    Bash gaurd ?

    I hit a good size rock today on the Moonlander and trashed the 36t outer ring and bash gaurd. I never use the 36t only need the 22t and have been looking for a bash gaurd for it. (no luck) Nothing seems to fit.
    Any ideas other than just making one?

    What crank set do you run?
    Probably have to install a bash in place of the middle ring if you can, probably a 32 T?

    Crankset & BB Surly Mr. Whirly Offset Double, 22/36t

    No middle ring just had the 22/36t to begin with. I think I could just do away with the front derailleur.

    I have brought a couple from bbgbashquard.com. There are a lot of options and they are cheap.

    Thanks for the link.
    The bolt pattern is not the same on this Surly 22t.
    It looks like I need an adapter or different sprocket setup all together for a bash gaurd.

    With the extra clearance I may be able to skip the gaurd.

    If you want the 22T inner, near as I can tell, you're stuck. If you can run with a 30T or 32T you can swap out the spider and run a tradition SS style conversion.

    Universal Cycles -- Surly Mr Whirly Spider

    I'm running a 30T with an old e13 bash guard I had laying around, I replaced the MWOD chainring set with the 5x94mm spider. I had to cut down the e13's diameter and grind it a bit to make everything right:

    Blackspire C4 ring god. Just cut off the thin piece and use 3mm spacers to get it away from the chainring.
    There is no charge for awesomeness......or attractiveness.

    Good rep does not wash out the bad, nor the bad the good.

    Thanks Pursuiter, I think I will give the 30T a try this should keep me in the middle cogs in the rear. I like the setup you have.
