    2x10 drivetrain with bashguard

    So for the guys who have ordered or are considering ordering bikes with the 10 speed drivetrain -- have you considered what bashguard or bashring to get?

    Based on this thread: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=648177 it looks like there are no options?

    I have a bashguard on my 3x9 Rockhopper and hit it all the time going over logs, so I'm sure I would destroy my big ring on the 2x10 setup with some sort of bash protection.

    According to this thread there will definitely be bashguard setups, just need to get a 3x10 crank I think:

    I went with 2x10. No bashring planned. Don't think much dmg will happen when your chain is on the "big ring" 95% of the time.

    Nothing fits the 386 FSA cranks (3 bolt 86 BCD) as far as I know.

    Hi,

    Shimano SLX cranks come in a 22/36/bashgaurd configuration. I bought these cranks to replace my FSA 386 (27/39 chainrings) that came on my Motobecane Fly Ti 29er XX bike. I took off the bashguard to save weight. I don't miss the top end gearing at all. I can still ride fast on the downhills in the 36x11 but the smaller 22 chainring with the big 29er wheels is a blessing on the long brutal climbs I encounter here in Colorado. The added weight of the SLX is minimal. The SLX cranks like the FSA 386 are rated for 9 speeds. However, they both shift fine with the SRAM XX drivetrain.

    Thanks,
    Kevin
