    Fenders for Extraterrestrials?

    Iíve got ETís on my Troll and would love to fender it since one of the ways I use it for commuting. Iím having trouble finding full coverage fenders that work well with the 2.5 tire width. Anyone found anything that works?
    Fat, tired.

    Is this bike stuff?
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    I don't know exactly which ones are available but there are fenders for that set up

    I use Planet Bike Cascadias - they're designed for 2.35s, but work well enough for the ETs at 2.5, even on Rabbit Holes. I mounted mine with DIY stays, made some more clearance and made them stiffer - the biggest issue I found wasn't coverage, it was clearance as they bounced around.

    For ETs I would go with Flat 65 by Honjo, Flat 65 | SimWorks
    I saw them here Stephanie‚Äôs Surly Wednesday with Studs and Sim Works ‚Äď Morgan Taylor | The Radavist when I was looking at potentially adding fenders to Gorilla Monsoon

    Those do look nice - I used Honjo mounts for my Cascadias.
