what FULL fenders do you prefer?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I like the stainless Gilles Berthoud fenders. I put them on my vintage chrome Paramount during the rainy season.

Well, I got my VO 45mm hammered finish fenders on.

Rode today and they worked fine. Needed a little dent to let the FD reach the small ring. Installation was no biggie.

Which do you like, don't like?
I have some planet bike ones on my cross bike commuter, they are ok, but looking for other ideas, I have read mixed reviews on the PB road variety.
I don't

Bikes: 1997 Giant MB, 2011 Felt Z85 Road Bike...and searching. Why didn't anyone tell me that when you get into biking you develop a sick need to own more & more bikes!?

Despite the opinions on which fender is better...I have to say I find these MK2's to be pretty sexy for a fender. Super sleek and clean looking. -- Yaowzaaaaaa!

I'm sure somebody has, but why? The protection they provide more than offsets the weight unless you're racing. I even manged to fit some on my old Trek. I'm totally sold on them.

I also use the Mk2 Crud Roadracers. My Basso won't take conventional mudguards (fenders).
