Trying to find a chain guide bash guard combo.
I currently have a Funn Bash, but the chain guide interfered with the lower suspension pivot point.
Anyone have a good combo set up that works?
I need one that doens't interfere with the lower pivot.
Thanks

assuming you're running 1x, do the "upper" guides work with your suspension?

I run a OneUp Bash Guide on my 165. More or less the same suspension

I have a 29" Process 153 (but on mullet mode with a 650b rear).

I use a Funn Zippa Lite top guide and a Funn Zippa Lite bash. It's been working very well so far, considering my RD's clutch is already shot. I ride really rocky trails in a tropical climate.

Can you take a really good picture and show me how you mounted yours.
I can not for the life of me figure how to do mine? The top screw mount sits deep and close to the bottom chain stay pivot point and no sure how the hell yo mount the top attachement screw.

I have seen my same bike with chain guuides and IM not sure what the hell I am doing wrong!?



In this top photo you can see the bash guard near the bottom of the image and the "TOP" mounting hole for the ISCG05 mount...

...am I using the wrong mount?

The top ISCG threaded hole is recessed ~11.5mm on the G2 Carbon Process 153 frames, (both 27.5 and 29 I believe).

I found some spacers and a longer bolt for the top hole.

I'm running a OneUp Bash Guide which comes with 2.5mm spacer washers to move the whole guide out, which I used(on top of the other spacers) because it was sitting too close to the lower pivot.

Gotcha. Yeah kind of squirly how they did that, but I think I will have to make a spacer and go that route. Thanks for the assist.
