Double/bashguard vs triple crank advantages for 6" travel frame?
Besides the obvious advantage of a bashguard and abit more clearance of the crank without a big chainring, why do you riders that use them like this setup? I plan on building up a 6" travel frame with a 6" fork( Fox 36) in front! The only disadvantage I can see is not having the big chainring for pedaling down hills and such for higher speed! I have only used triple cranks so far mainly on XC style frames! Just wondering if its worth trying a double because I am building it for more for going over stuff and drops and such than for speed! Thanks! TIG.
