    Driveline Chain guards

    I have been looking at getting a chain guard for my bike for a little while but the choices are extremely limited in the 130mm BCD 56t range. I have seen the Driveline super guard g2 available on ebay and I was wondering if anyone has experience with their stuff. I also found on driveline's website the G4 guard which I fine much more astheticly pleasing but I can't source it, does anyone have any suggestions or alternatives?

    I have Driveline guards on a couple of bikes. They come with extra long chainring bolts for mounting. Details of drivetrain vary though from a bike to bike, so expect that you may need extra spacers for fine-tuning. I have no complaints of any sort - the guards work fine for me. In spite of their price, they are worth the money. If you just wanted to buy those bolts separately, you'd be already up for the half of the price of the guard with hardware.

    Well a month later I found a solution to my dilemma. While perusing my spam folder I notice a response to the email I sent to the manufacturer Driveline through their website I sent a bit less than a month ago informing me that they have no US distribution but they would be more than happy to sell to me direct so I am ordering 4 G4 chain guards 56t 130mm BCD in black for my 2 bikes and the pricing is very reasonable even after a hefty shipping fee they work out to about $24US each. I will update with pictures and maybe my impressions when they arrive if anyone cares to know.

    Well the my driveline bash rings arrived this morning and I threw them on. I had to hit my LBS to get some chainring bolt spacers and I had to combine the bolt side of the CR bolts that came with the guards with the sleve side from some double ring bolts I had but I think I have the spacing right now. I will update after I get some mileage on them.


    I added a picture so you can see that I put two chain guards
