    46T Guard

    Does anyone know where I can find a real simple design, 5 bolt, 46T chainring guard in black?

    I looked but could not find one. I ended up using a 44t Salsa Crossinguard with a 44t ring.

    46 "usually" isn't an option for a single ring front setup bacause you have to run it on the inside position and "most" frames usually don't have the clearance on the chainstays for this. 44 is a stretch for this sometimes, requiring spacing of the BB.

    That must be why 46T guards aren't readily available. Back to the drawing board, I guess.

    +1 for grinder to chainring. I had never done it before either but took a 52t aluminum ring and ground down the teeth with an angle grinder in under 15 minutes. Works great and is really cheap if you have one on hand or can get it used/cheap.
