    Great Bashgaurd for a Great Price

    Solid aluminum. Much better than bashgaurds that have plastic or composite centers that shatter when hit very hard (and cost about 4x as much). Fits Shimano crank sets.

        For the price you can't get better than this. The bashguard installed perfectly. It's a little heavy, but to be sturdy it needs to be. I would recommend this to anyone looking to protect their rings for mountain biking.

        Comments about Nashbar Mountain Bike Bashguard:

        Bought this for use on a single speed set up. Overall a very attractive looking and good quality part. I did order the correct bolt circle for my bike (104mm), but ran into a problem with the chainring bolts on my bike. My bolt heads were too big for the small counter bores on the part. In my opinion they could be opened up some more without sacrificing anything. You could just get different bolts, but being a machinist I just opened them up myself. Not a huge deal, just throwing it out there!

          The Bike Nashbar Bashguard exceeded my expectations. It mounted perfectly in place of the large chain ring and was an easy install. It is great quality for the price and looks fantastic on my mountain bike. I would highly recommend to others.

          Sturdy, but fits too close to chainring

              Bashguard can take a pounding. Its a bit heavy. The biggest problem is its fitment. The bashguard fits too close to the middle chainring resulting in some chain rub when gears are in small cog of cassette. I had to put washers in between the bashguard and middle chainring to prevent the rub.

                I have used the 5 bolt version on a single speed for a few years and it is bomb proof . Just got rid of the stupid weak resin ring on my 29er and replaced with the 4 bolt version. You will pay much more for cheaper garbage with a different logo than this ring. BTW to the weight weinies ,get a life, go back to the road bike.

                Comments about Nashbar Mountain Bike Bashguard:

                The only reason I did not give this piece 5 stars is because of the weight...however this in an incredibly strong bashguard. First off the fit and finish is very good. No trimming or filling was needed. The part mounted up with no issues. After several rides while bombing a trail with lots of loose rock (just larger than fist size rocks) one came up and struck the guard, I was going about 20 mph. There was only a slight scratch on the outer edge, this would have certainly destroyed my previously exposed chainrings. It did it's job perfectly. I absolutely recommend this product.

                      Nice having the Bash guard push one over the offending stump as opposed to having an outer chain ring dig into that stump and the subsequent head over heals over the handlebars or some other outcome. [$] is really affordable. I looked all around and this is the best deal in terms of price. Sure there are other much cooler brands out there but they provide pretty much the same function...at two or three times the price.
