    2x10 SRAM Crankset... Bashguard available?????

    I just pulled the trigger on a new Scalpel 29er (2x10), and I really want to put a bashguard on it. I am pretty tough on chainrings and know it will take no time at all to destroy the outer ring on this bike.
    The way the front sprocket mounts to the spider makes it look like it is not possible to install a BG. Thoughts?

    How about something like a MRP XCG, BB or tab mount?

    I have a SRAM 2x with a bash, but mine is the 64/104 BCD so it wasn't an issue for me.

    I'm not sure if anyone is making a 120mm BCD bash now or not. I haven't needed to look for one. As mentioned, you might look for a taco-style guard if the frame will take one.

    You can swap to a 3x spider (~$45) and run a traditional 104mm bash guard. Your options for the stock 120mm are extremely limited.

    Hey mate,

    I just got a Scalpel too, and I would be interested to know if you have found any chain ring protectors yet?
    Can you let me know if you find any?


    Thanks.

    Not exactly a bashguard, but will protect your rings and help keep you from dropping chains. Mountain Racing Products home of MRP, White Brothers, Kreitler, Tamer, and Power Grips | 2x
