BB mounted bash guard

Ok, my GF's Trek Roscoe doesn't have normal mounting bosses for MRP style bash guards. Black spire does make a BB mounted one but i'm not sure if it will work with press fit BB's or just threaded. I have sent them a message on FB with no reply and will send an email shortly but seeing if there are any others that would work with Roscoe's pressfit BB

Those only work with threaded BB's if you install an adaptor. I'm no expert but I've never seen a bashguard made for a pressfit BB as there is nothing to hold it on. Your only option is to mount a chainring type bashguard.

I have the same problem with my Kona. I've ordered one of these PF ISCG ADAPTOR ? FIFTY-FIFTY from aliexpress should be here by the end of October.

Can you mount a chainring bash guard?

1x11 drivetrain.. so its not worth it to try to make that crap work somehow. i'm sure it will be fine. Blackspire agreed that it was threaded only. appreciate they got back to me within a day.
