    New question here. bash guard with lateral clearance?

    just curious if anyone has, or knows of, a bash ring (32t coverage) that is a little bevel to the inner side to minimize chain rub when out in the high gears in back? i'd like to avoid spacing out my current bash if possible. thanks!

    I'm curious to know what chainline your using, using the current 50/51mm chainline on the external cranksets I have not seen any rubbing issues with bashguards using the full cassette in the rear.

    Running 2x9 with a triple SLX crank equipped with a bash, I don't get any rub on the bash. It's more on the FD if anything.

    yeah, haven't measured the chainline. i suspect it might be that or size of bash (i think it's a fairly large one). will check it out...
