    2016 Genius 710 bash guard? What is that red thing?

    I have a 2016 Genius 710. Where do you all mount a bash guard for a 1x setup?
    It has an ISCG 05 pattern but only two threaded holes instead of three. That brings me to my next question...What is that red adapter thing? Mine was in the two holes but not attached to anything. Is that where you are supposed to mount ISCG 05 compatible accessories?

    Thanks for the help

    It's to protect the carbon frame in the unfortunate event in which the chain comes off.

    I wondered the same thing when I got mine

    That makes more sense now. I found out that Scott sells an ISCG 05 adapter that provides a third hole and allows you to mount ISCG 05 compatible accessories.
    I won't need the red chain drop protector if I mount an ISCG chain guide.

    Thanks for the help.

    I've never needed a chain guide for my 1x setup. Ever since I slapped a 36T front chainring I've been hitting logs and large rocks with the bigger chain ring....time for a bash guard

    I could also hop over them but damn....there are times on the trail I'm so exhausted I just don't have the energy haha
