2 x10 bashguard options
I take it that would need longer chain-ring bolts?Posted 4 years agoplyphonMember
Yeah, unless I’m wrong I think all plastic bashguards do. Not sure about metal ones.
I think these are the bolts i used:Posted 4 years ago
I just got an M980 XTR, 26-38. I put on a 40T RaceFace bash. Since the bash is larger, I had to raise the front derailleur, and I do get some chain rub. Chain also seems to rub on the bash when in the outboard most gear combos. You can hear it as the bash is Al. 38s seem to be made by no one!
I also considered the E13 Turbocharger, and think that it may not make noise in the higher gears since its plastic. I’m kind of regretting not trying it.Posted 4 years agoperthmtbMember
I got the Turbocharger, and it certainly looks the biz. However, the plastic is real thin round the chainring bolts, and after clunking the thing on a couple of logs/rocks the plastic has split at all four bolts. I replaced it with an aluminium Blackspire instead, and although it doesn’t look so gnarr, stands up to the punishment better. By the way, the Turbocharger comes with longer chainring bolts, at least mine did.Posted 4 years agosmatkins1Member
That e13 one won’t look so good when those little holes are full of mud.
I’ve given my blackspire one a good bashing and it’s proving to be unbelievably tough
Comes with the longer bolts you need too!Posted 4 years ago
