Remember, our crankset will have slightly different bolts, but I guarantee any shop that services bikes will have what you need for under 4$. It will take 3 minutes with the longer bolts the bashguard comes with (I'm talking the bigring protector).

the big ring protector is cool.. didn't know they made a bash guard that left the ring on. almost 50 bucks is kinda steep though.

Yep, I didn't need to buy anything else and just put it on like it was the big ring using the longer screws.

Yeah, but sometimes the 3rd thing gets in the way anyways, and i never use it. This is a fun thing to try to do anyways.

Alright here is another bump.

I know i can get the third ring off now, meaning I will be ordering the parts soon. Im getting new pedals and a pedal wrench, along with the bash guard.
Will this pedal wrench work with DMR V8 pedals?
http://www.pricepoint.com/detail.htm...d=325%20SETPW5
Im guessing the pedals are a standard 9/16 size. Im just not sure if this pedal wrench that apparently has 15 and 16 and 15 and 17 millimeter ends will work with the pedals. So any help here?

Thanks alot for helping guys! I know i ask alot of questions, but i hate it when i buy somthing and it doesnt work.

I think I payed around 45$ shipped, and the thing is super beastly (and this is coming from a super cheapo).

I needed to keep my big ring because, while I have a road bike, I tend to just ride my mountain bike just in case I see something cool to huck off of.
