Hey everyone, first off I want to say excuse me if I am using the wrong terminology... I have been lurking on the site on and off for a while, haven't posted much, great site you all have going here!!!
I have a Specialized Stumpjumper, I am not certain on the year, but I think its a '99 or 2000 - and I want to get a bash guard for it. One that does not eliminate the large 42 tooth sprocket. I went to a local shop and they had a hard time finding one for me, everyone we tried was the incorrect bolt pattern. Then they realized it was a Sugino crank (5 bolt pattern with one bolt behind the crank arm), and they told me to look online, I might have better luck searching for a company called Engagement Ring.
So i looked online and found a few brands, but I am still not 100% certain which will fit. Mainly because I am measuring the distance on the bolt holes on the crank and it appears to be 90mm's from the center of one bolt hole to another (skipping one bolt). The ones listed say they are 94mm. Am I measuring incorrectly?? And, can I opt for a bash guard made for a 46 tooth sprocket for more clearance?
Any help would be greatly appreciated... and yes, I do use the large 42 tooth sprocket occasionally, i didn't want to remove it. Thanks!!!!
The brands that I think fit are:
Heim Super-D Bashguard https://www.cambriabike.com/shopexd.asp?id=13653
Blackspire Big Ring Protector http://www.blackspire.com/chain-guar...ring-protector
Engagement Ring Toothfairy http://www.bikeusa.com/components/ch...hainrings5.htm
Some pictures of them, although the only ACTUAL picture that I'd be getting is the 1st, from Heim. The other pics just represent the brand, not the one for the Sugino crank.
