Chain Guard

I have the Ibex Corrida and I would like to get some kind guard it to protect my pant legs. I normally use a huge hair tie. It works fine but I am interested in something that will fit properly. I need something that will basically cover that third crank. I dont need it to cover the whole chain all the way to the back of the bike.

Here is a thread about chain cases.

They are very hard to mount to frames and cranks not designed for them.


That one is made by Sogreni, and probably going to be the best fit for your bike. They don't retail them in the U.S. but they will send you one direct. After shipping and customs it's going to run close to $100. Look at it closely. It would not be hard to fabricate, and for considerably less. A couple of P-Clamps, some solder, brass tubing or dowel, and an hour or two; you can make one that will actually mount for under $20

Shimano makes chain guards for some if it's cranksets(my Crosstrail has one,ordered one for the Safari),but TruVativ only makes them for their MTB sets.

You could try one of these:
