Marathon XR 26"x2.25 tires on LHT or Rivendell Atlantis?

Has anybody tried the Marathon XR 26x2.25 tire on either the LHT or the Rivendell Atlantis? If so, how about fenders as well?

BTW, I'm aware of the official max tire sizes per Surly and Rivendell's websites. But I've put a 2.1" on a Long Haul Trucker and there was plenty of room to spare. I spoke to Rivendell the other day, and the fella on the phone didn't know off the top of his head what the max tire size is now.

Anyway, I'm curious if anyone has any real world experience here. Thanks!

Ues, no problem with that widest tire. I thought it was 2.00 though. And I ran it with fenders at the same time. muds gunks up the fenders as you'd expect. 7000+ miles, 2 flats, many miles left on them.
