    bash rings for new 96mm BCD pattern on M782 cranks??

    Got myself a new XT M782 crankset with the 30T middle ring, and would like to swap out the 40T outer ring for a bashguard.

    Anyone out there making 96mm BCD bashes yet?? I did some searches and couldn't find any. Also emailed some boutique bash makers, but haven't heard back from them.

    I haven't used an outer ring in 6 years, so I'm afraid I'll destroy the 40T pretty quickly since I'm in the habit of ignoring tree and rock rollovers.

    I haven't found any. I did talk to BBG about making some, but he wasn't very interested. He was willing to do a custom order w/ a minimum order of 20 units at $12 each. I thought about it, but wasn't excited about being an eBay vendor for the other 19 units.

    retarded product

    the single dumbest trend right now... offer another mountain triple.

    i spent 10 minutes on the phone with shimano tech support trying to get the BCD and they didn't know it. a little google search and here it's their rings or nothing.

    race face said they have no plans to support it with narrow wide rings, so it looks like a stupid crank that will be doing nothing but getting in my way.

    time to get a new raceface or something nice aftermarket...

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess. I love my 22/30 combo.

    The "retarded" part from my perspective is that the narrow/wide ring guys are slow to embrace it. The 96mm BCD would permit a native 30T ring, and probably a 28T ring using offset threaded holes (like the Wolf Tooth Components 30T for 104 BCD). 28T and 30T rings should be highly desirable for folks doing 1x10 on the cheap.

    You might ping Wolf Tooth about their plans. I asked them last summer and they said that were considering it but hadn't put their hands on one of the 96mm cranks yet.
