    trek 4500 bashguard

    is it possible to put a bashguard on a trek 4500 with shimano m341 cranks? i know this is stupid but i can't find the chainring bolts on it. the ones on my fisher just stick right out in the open.

    Chances are that there are no chainring bolts on that crank. the rings are forever fuzed together by some press fit machine. So the rings aren't replaceable, which means, no-go on a bash guard on those cranks........ = (

    I found a set of brand new Truvativ Fire-X cranks on ebay for $50 and they came with an outboard BB and a bashguard. You might wanna have a look around and see what you can find if you have your heart set on using a bashy.
    Look, whatever happens, don't fight the mountain.

    That is untrue, you can fit a bashguard to the 341 cranks as long as they are 104 mm bcd.

    You definitely can put a bashguard on that. General rule of thumb, most 4 bolt designs are 104 mm bcd. Of course the most surefire way is to just check the Bontrager site for those parts.
