MRP's XCG guard is designed to protect your chain rings from damage - especially important considering the replacement price of some of the current 2x10 rings. Watch MRP's own Noah Sears guide you through the installation.Some pointers before you begin...
• The XCG guard is just that, a guard designed to protect your chain rings and crank arms - especially important considering the replacement price of some of the current 2x10 chain rings. Check out MRP's other options if you're looking for a guide to keep your chain in place.
• MRP's XCG guard is available in three versions depending on whether you are looking to protect a big 44 tooth ring, or the smaller 40 and 36 tooth rings used on some double chain ring setups. There are also models to fit ISCG or ISCG-O5 chain guide tabs, as well as a bottom bracket mount version.
• When mounting to ISCG tabs, always use the longest mounting bolts possible. More thread engagement means more strength.
• A touch of blue Loc-Tite on the guard mounting bolts will keep them from rattling loose down the road.
• Use the supplied spacers to move the XCG guard close enough to the ring that it will provide protection, but not so close that the crank's chain ring bolts touch the XCG's back plate.What you'll need:
: 4mm and 8mm hex wrenches
, some installs will also require a crank extractor
or bottom bracket cup tool
as well.MRP XCG Installation:
