chainguard != rockring. I don't want my pants caught in the chain...I'm not trying to protect the chainring itself.

My pants don't get caught on the chain with a bashguard in place. It works. Look at shimano's top commuting gruppo crank, it's basically a bashguard.

Like I said before, I just grinded the teeth off the large chain ring on my old ultegra crank. It was free. Anyway, go for the chainguard. I hope it works out for you without too much trouble. Here's a picture for posterity:

How much are you looking to get for them?

I always loved that scheme on the Zebdi. It still upsets me Planet X got out of mountain bikes and is just doing road bikes now. I'm still not sure how that happened.

it's a good recommendation, just not relevant to the bike I'm buying (single speed).

I have a singlespeed sette hardtail I use around town/campus. It has a RaceFace bashring, and it works great for keeping my jeans away from the chain.

wonderful. I have no spare chainring to grind down and as long as I'm buying a part, why not get the chainguard?

Because you've obviously never setup a chainguard.

it just seems like a bashring will be a cleaner solution. the full on chainguard seems bulky and kinda ugly, IMO

whatever your preference is, though, go for it. it's your bike afterall

Yup, a bash ring would be a better solution here. The chainguard isn't the easiest thing to set up properly, will bend fairly easily, and I've actually gotten my pant's cuff pulled up into the chainguard and chain by the chainring's teeth, since the a good portion of the ring isn't covered.

You should still check with your doctor before trying Nuun. Drinking Nuun helps my post ride leg cramps.

makes sense. I'll see what I can find. It's just that the exposed chain still can stain with grease...it'd be nicer to have it covered up. Then again, I probably won't be riding in work clothes this summer....I'll just shower and change at the office.

Try a different chain lube, I like white lightning. Completely degrease the chain and try wax or a dry teflon lube. Wax is the best for cleanness and worst for upkeep. You probably have to reapply it every 100-200 miles and build up can be an issue sometimes.

I had some Ice Wax with PTFE. I'll have to see if it's still in the garage.

That stuff should be perfect. Just be sure to thoroughly degrease the chain before you put any on.

Got my Swobo Dixon today. Purchased with a small dent in the tube for a sweet discount.
Hope I don't die!




I use Dupont White teflon spray on my Motorcycle and my Bicycle. It drys to a whitish film, does not attract debris and does not fling.


YOU CAN GET IT IN ENGLISH TOO!

it seems like he bought a lot of parts for it to convert it for road use. why not swap the aggressor for a road bike frame? he's pedaling a lot of dead weight around
