    Crankset and chainguide questions

    Hey guys, im getting a new crankset and i've got a couple of questions.
    I've decided on the Deity Vendetta which brings me to the first question, does the crankset come with the BB or not? the way the sizings are listed im pretty sure it does, but i just need to be sure.
    Along with that im going to need a sprocket and the Alibi LT Sprocket looked good but i don't know how the fitting for a sprocket works...can anyone please enlighten me on that and/or if that chainring will fit the crankset.
    And the last thing i need is a chain guide so i was thinkin the Da Bomb Recoil DJ chain guide but once again, will it fit without ISGC tabs? i've heard they mount on the BB's will it work on the BB that (hopefully) comes with the crankset?
    BTW im really hoping this order works out because then i'll have an excuse to order these from CRC

    Thanks!

    It looks like that crankset does come with a BB, but I'm not sure about your other two questions.

    No worries, all three components are compatible with each other.

    Since Vendetta crankset is originally built for DH/FR applications, it is compatible with chainguides and also Da Bomb chain guide comes with a iscg to bb adapter.

    And yes, crankset comes with BB.

    I think that chainguide is designed to be used with a bashguard.

    Take note, the chain guide you linked to says "Item discontinued - no longer available to purchase."

    aww crap it was available only a week ago
    and yes HungarianBarbarian you are correct in saying that the chainguide is designed to be used with a bashguard but that is not a problem since i have one lying around.
    Thanks for the help guys but I will most prob not buying this crankset because another member in the drivetrain forum has convinced me to look at alternatives that wouldbetter suit my needs
    thanks
