough for Schwalbe 2.15"/55mm Big Apples or Big Bens or if a 65mm fender would be to much to live with the 1.9" tires I have now.

I wouldn't really go much past 50mm tires with 60mm fenders. I've got 1.75" (~45mm) tires on my bike with Velo Orange stainless 60mm fenders and there is perfect clearance. As a side note the Velo Orange fenders are easily the best I have used.

oh sorry, I actually have the 65mm SKS fenders with Big Apple 2.15" and the fit is perfect. I just wish they were actually longer behind the tires. Sorry no close-up pics.

I ended up ordering a set of SKS p65 longer longboards on Ebay from Bells Bike Shop. They show both kinds of "P65" as different items, and when I contacted them they assured me I would get the right longer ones.

i tend to agree with @lax
@bark_eater - the rule of thumb i've generally followed is that the fender s/b 10mm wider than the tire. i would look for something 70mm if you can find something.

2.15" tires are basically 55mm. Trust me, the width of 65mm fenders is perfect.

2.15" tyres will fit 65mm fenders. I have tried 2.10 inch tyres with aggressive thread on my 26 inch MTB with 65mm fenders and they fit nicely. Bearing in mind that your tyres are basically road tyres, there shouldn't be any rubbing.
