Inexpensive aluminum bash...has to be good, thick, and tough.
e.13 bash rings suck the life out of anything sacred when it comes to drivetrains. They are fragile. I tagged mine on a log when I wasn't even on the bike...(hike'a'bike)...when I lost my footing. Now it's got spiderweb cracks all up'n'down that schizzle! This is the new style e.13 a'la Dannihilator's ride.
I always use a torque wrench. My old clear poly bash had spiderweb cracks that originated at the bolt holes. I always use a torque wrench. They look like over tightening cracks because I never even smacked that daggum thing on squat. I always use a torque wrench.
I'm sick of disposable crap produced from companies relying on their earned reputation...and then producing crap to save money.
I need a decent aluminum bash at a decent price. I'd prefer it to be thicker than some silly chain-keeper singlespeed POS. I still want it to serve the purpose of a bash...though I rarely bash.
Light isn't important.
