BBG Bashguard 104 32T BCD Drilled Chain Accessories

4.89/5 (36 Reviews)
MSRP : $12.00


Product Description

Made in Portland, Oregon USA. This is a light weight but strong bashguard that is designed to replace the big ring on your mountain or cyclocross cranks or you can cover the big ring. All bashguards are made from the same 5000 series 1/8 inch thick aluminum (except the superlights which are 1/16 inch thick) and are all anodized and laser etched for durability. It works great for single speeds, cross country and all mountain riding. They can also be used for freeriding and downhilling. The 104 32T weighs just 58 grams which is alot lighter than the 5 ounce freeride type. This product has been tested over boulders and rocks for over four years now and we have not been able to bend or break one yet.

Strengths:    Perfect protection, low cost, clean look

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I just bought my second bbg bashguard for my second bike since the first one held up so well. Before buying one of these I was hitting my largest chainring hard enough to bend it 60 degrees. The same hits with the bbg bashguard installed and I was taking no damage. And it costs just $12!!!

Strengths:    Light and covers the ring and chain.
Great communication and help from BBG & had it installed 5 days after ordering


Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Removed the 44 tooth ring from an older XT 3x crank and the 32 bash guard looks great over the 22/32
Had to get some #8 metric washers to make up the difference in thickness and now the rider can live without fear of gashing a leg or getting the Cat 5 grease mark.... Once the snow melts and the mud dries.

Strengths:    Light, Inexpensive, Great Selection, Fast Shipping

Weaknesses:    Thickness

Bottom Line:   
Great Value! Can't find a better deal on a quality bashguard. BBG carries just about every bolt diameter & tooth configuration. Super fast shipping. Looks great. My only concern is the thickness and long term durability. The guard is fairly thin....approx. 1/8". I'll have to put it through the paces to see how it holds up against big hits.

Strengths:    Cheap! Fits well. Easy install. Looks good.

Weaknesses:    The Superlight is thin. Time will tell as to durability.

Bottom Line:   
Bought 36t 104 bcd superlight along with the 104 bcd spacer. Fit like a glove on my 2x Samox crank (Specialized Fatboy). Had to get longer crank bolts though.
The Superlight is super light. Time will tell how well it holds up.
Shipped out quickly.
Would definitely purchase again.

Bottom Line:   
I'm normally not the type to leave reviews, but this is the type of brand and product that's worth promoting. It's a great product at a great price and gives a unique look to the bike. It's not the typical "big box" bash guard. I highly recommend!

Strengths:    Inexpensive. Strong. Color livens up the bike. I added a blue one to one bike and a red to another...

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
Great product. Had some major bounces on my cross bike, no issues with this setup. Strong, and light... Used on one cross and then decided to add to the second since it worked so well. This is much better than the 2x10 setup I had previously. Especially for cx racing, no worries about changing the front deraileur whilst huffing and gasping for air.

Bottom Line:   
Run a 34 tooth/104mm b.c. bashguard for 5 years. I've smashed it into many rocks with my 200 lbs. and it is still in good condition. I just file down the sharp burrs and it is good to go. Bought my 2nd just a few days ago for another ride.

Strengths:    No frills design, lightweight, outstanding customer service.

Weaknesses:    Finish--there were a few rough edges.

Bottom Line:   
I ordered this for a kid's bike, and it fit perfectly right out of the box. I initially ordered the wrong bolt pattern, but BBG was very accommodating and exchanged it for a nominal shipping fee. These bashguards are a great deal.

Strengths:    Looks great. Fit great (as long as you order the right size). The machining looks very good with no burrs or rough edges.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I just installed the 104 BCD 32T oval holed bash guard on my Breezer Supercell 1x10 conversion. I ended up having to swap cranks since the OE cranks weren't 104 BCD like I thought, there were no issues with the bash guard install. The holes lined up perfectly, and the ring fit very tight around the crank. I'm sure it will hold up fine.

Strengths:    Strong, Light, Inexpensive. Easy to Install and great customer service (see below). Does exaclty what it's suppose to do!

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Had this bash on for several years and literally smashed it on everything (i'm not a graceful rider). Finally bent inward a bit and was rubbing on the chain. Emailed BBG and he shipped a new one out next day, no questions asked. BBG stated they have a lifetime warranty! If you don't need a fancy chain guide/bashguard this is definitely the way to go. Highly recommended and for less than $20 shipped you can't go wrong. Thanks BBG.
