    We the people ... Can I install a Bashguard?

    I have some how managed to destroy two front sprockets on my DH bike. I want to install a bashguard but i only have the one sprocket in the front, so i cant simply replace my largest sprocket. How do i do this, and what do i need to do it?

    You CAN install a bashguard theres no doubt about it because any bike will take one, dont know much about installing them but i do know you can also get a chainring with a built-in bash guard.

    Hope do the Integrated Bash Ring. What are you running in terms of a chainguide?

    The easiest way for us to help is if you give us some more info and post a pic, otherwise you can take your bike to your local bike shop, a mechanic will tell you everything you need to know

    more info please... what frame, what year, what crank.
    there are various types of devices/ bash guards. you can get the ring type ones. not really sure about then as i have never really used them.
    you can get bb fit ones. these fit on your bb cup instead of a spacer. i had one on my knolly dt for a short while before throwing a hammerschmidt on it. it was ok and served it's purpose but did have a tendancy to move when stuck hard.

    the more modern day one are iscg fit. depending how old your frame is. the most recent is iscg05, 03 is the older version.
    these iscg tabs are better as your chain device will fit securly gving your chain rings protection and keeping your chain tight.
    search google for iscg tabs and chain devices

    Expanding on what delirian said, if you don't have an ISCG mount you can still get a ISCG bash, you just need a BB adapter
