Our special Taco Bashguard is designed to protect your chainring from obstacles like logs or rocks. It is hidden behind the crank and mounted to ISCG05 tabs that are located around your bottom bracket. It offers great protection for all kind of chainrings, especially direct mount (spiderless) ones where you can't mount regular 4 bolt bashring.
Taco bashguard can be mounted without the need of crank removal thanks to its open construction. Place Taco behind the crank arm. Try to establish how far the plastic plate is away from the chainring. If it is more than 5-6mm then use provided spacers to bring taco closer to the chainring. Ideally taco should be positioned as close as possible to the chainring itself, but do not use all the spacers to do so. Use no more than 4mm of spacers under each bolt. Once you have established the distance, mount the bolts loosely and position taco in middle of the bolt slots as a starting point or change it to your needs. Tighten bolts with 5-6Nm force.
