Fender and kickstand for Giant toughroad

I have a 2016 toughroad SLR 1 (for this problem this should be equal to the SLR2) without the rack.

I want fenders and a kickstand. I found this fender on the Canadian website, also on a ductch and UK... but not the US website. I couldn't find a US source. Does anyone know where to source that in the US? If I get desperate I try to buy it from the Canadian website if they ship to the US.
I asked the LBS to order that for me, but they take forever (need minimum order to get something shipped). So I'm getting a bit impatient after 2 weeks and them not even being ordered by LBS. (and yes I will let them know in advance if I end up ordering from the internet so they don't end up ordering it)

LBS told me kickstand can't be mounted due to disc brakes. I found this Giant kickstand that looks like to be made for the toughroad and comes with longer skewer. I don't see how the disc brake would interfere. Does anyone have this or a different kickstand on the Toughroad?

Are the skewer mounted kickstand and the fenders mutually exclusive, or can they be both be mounted?
alternatively I could find a 3rd party kickstand that seems to get mounted on the chainstay or by the BB. But would like confirmation it actually works on the Toughroad.

And is there some inherent advantage or disadvantage to a skewer, chainstay or BB mounted kickstand? I'm really perplexed why kickstands are such an afterthought. do people just lay bikes on the ground or find a post to lean onto?

I researched the net and also consulted LBS, so the Best & Brightest of BF are my hope. i posted similar questions to the SLR 2 thread, but thought as a standalone thread the specific problem gets more attention

I finally got my fenders, more by accident. I had a flat today and went to LBS to buy some more spare tubes. While there I asked about the fenders again and was told giant doesn't sell the fenders in the US (and I had tried to order from their Canadian site but they only ship to CN). But one of the mechanics said one of the Planet Bike fenders they have would fit. So they installed that for me and now I have full fenders for heavy rain.
Installation actually took quite long since they were busy and the mechanic accidentally cross-threaded the fork attachment because some dirt was in there. Now I have a new fork....

Now I can ride through puddles and the mud without worrying about my drivetrain (and myself).

Still looking for a kickstand. So far the lack of one hasn't been too bad, though.

Can you post some pictures of your bike with fenders? Would love to see how they look on it. You can get some kickstands that mount to the chain stay on the non-drive side. Of course, the bike might have enough room for one down near the bottom bracket, also...one of the "sandwich" types that clamp down on the top and bottom of your chain stays with a through-bolt in between.

Sorry if the picture doesn't show it well, but I'm limited to 96 kb and it was raining so I didn't want to move it out. It is turning more and more into a touring bike....

One thing to consider is replacing the wheel is more difficult due to less space. I found out shifting to smallest chainring and rear cog helps. but i also had to use the derailleur clutch. not sure if the SLR 2 has one (my SLR 1 has SRAM X7).

Edit: actually lestat posted pictures that show more detail and looks very much like mine.

I am glad you posted about this, I will be posting similar posts.. I will probably want a Rear Fender atleast for my 2018 SLR2 that I just ordered. I plan on putting racks on and modding some other things.. I want the bike.. for long hauls.. for both paved and dirt/gravel trails..
My initial Mods will be:
Bottle cage
Seat
Grips to Ergon G3
Rear Rack w/bag
Rear Fender

Secondary mods:
Front Fender
Change Large Cog of Crank from 44 to 48 tooth cog


This is the model I bought.

It's not really a "kick" stand but I have one of these and consider it brilliant.

Not a thing wrong with them, I just like making light fun of them, there are a few times I wish I had one, parking a shiny carbon bike on the pavement is not ideal at times.
