    Bash Guard

    Every now and then I hit my chainring on a rock. Anyone running a bash guard? Is one better than the other? Looking at a MRP XC bash-guard version 2 or Absolute Black Taco. I rather have it an never use it then screwing up my chain ring and have a long walk back to the car. Btw I am 245 and ride a Hightower.

    Bash guards are required where I ride...lots of rock walls, log piles, etc.
    Just put this on my Kona Process 153:

    Are you running 1x? Both E13 and MRP make nice ones. Maybe post up or do a search in the Santa Cruz forum and see what folks have had success with.

    I run a taco style bash and donít like riding without one these days...it gets bashed a lot. I have had several, but just put on a MRP XCg micro, ecause I switched to a 28t front ring, so wanted the smallest possible guard. That thing is solid...real happy with it.

    I have been running a MRP XC for over a year and it has been great.
