    Longer bolts for bashguard?

    Hey,

    So i am ordering stuff online for xmas, and i just got a new to me bashguard(thanks to kntr) and my old crank bolts arent long enough, as i suspected...

    So my question is is there a set size for a crank bolt that fits an e13 bash? Also, can anyone find them on pricepoint cause im having trouble...


    Thanks.

    Yep

    Any 15mm chainring bolt should do it (with spacers)

    e13 bash guards require an intermediate sized chainring nuts and bolts. 12mm to 13.5mm, which are said by e13 support to be common on many downhill cranks, but not on lighter weight triple cranks which are normally 8mm. (I found out the hard way after buying e13 brand 15mm bolts that were too long for the e13 Turbocharger bash.)

    Spacers with common 15mm chainring bolts could work if single ring, but interfere with shifting if a duel ring.

    Stylo triple running turbo bash instead of big ring.
