I haven't made a thread in forever but started riding again lol.

The federal impact sprocket with the pc guard. How would that work? It's only 40 bucks and seems to protect the chain. The main reason I'm asking is for crank/pedal slides (I do them on back foot drive side). I think the pc guard would slide better and not stick plus I'm cheap and it looks cool.

Tldr: would it help prevent breaking chains and slide nice for crank arm and pedal grinds

Oh also I don't grind any brick or concrete just coping on ledges and rails

You can't do crank arm slides with your back foot. I guess it might help with back foot pedal feebles though

Yeah that's what the back foot was reference to. Back foot pedal slides

I think the shadow guard is cheaper and has the same plastic guard.

Now that I think about it eclat makes one too, is this an extension of pc pedals then pc pegs and now pc sprocket guard? What's next? Plastic bearing cups?
I seriously think this could be the last useful plastic alternative on a BMX bike and hope it doesn't go further.

I don't think anything else could really be made plastic but it definitely slides better than aluminum. I hated riding pegs when I had metal. I think it's a good idea as grinding on it won't cause as much resistance as aluminum

The odyssey havok sprocket pocket was plastic, and one of the most popular bolt on guards of it's time (early 90's).
But I'm pretty sure the federal one is the cheapest on the market right now
