Crank Bash Ring for a Burley Canto

Hi All,

I have a Burley Canto, and would like to get a bash guard/chain ring protector for it, both to protect the bike and whatever/whomever it runs into. I have done some looking around, but can't figure out a good solution. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Mike

Many Taiwanese recumbents come with them but I can't find them sold separately. It requires spacers and longer chainring screws.

ICE (Trice) also makes one that is heavy duty and is mounted at the BB:

Many Shimano cranksets have optional bash guards but I rarely see them sold separately.

fixed!

I ordered and received a bash ring from the folks at purelycustom.com (http://www.purelycustom.com/p-39-bas...53t-5x130.aspx) ; I haven't installed it yet, but it looks awesome, and comes complete with the required mounting hardware. It is good to cover up to a 53 tooth ring.

Nice find, Mike! Can you post pictures of the supplied hardware?

I've never seen a commercially-available protector that would fit a 55-60 tooth ring, which means they're ruled out for many 'bents. The best protection is to always keep the big ring's teeth covered by the chain!

That's a great rationale for Putting It On The Big Ring And Keeping It There!

Yeah, of course the downside is when you hit something hard. When I was left-crossed by a pickup back in '07, I bent my chain - along with the rings and the spyder. But at least I didn't poke holes in the fender!
