Good concept, but I don't think it will hold much.

The amount of pressure on a grind going onto that small peice of metal.


If anything, you'd have to make something so the lowers can support it, instead of the brake mount and...whatever.


Edit: Is it wrapped around the bottom of the fork?

Yep, it's mainly so I don't grind away the dropout if I miss a feeble.

A good thing for grind guards on a fork would be use something that can incorporate the bolt at the bottom of the dampng rods on the air side for example.

In theory though, I've never tried it out.

I knew of this for a while. Now with the movement of pegs used on a street mtb becoming more popular .Maybe some one could fabricate and design this.
It is a front bash guard used in motor cross to protect the fork drop outs. Pitured is the disc side and non disc side
Installed on fork
