    LIght ISCG 05 Bash Pads

    I did a search on "bash" but nothing since 2013, and those were all rings.

    The ebay "ISCG 05 bash guard" that is 3D printed claims to be 20g (without bolts). ("0.7 oz.") Maybe the bolts needed are about 7g each, so 34g complete?

    Has anyone tried one?

    Have fun!

    Personally, if I'm going to have a lower bash, I'd also prefer an upper guide.

    This looks like a good low $$ option
    I like 'em long, low, slack and playful

    Thanks Hokie. I did happen across that one, but I don't need any upper guides. I see they do sell a version that is only a bash guard, but then I also saw that they are shipping from Russia, so would probably rather not.

    To clarify, I don't need cheap. I want low weight but still works. I never had one before and prefer to ride with finesse over relying on a bash guard, but I guess with my newer bike having a lower BB, I have touched my chainring on things a couple times. And with press-fit in a carbon frame, maybe that's not good. So, just looking for something light weight to help protect the BB. If that's not a concern, and these things only protect the chainring, then I won't even get one. I'm still on a cheap steel chainring so I don't care about preserving that.
    Have fun!

    Might want to reconsider that one. I encountered a rider who folded his 1x chainring over on the trail, which of course made for a nasty hike off the trail at sunset.

    For me, with 1x bikes, I won't ride WITHOUT a taco bash. I don't think they really do much of anything to protect your bb. It's more about protecting your chain and chainring from impacts. Hit something like a rock or even a log hard enough, and you're going to damage stuff that may well have you hiking out.

    I use slightly more robust guards (MRP and Blackspire with alu carriers), but the concept is the same.
