    M6 bash guard

    My bike is on order and I am collecting the finishing touches. What bash guard are you running...pros/cons. I'm doing the XO1 build and am looking to protect the 30t chain ring with an ISCG type chain guard.

    I've had good luck with the MRP AMG guide but I'm not sure if I need or want the extra chain guide on the top. Is it overkill to run XO1 with a chain guide?

    Blackspire seems to be the best setup. It will be the one I get if I decide I need one. I wouldn't want one with a chain guard. Check out Vik's build:

    I second the Blackspire Bruiser. It's perfect for a 1x11 setup, which is why I ordered one for my Mach 6 X01 build.

    No need for chain guide on 1X11.
    I started with MRP AMG, too big and it cracked.
    Now using Blackspire Bruiser, much better.

    Want a Blackspire Bruiser, but can't find the one I want over here in Scottishland. Blast and damn it!

    You can order it directly from Blackspire. If they won't ship to you send it to me in Canada and I'll re-post it to you.
    Safe riding,

    I looked at the the Blackspire site and it would cost more to just send it than buy it! But that's a very kind offer though, cheers. Don't have the frame yet, still awaiting delivery, so can wait a wee bit longer. Chain Reaction Cycles now have them in though. Just not in the size I want. Typical!

    Hi all, I am ordering the Blackspire for my M6. Do I want the ISCG05 or just the ISCG? Does it matter? What's the difference?

    Thanks!
