I *think* that the Honjos -- perhaps other aluminum fenders, too? -- are
more prone to cracking if they are improperly installed with stress at
attachment points. I base this on a sample of 1 pair of Honjos that cracked
at the brake bridge -- I've owned at least 1 other pair of Honjos, at least
2 other pairs of alum fenders, and 2 prs of Berthouds, as well as any
number of plastic fenders, of all makes -- so take this suggestion with
caution.

I do think that SKS and PB fenders are less prone to breaking at stress
points; at any rate, I've installed any number of these sloppily and never
had a pair break. And I don't know about others, but I do have to be
careful not to dent my Berthouds.

And FWIW again, I've never found well-attached SKS or PB fenders unduly
rattly or flexy even on rough ground, and would probably choose one of
these makes for the Matthews if I put fenders on it again because I know I
can kick and bash these around without damaging them. (It had PB Cascadias
on it until I installed Big Ones, which are too fat to put fenders over and
avoid excessive (*) toe overlap.

* I tolerated toe overlap with the Cascadias over the 51 mm Furious Freds,
but the BOs are 1 cm wider. TCO is tolerable with the BOs if sans fenders.
