After some research, I've decided to remove my 3rd, and 1st chain ring up front. i find that i never use my 1st gear, and rarely use my 3rd. without them, i can remove my front deraileur all together. I plan on getting a blackspire bashguard. any thoughts on how durable they are? i think my LBS is selling them for 35$.
I guess im doing this for a couple of reasons. 1. for extra clearance 2. my chain is always too loose. without my 3rd, i hope to remove a few links. 3. i cant wear pants when riding, itll always get caught in my front chainrings. 4. i guess save a little weight? 5. to protect my middle ring
well if everyone could input on if this is a good choice. thanks.
