Can a bash ring be run with these?

You could, but there are challenges. The first is the bolt pattern. It's odd. I think Blackspire and a few others make rings, but they are expensive. The second is chainline. Adding a bash to a 2 ring crank requires you to shim the bash out and use really long bolts.


¡Mira, una ardilla!
Wel, if the Yeti guys can do it why won't you?

These are regular 104mm BCD cranks. They just have a captive, proprietary nut on the chainring bolts. Just take those away, and replace for longer ones to clamp the bashguard in.

EDIT: Found a bigger picture of the Yeti, and seems like they are running the Triples with the bashguard placed as the third ring.

Anyway, here is the thread on Singletrack I took the info from.
