    Best affordable bashguard?

    Hello all.

    I am looking for a bash guard to go with my new chain set which is a triple chain ring, largest being 42t.

    The main reason I want a bash guard this time round is because my other chain set has a bent middle ring and slightly bent on the 42t due to there being no protection and my clumsy riding.

    However, I cannot find a 42t+ bash guard at a realistic price. All I can find is these insane designs at 80+. Trying to keep my budget low at the moment.

    Does any one have any recommendations?

    Try BBG bashguards, they're relatively cheap at ~$20.

    Thanks for that.

    Could I ask, what would be more appropriate to protect the 42t, a 42t or a 44t bash guard?

    You can't find a 42t bash guard, as no one really needs them.

    If you look at riders using bash guards, they have dumped the outer chain ring, and replaced it with a bash guard, you really would need a 4 ring crank to put on a 42t or larger bash ring, and these aren't a product which is made.

    You can pick up a Hope Bashguard (32-34t / 36-38t or 40t) for less than 35, most good bikes shops will stock Hope, for online, just about everyone stocks it, for local to you, go to Ken Ellerker, and talk to them about what you want.

    I see.

    Makes sense. Was just pondering the idea of them this morning. I tend to ride my 42t the most as I use my bike for commuting as well as trials. Always have to stuff my trousers into my sock haha.

    Appreciate the shop, cheers.
