    bash gaurd question

    I bought a gaurd for my sram s1000. I'm running a 2x10. I need spacers because when I put it on its rubbing my front derailler. Anyone know where I can get the spacers and longer bolts?

    If it is a 2x10 specific crank don't think it is a good idea to put a bash guard with spacers on it.that's why I go with a triple the bash guard replaces the big ring.

    Why wouldn't it be a good idea if I get longer hardware it will be just as tight as it came stock I thought.

    I never thought of this being an issue, I also purchase 3 chainrings up front and remove the third one for the bg.

    have you tried changing your limits so it doesn't hit the bash?

    Depends on which front der you have but if you do a quick google search there's tons of articles are there.

    Normally there are two screws that adjust your upper and lower limits.

    Having hits being absorbed by bolts only without having the ring resting in crank arm slots seems risky and is sense less abuse!

    I bought a Giant Trance 29er X2, with what sounds like a similar setup to Whiterider. I haven't found a bash guard yet that would fit adequately! Taco styles are out due to the GXP bb, and nothing seems to fit with this crank/derailer setup. The best option seems (unfortunately) to replace the crankset. The new "AM" Truvativ X9 comes 2x10 with an aluminum bash guard and the same chainring sizes, and will fit fine with derailer, but I'll be waiting until I wreck what is on there before I go jumping into new cranks...

    The only bash gaurd I found for a 38t was on bbgbashgaurd.com it was only 25 dollars with shipping. Took it to the lbs for longer bolts fits great.

    Check out the Blackspire Defender, might be what you are looking for. I have one on my X0 2x10 cranks and it works great. Comes with special chainring bolts so bashguard mounts outside the big ring.
