    Looks like a good deal. Let us know how it works out!

    I give up. Went to the LBS last night and asked them to show me whatever they have.
    They're installing one of these guards, I forget which:

    http://www.pricepoint.com/Brand/MRP/...-Bashguard.axd
    or
    http://www.pricepoint.com/Brand/MRP/...SCG-05-36T.axd

    1st one might be the same thing Puck It bought.
    I'll post pics when I get the bike back.

    I think you'll be happy with either.

    I started considering one again, since the BB on my new bike is a little lower. My problem remains the same though, I can't find anything specifically for the 30T ring. I don't really want to give up any more ground clearance than I need to.

    Got the bashguard installed last week. It's this one:

    Here're a couple pics of it installed. It served the purpose very well today. I'm happy!

    I went to mount mine. No hardware was in the box. For $20, what do you expect. I need to dig up some SS hardware now. I also need the Shimano crank tool, it will be here Wednesday. I also may cut off the chain guide as I don't think I will need it.

    bump. I broke my bashguard. Well, not not the bashguard itself but one of the mounting bolts. The head of the lower front mounting bolt is gone but the shaft is still inside the threadhole in the frame. And the slot in the main plate of the bashguard is mis-aligned from the remnant of the headless bolt by ~1/16 inch. I must have hit something *really* hard causing the bashguard plate to shear off the bolt head and shift the plate a bit.

    I'm glad the bolt sheared instead of sending even more impact to the frame. But holy shit, this is exactly why I wanted a crank mounted bash ring in the first place!

    Bike's at the shop now; they tell me this is rare but not the first time they've seen it happen. Maybe I'll get a new bike if they booger up the frame trying to extract the bolt.

    Wow, that's crazy! I wouldn't have expected that to happen.
