    Anyone using a bashguard or anything like it?

    So I was out on a ride this past weekend and my big ring on the front crank came into contact with a rock, and the rock won. It broke one of the teeth clean off pretty much and then chipped/bent another tooth. So brings up the question, do any of you guys use any sort of guard for your front ring set?

    I have wanted to get one for my Seeker with a 2X10 drive train. I know there are a lot of guards that replace the big ring on a 3X8 set up and make it a 2X8 setup. I think SRAM sells a guard for a 2X10 setup that bolts over the big ring so you don't take it off. If I find it I will reply back. I have found something on the SRAM site but I am not sure how it works yet.

    I was looking around earlier and found these aluminum ones from BBG. They sell the Guard and the spacer separately but it looks like what we might need. They have all different teeth count and such. It says on their homepage that the regular style have a lifetime warranty if it bends or breaks, excluding their super light ones.

    I use a BBG on my other non-Airborne rig, they're very tough - great product.

    Awesome to hear then! I'm probably about to order one to prevent any further damage to my 36t ring.
