Best fenders for LHT? and more

I am wondering what good fenders would be for a 26" wheel LHT. I don't under stand how fenders fit, and what the widest fender that would fit, I want something good.

any other accessories suggestions would be nice. I just want the best for it.

Planet Bike Cascadia. My LHT is a 54cm with 26" wheels, they were easy to install, and allow for very wide tires.

Are they just the ATB Cascadia, that i was thinking of going with.


And I would love to go with the VeloOrange stainless, especially hammered, but I can see spending that much right now,

the VO brand are 50 dollars, which is not a whole lot more than the 42 for sks, or ~35 (?) for planet bike.

not trying to persuade you, just letting you know that the honjo 90 dollar fenders arent the only option anymore...

I've been looking at those VO fenders but I'm just not sure how they would look with black racks on a blue LHT.I know thats kind of lame thinking for a touring bike but I want it to look good when not touring also.
