    Cranksets w/ bashguard

    What kind of setups are you guys running.
    Please include the weight of the crankset and BB. Looking to upgrade and trying to find a durable crankset/BB/bashguard thats not too heavy.

    Thanks

    Im running raceface atlas with dual rings and bashguard on my nomad - for about 6 months.

    Website says 955g with triple rings and BB.

    Pretty happy with the setup - smooth shifting and super stiff.

    i'd be surprised if there wasn't a lot of xt hollowtech 2's out there with bashguards of one form or another, guessing somewhere under 900g for that setup (depending upon the bashguard).

    I recently put on a RaceFace Diabalous and it's heavy (lists @ <1200g) but boy-o is it solid. Nicely adjustable chainline too. It's like 200g heavier than what I had before (FSA V-Drive MegaExo) but it's soooo more solid - I just do not notice the weight.

    Just switched my 960's to 760's with a bashguard. Don't know the weight but they shift as good if not better than the 960's.

    If you want DURABLE you need Saint.
    If durable is OK, you can live with Hone or LX

    it also depends on your weight and riding style. For AM, I dont see the point of having saints (unless you are a heavy guy)

    Totally agree.

    And I violate that as a rule myself, not ashamed to admit.

    I'm just a firm believer that if I break it once and it's not from regular wear & fatigue, then my mass + riding style + ride choice == need more burliness. I'm willing to pay the price in $ and # to have hardware under me that will bring me home.

    I think u can also combat that problem with clipless pedals

    I have never had that happen to me ever once.. (ridden clipless my whole life practically)

    But yeah, the other option is a good bashguard

    XT or Atlas with a light weight bash like Gamut.
    I personally use their aluminum bash because i'm not crashing it @ higher speeds often.. but even their plastic bash is pretty darn light.

    XT with a Dark Cycles Bash Guard. Not the lightest guard, but adds a little bling factor.
