    34t Carbon fiber 110mm guard

    Maybe this topic has already been covered, but I can't seem to find the answer, but I need a carbon fiber guard for a 34t with a 110mm BCD for my SS XC racing machine. Thank you very much for the help.

    What are you planning to guard yourself from with carbon fiber?

    Only CF guards I know of are the FSA ones, but they're 42 and 44 T-sized with a 130 BCD. If you want a 110 guard off-the-shelf, you're pretty much limited to Al.

    I just need something to keep my chain on my chainring. And I want something light. Does anyone do custom carbon jobs?

    Contact Stephen at Fibre-Lyte. I have ordered a lot of carbon stuff from them and they just built me a carbon fibre 32t spiderless chainring for my single speed as well as some carbon pulley guides for my Surly Singulator to go with the carbon pulley. I can publish some pictures or send them too you if you like.

    They do amazing work and will do custom parts for you. I think that the 34t carbon guard would be easy enough to do.

    They know Carbon.

    If you are running SS do you really need a guard or guide

    Carbon is not what you want for a bashguard IMO.

    The few grams you may save will not be worth any CF splinters stuck in yer foot.
    The wheel is a extension of the foot

    I think that a carbon guide (guard is the wrong word to use in this case) would be more than fine. If he is just using it to help keep the chain one then I do not see a problem. I am sure that the person will not be jumping logs with this set up.

    Ya it borders on stupid light but I am very happy with it and it rides very well. It is a solid build for being light. I have ridden it pretty hard at first but will take it easy after its first run.

    My method is even lighter. No guard ring at all. I have never need one to keep the chain in place. Straight-cut tooth ring, good chainline and tension, 1/8" SS chain.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Are you using a frame with SS specific droupouts?

    I have SS-specific frames. I do not use chain guards on my 1xwhatever bikes either. Do not drop the chain off the outside.
