Anyone think it's possible? A guard for sprockets that can go on separately?? Or is it a bit unnecessary?

Imagine a chromoly guard that replaces the spacer.. probably only possible for spline/socket(spindle drive) setups and only guards the inside of the sprocket. I wanna see one, I'd run it despite weight.

Wow I've missed that. Yes like that.. but full guarded rather. Why don't they try shit like this more often?

Quick poopy shop, but I really don't see how it wouldn't work, so good point.. Why don't Shadow make a full guard one ? There would be adequate space in between the guards for crank arms to go so idk.

Because how are you going to hit the top of the sprocket? This is a minimal design. I imagine that it's also a weight reason too. Btw..... anybody got a stolen sumo guard?

That's the only argument I could come up with that would be a reason why it isn't made, but it also extends the life of the guard if you think about it since you can just flip it around when one side starts getting beat the fuck up.

Weight addition would be minimal, but I guess 2-3oz TOPS is a bit too much for some people nowadays.

Lol at when one chain gets loose and one gets tight and it fucks everything up.

But really, if you break one chain you can keep going.

I think it'd be neat if you could like have a thing that could flip the drive on a mountain bike so you can pedal backwards and go backwards. Like a gear shift idea but the furthest one down makes you go backwards. haha
