 Post subject: Bash Guards and other such devices

Yesterday and spent some time getting over logs and on several occasions I think I hit the chain ring. (Yesterday was the first time I had really had to get over logs, so my technique is not all it should be).

But, on the Spesh Enduro, the cable routing is a bit shit. It goes under the crank.

Image

I'm not sure I would ever damage these cables, I guess the chain ring would take all / most of the impact.

The cables are routed correctly, if I fully compress the suspension, the cables almost touch the bottom of the frame but do not stretch.

I did not damage the chain ring, but it got me thinking towards solutions to offer protection in the event I keep hitting logs.

Any good bash guards out there for a direct fit chain ring? (SRAM X01)
Are they chain ring size specific? I have a 32t direct for ring, but might want to swap it out to a 30t for specific events.

I use one of these on the proper bike but it does need the ISG tabs. Its only really been "used" once in a race where the drop was a lot higher than it looked. If your frame doesnt have the tabs they also sell the adapter to sit behind the BB shell.

I use a Gamut SXR

It handles the odd scrape well and keeps the chain in check on the rough stuff

I do have an ISCG mount.
I need to measure it to determine if it is ISCG05 or ISCG-OLD.

If your bike is a 2015 model then it'll be new type ;) ;)

If the very latest versions are the 2016 models, then yes, mine is the 2015.
It will take two mins to measure it later.

I like the Gamut bash guard and the one Vanders posted.

I can't find the MRP AM Guide in black. Looks to be sold out everywhere.

E13 do a couple of options, this one, which has an extra rear guide as the chain leaves the chain ring,

or this one, which is a little simpler

http://www.wiggle.co.uk/ethirteen-trs-c ... e-iscg-1x/

both cover the same size range, 28 to 38 with three different size guard attachments 30, 34 & 36T DMB

I got the Gamut because its smaller than the others so its a bit neater, came with lots of washers too which makes a change.
