    New question here. Aqua, XTR bashgaurd?

    I did some crank swapping and had to put the XTRs on the Mantra. You run that SS setup, right?

    E-

    Aqua cut down the spider arms at the middle chainring bolt holes... I think most SS riders do this if they run XTR. I have only seen one chainguard that bolts to the outer holes in XTR cranks, and it is actually more of a skinny ring than a bash guard... Hollywood has one on his rig. I think it is from Jerico.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Yup

    Just got done riding with Aqua. Er, half done any way. Hmm, I kinda doubt it was only half now that I think about it.

    I will be cutting the XTR down. The Mantra is not exactly a basher. The new Haro SS Werks will be the basher. (Get it? SS Works. Ha, I hang out at a Specailized shop. I crack myself up. Phew, that was a funny.) Anyways, the swapping has begun.

    I think he's gonna goof on me. I could only make the climb and was REAL tired and didn't feel up to "playing" on top. An old bud shows up at the top. I got a shuttle DOWNHILL as he had ridden down and up. My good luck.

    How about a 6 pack?

    Not the bike, silly.
    Could/would you do that to mine? Polished and everything?

    Some peeps are using lye or oven cleaner. I'm not into inhaling chemicals. So, I used my trusty dremel with a wire wheel, followed up with copious amounts of hand sanding/polishing.

    I just did my new XT crank.

    Moi...into bling? Ju talkin' to me?


    I've been wanting to try the Jones on stuff like this...but attempting it with that naked, unprotected, pimpy XTR/Boone ring...I fear that it will get eaten alive. So, this setup will be used for the chunkier rides
