    Bash guard

    I'm thinking of replacing the big ring on the Yeti with SRAM crank with a bash guard for safety and protection.
    What should I consider?
    I'm afraid of heights so a 26'r fits me to a T.

    Perhaps someone over in the Drive Train or GD sub-forum can help you with this?

    Thou shalt not discuss bikes in the OC except in the approved bike area.

    Only rules is, there are no rules.

    And bikes aren't allowed. Except where they are allowed.

    Now you must bash yourself in the face with your bashguard as penance!

    Well bash guards are pretty simple. A piece of plastic that prevents you from mangling the small/middle ring when you run over stuff. e.thirteen and MRP are two manufacturers that immediately come to mind. I have an MRP chainguide and it works well. Just make sure to get one that fits the BCD of your crankset, and which is the correct size for your chainring. Usually the same tooth count or a tooth or two bigger.

    Sometimes they’re even made of metal. But there are better sub-forums on these boards to discuss such things than the Off Camber subforum… this place is full of loonies, who probably all have amazingly high Mensa-approved IQ scores.

    I hear the DIY Lights forum is pretty knowledgeable about bash guards. That's a secret though, so don't go around saying it to everyone.

    Bashguard face bashing passion.

    "I was so stoked on the ride today that I bashed my face on the bashguard instead of bashing with a rock or log. It's an E 13 so it took the hit easily. The bash is pretty gnarly now"

    Look in "Where are the Best Deals?" for the best bash guard deals and if that doesn't work try the Collegiate Racing forum.

    Bash guards have been around in one way or another since the medieval times.

    OK, so I guess that from a technical perspective there was a bashguard on my 1985 Peugeot mountain bike… perhaps it was the 44t chainring up front.

    Sounds a bit big for a modern bash guard. You sure we're talking about the same thing here?

    I don't use it riding the stuff I do. Almost never get off the middle ring.
    Its a big ugly weapon of teeth waiting to attack me at opportunity.

    If you like trying your luck at getting over big tree trunks and rocks, you are going to love the extra clearance. Make sure to get one that is just barely taller than your chainring, and no taller, for max clearance.

    Either there or Father Tone's basement.
