    Sugino 94 bcd and bashguard?

    I need a bashring. I fear for my chainring in some rock gardens, and the chain and ring combo makes sliding over larger logs sticky.

    Problem being, the cranks I want to put one on are old Sugino 94 bcds. They are five bolt, and unlike most five bolt patterns, have one of the bolts "hidden" under the crankarm. (Do not have a digicam, no pics.) Pretty much every bashring I have seen, for this bolt pattern, assumes that the arms are oriented differnetly, ergo the cut out these rings have for the arm is positioned such that they will not function on my cranks. I can think of several options.

    1) Try to get a ring that is thin. (3\8ths" is the thickest possible)

    2) Track down a polycarb ring and hacksaw it to fit.

    Any further thoughts, or knowledge of skinny guards?

    3. Find a cheap set of used cranks at the LBS which fit the bash ring you want.

    I had the same issue with a 110 BCD suginos, and I ended up getting an old set of shimanos and using them. Works great withthe e13 polycarbonate bashring.

    Ahh, but then I can't use my 30t chainring, which for this project is essential.

    Just cut out the section at the crank arm. You will rarely, if ever, hit that area.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    For that matter, Girvin made rockrings specific to fit the sugino's (and ritchey which also had that style 5-arm as they had their cranks cold forged by sugino).

    It doesn't even need to be a polycarb ring. Cut down any ring that will fit, and it will do the job fine.

    ooo! oooo!

    I had those cranks, and the same dilemma.

    A Raceface bashguard fit perfectly. It still has the cutout, which will be askew and a little funny looking, but it works fine.
