Fenders are my friend. Mudguards are marvelous.

And of course I'm obligated to link to Getinlost in Colorado, who posted a haiku about fenders.

Fenders enable me to ride my bike without getting the stripe up my backside. Fenders keep my shoes from getting soaked through except in the worst downpours. Fenders help keep muck and grit and salt away from the bottom bracket and other drivetrain parts. Fenders prolong the life of exposed cables. Fendered cyclists might attract wheel suckers.

What are some other benefits of fenders?

fenders look good, too. they are also a good place for reflective tape and interesting stickers.
 
They can also be quite stylish too.
 
To second illinoisfrank - yes - fenders can be hot, too.

anyone know where I can find white full coverage fenders for a 27" tire?
 
Anon, wider fenders (e.g. 45mm width) for 700c/29" tires should work. I've also heard of people using 26" fenders on 27" tire bikes.
 
I love my fenders, but the trailing end of the front fender wags at moderate speed and above. I need suggestions on a fix.
