Soid Full Fenders for 2.5 inch tire.

I have a Yuba Mundo Classico and I'm going to be purchasing a set of Hookworms in 2.5" (63.5 mm) size but I can't seem to find fenders that are wide enough for full tire coverage. Any ideas?

If you can squeeze 27.5" fenders in (and are willing to pay that much):

The SKS 75 U will clear a knobby 2.6" if the frame has room for the very odd flat/square profile: https://www.sks-germany.com/en/products/bluemels-75-u/

They are possibly the worst designed fenders ever, but nothing else will clear a tire that big. Be aware they make two versions, one has a very short rear fender.

These are pretty good:

https://velo-orange.com/collections/...m-fenders-700c

They are made for 700c wheels, but it is easy to change the curve to fit a smaller wheel. Basically, if you make the fender a little wider, the radius is reduced. I did this to fit them over 26 x 2.3 Rat Trap Pass tires. Whether the fender will then fit a 2.5" Hookworm, I can only guess; but if your frame has room for fenders, I'm pretty sure you can make them work.

Another pricey option is the Honjo H98. They are long and thick. 75mm width may be too tight. The Lightning Bug tunes up with them.
