    Bash guard size

    First post here guys and needing a bit of help,i have bought a mountain bike second hand and it needs a bit work done on it.

    Firstly it needs a new bash guard how do i know which size to get it has 5 screws to hold it in place and the distance between the screws is roughly 77mm here is a link to the actual bike with specs.
    The Raleigh Dorado from Malleys

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Those cranks use a non standard bashguard. Typically the bash bolts to the chainring spider in the same place as the middle and big chainrings. Yours doesn't, and I have no idea where you'd even source a new one.

    Just ride the bike without one. Almost anyone here that runs a bashguard takes the big ring off first, otherwise they just run the three front rings with no guard.

    With a distance between bolts of 77mm, I believe that means the bcd is 130. There are cyclocross basguards that size, but they are usually pretty big (39T+) so you wouldnt be gaining much clearance
