Hi!

Because I have a new cyclocross bike Scott Addict CX and do not want to be dirty, I would like to buy a fender for it.
Which fender should I buy? I use bike only on road and have 700 x 32 tires.

I'm using the SKS Longboard, also with 32mm CX tyres in winter. While I don't have much experience with others, this one lives up to its "best coverage fender on the planet" moniker.

The SKS Chromoplastics work great with 32mm CX tires. It's been 3 years since I have them on my bike (only for about 5-6 months a year), and I am very happy with them - out of these 3 years, 2 in the Pacific north west, which means rain 5 days a week in the cold season.

If you can't get SKS or if your bike lacks eyelets, which I think it does, look at Planet Bike SpeedEz Hybrid fenders. They'll fit the cross tires and don't require the eyelets to attach them. They also facilitate faster removal. If you have eyelets and you don't need to remove them, I'd buy SKS first any day.

@dvincere

Thanks for suggestion! I will look for them.
It seems that it is impossible to get SKS fenders for CX by SKS dealers in my country, they would not even ordered it...so I will have to look abroad.
