    AJ's FrameGuard with Ventana

    Anyone use the above product on a Ventana with a X-Type BB? Does it replace the RF drive side spacer?

    Paddle.......as long as the two are similiar in their width dimension you won't need to use the 5mm spacer.

    Interesting product , here's the link : AJ's website



    later, Chad

    AJ himself says it will work. Think I may try one to try and keep this frame unscathed around the BB area.

    In an attempt to keep my new BB from looking like yours, I have ordered an AJ's FrameGuard. Will let you know how it works out.

    Now that's something I really can manage without. I can't remember the last time my chain came off the granny ring and the damage is minimal.

    I haven't had it happen very often. Last time it happened the BB area was already scarred upalready, so that wasn't a problem. I'm thinking it might act as a lightweight chain retention device, but we'll see. I have exchanged my e. thirteen bash guard for a RF model and dropped 140 grams or more not counting the difference between steel and aluminum chain ring bolts. For my use, the e. thirteen was overkill anyway.
