Chain guard question
 
I have a VERO Triple 50/39/30 crankset on my bike (http://www.fullspeedahead.com/produc...03930-CRANKSET). I would like to install a circular chain guard on the outside of the largest chainring, something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/160942741021

But, as you can see on the Vero crankset picture, there are no extra holes for the bolts (unless I'm missing something).

Is anyone aware of a similar chainring chain guard that attaches with a different system, like clips or similar?

Thanks in advance.

You would just use longer bolts for the rings and guard together. The listing says the guard comes with them,but it would be a good idea to ask the seller how long they are in advance.

The New Brompton spider crankset made by Stronglight is a specific 130 bcd chainring with a separate set of mounting holes
for a plastic snap in chainguard.

but the intention is not a derailleur triple so wont have the shifting features .

Swiss made Florian Schumpf has chainguards that are dished to eliminate the spacer.. CHF

But as typical in CX single ring setups there were 2 guards ..


2 decades ago I got a chainguard ring for a 50t. but that was long ago I think it was
thru Nashbar , but of course they dont have any now.



1 was in place of the inner ring, the chainring in the outer position, spacers then the outer guard flange.

Bike Friday also has their own sources of guard rings .. they have retail sales..

Thanks for the responses. I can see now the longer bolts would use the same holes that keep the crank arm and larger chainring together.

As a curiosity, an additional search on Google rendered this plastic chainguard that attaches to the crank arm extraction thread:
