    commuting tires and fenders for 29er

    Hello everyone,

    I have ordered the Cube LTD SL 29 2012, and I am looking for tires and clip on fenders for the bike.*

    The problem is that I don't know whether the fork and the frame of the bike have enough clearance to mount i.e. a big apple tire
    and secondly if any of the mudguards I have found can cover the tire and provide adequate protection.


    I have found these tires
    Schwalbe Big Apple Liteskin Tyre - Kevlar Guard at 2.00 or 2.35 width
    Schwalbe Big Apple Liteskin Tyre - Kevlar Guard | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com

    and Marathon Plus Reflex at 32mm width
    http://www.probikekit.com/eu/tyres-t...tyre-32mm.html


    and also these mudguards
    SKS Race Blade XL | Evans Cycles

    Wiggle | Zefal Sheild Snap-On Mudguard Mudguards

    ZEFAL > mudguards > Sets > SHIELD
    I have chosen these fenders because I think that the bike doesn't have eyelets and also doesn't have place for the screwed mudguards

    Thank you in advance for any help you can give me



    * the bike specs can be found here
    Cube LTD 29 SL 2012
    fork: Fox Evolution 32 Float 29 RL, 100mm, Lockout
    wheelset: Sun Ringlé Radium wheelset, 32 spokes, QR
    tires: Schwalbe Rapid Rob Performance 29x2.25
    rims: Schwalbe MTB SV19 29

    Other Info that might be needed
    I am going to commute for 20 to 30 kilometers per day. The surface will be 90% road with some potholes and 10% pavement.

    At the following link, hovering over the picture you can have a pretty nice zoom of the bike. I think I saw the rear eyelets you are talking about, but I can't see any front eyelets also

    Also here are some pictures of the SL and two other models pro and acid which have the same frame but different forks

    It seems that at the rear I could mount a stable mudguard. At the front I am not sure (I guess it has to do with the fox fork). You can also see the clearance for the tire at these pictures.
