    *sigh* alright... chainguard install question...

    I got a phillips 3 speed a few months ago at a garage sale (for free). Since my gf didn't have a bike, I decided to gift it to her and fix it up.

    I ordered a chainguard from a website... but didn't get any hardware to mount the damn thing.

    any recommendations on what I could pick up at a hardware store?? I checked the website and it doesn't mention the inclusion of mounting hardware

    Any help would be appreciated

    You presumably need some coated P-clamps, either stock or self-made from a metal strip+heat shrink. Details depend on the guard and there is no guarantee that the specific guard will match the specific bicycle.

    ahh... i thought that would be a solution. the chainguard seems to be the correct size, but now I have another question:

    where should I put these clamps? I know the back end of the chainguard can be fixed onto the rear triangle by the dropouts, but where should I fix the front end onto? seattube? downtube?

    my apologies if I'm not making myself clear... it's been a while since I've really used BF

    You need three mounting points to fix the chainguard plane, so both the seat tube and down tube, or one of those + a point midway i.e. a metal strip joining to the the chain stay.
