    Reign 3 - which bash guard?

    After seeing some peoples awsome bike builds, its got me thinking of replacing the big ring to a bash guard instead. The reign 3 has raceface cranks and i was wondering which bash guard to go, an alloy RaceFace or a poly FSA??

    also what size would i need. this is all new to me.

    Thanks

    Either of those is nice. I like Race Face alloy better than the FSA I am using on mine. You need a 4 bolt 104 BCD guard. E13s are nice as well. They will all be between $20 - $35 for one. You may need longer chain ring bolts with the FSA lexan guard. I am not sure. Standard bolts will work on Race Face.

    No need to lose the big ring. Black spire make a nice bash guard to protect the big ring.

    Bash Guard

    I went for the Race Face - looks great works great. I considered the E13 but in the flesh it looked too industrial and fat IMHO.
