 Would be interesting to know what the effects on the frame are. I would rather have the bash brake than the ISCG on the frame.
  • 26 2
 My thoughts exactly. How about some breakaway bolts or just something softer so they bend and are then replaced?
  • 52 7
 Have we ever seen a frame brake on a chainring/bashguard/BB impact ?
  • 43 1
 @raph11: no but we have seen broken bash guards and since these won't break anymore the forces might be passed on to the frame
  • 27 2
 @raph11: Oh yes, I have seen frames with broken ISCGs.
  • 5 0
 Doesn't that come about via the ring being slotted for ISCG? The breakaway for those slots should be way lower than the ISCG mount itself.
  • 14 3
 This is why Shimano refuses to make an ISCG bashguard and uses bashrings instead. Even if a big impact fragged the chainring AND the bottom bracket (and that would have to be a hell of an impact), those parts are replaceable, and there's virtually no risk of damaging the BB shell. On the other hand, those three little tabs are quite a bit less burly, and completely non-replaceable. Still, as an ex-shop mechanic, I've never seen any broken tabs.
  • 15 2
 @raph11: Yes, and I have bent 224 mounts, IH Sunday mounts and Mk3 V10 mounts along with many bolts bent which are then a pain to get out.
The bash guard is normally best designed with a waffle in it to dissipate the load.
Anyone can cut a piece of good solid plastic and show that it doesn't break, the key to good design is to have good input requirements, system requirements, sub system requirements, trace matrix from requirements to design verification testing, good test methods, TMV, DVT, etc. etc.

 @raph11: I have seen broken and bent iscg tabs yes, I also just recently smashed my e.13 on a rock and it exploded, keeping everything intact other than itself. I hit so hard I expected to see some damage to the frame or chain ring quite honestly so although I was bummed about the loss of a chain guide It did a good job saving my bike.

 ICSG tabs are designed to take a beating. By the time you get to those kinds of loads the guide backplate will bend and can be replaced. This is typical in the testing we did on competitive product.

 I'd like to know too. This used to be a big problem as ISCG were originally designed foe guides only and the bash went on the crank. Today, most ISCGs are presumably designed to take these hits, but is it a good idea to trust them?
  • 3 1
 @raph11: ripped iscg tab out of my old carbon v10, both bolts all fine and usable, I'm still using the same chainguide over 2 years later. (bolts were changed out for stainless)

 @raph11: Lots of times, go to more DH races. On a related note I don't understand why the spider mount bash ring has fallen so out of favour. The weight penalty for an alloy one is minimal and they put hte impact through the cranks instead of the frame tabs. $150 crank arm or $2000 frame, I know which one I'd rather smash into the floor.

As we all now the impossible is usually normal when shit goes south but that plate definitely bends most of the time.

 The ISCG tabs on my Marin Attack Trail are removable. I think this is really the way to go for bike frames, but if you had welded on tabs you'd indeed be screwed, though I think modern ISCG tabs are pretty well designed for these impacts.

 @OneUpComponents:

Tell that to hardened iscg bolts that sheared and bent before my backplate or iscg gave and broke .

 @Fix-the-Spade: they are frowned upon because 1) spiders are going away. 2) they add weight to one of the worst spots to do so on any mechanically driven machine, your rotating mass. Same reasons that light weight wheels and tires are applauded, applies to the entire drive train.

 @Fix-the-Spade: spiders limit front ring size and new 1x drivetrains run smaller rings with their broader gear range. If you think rotating mass and efficiency is pseudo-engineering then you're a fool. Then again progress has always been resisted by the narrow minded. Enjoy your '90s hardtail.
  • 8 2
 @cthorpe: Dude, it's really not that hard to get a bashring rotating. Even for the heaviest bashring on the market, the force required to get my 250-odd pounds lumbering forwards would dwarf the amount required to get the ring spinning. Not only that, but cranksets on DH and enduro bikes spend most of their time either not rotating (while the rider is descending) or rotating at a pretty constant speed (when the rider is climbing or sprinting). Even if you're sprinting out of a corner, I don't think I could tell the difference in my acceleration between a crankset with a carbon ISCG bashguard and the same crankset with a steel bashring on it. Not only that, but that difference would have to be very big indeed before I considered it more important than being able to ram my bottom bracket area into solid objects as necessary without potentially turning my frame into a display piece. And yes, spiders are going away, and that means we can't mount bashrings any more, but that's a downside to spiderless cranksets, not bashrings.
  • 1 1
 @richierocket: they have that already; that's the chainring. Lol
  • 1 1
 @Jubbylinseed: spiders won't go away just like 26 hasn't gone away. There is a difference in mass and with a good drive train you might not "feel" it but there is a difference in accelerating a heavier weight. (Learnt that one in scoop back in the day).what tune difference would it make on a trail bike... who knows, I have tested many things but never had an interest in testing that. Have smashed 2 race face crank sets with a bash ring on, snapping the tabs clean off though, ending my ride. At least a bent iscg tab or fixing bolt you can bend it back or remove the cranks and chain guide and bend the chain guide back. With the mozartt chain guide (can't speak for the latest one but the WOG certainly) you have to worry about neither pretty much as they have designed out the issue mostly.

 @cthorpe: 80s hardtail mate, 80s (and an Enduro Bro bike, a couple of customs and a 79 Viscount). Also, a 104mm spider goes down to 30t, if you can't pedal that, do more squats. The spider on a crank is right at the centre of the lever next to the fulcrum (BB), of all the rotating mass on a bike it's the one least affected by an increase in weight. I will take the increased survivability for the 60 grams a 32t alloy bash guard weighs. You apparently will follow fashion and keep hurling the insults.

 Bolt 100kg (the rider) to the drop carriage to make the test represent the actual forces inflicted, then it would come up with more meaningful results. Lets at least make it vaguely represent real life.
  • 17 1
 weight of rider, weight of bike, velocity of rider... need a little more than 100kg to represent these forces
  • 18 0
 Shots fired! Wink #sassy
  • 20 4
 Whenever the bash doesn't get hit, it means that gravitational forces have been counteracted by the suspension. So when the bash does get hit, it's picking up the left over forces that the suspension couldn't overcome and not the entire weight of the rider/bike.
  • 5 1
 @canadianwoo84: we are not talking weight only, think of inertia of that mass. If the suspension did not stop it by that point it means that this weight has some serious downward velocity as well.
  • 3 0
 @canadianwoo84: It depends if you hit a tree that happens to be on your way at a 90° angle. Then your bash guard gets a serious beating. My opinion is I prefer to have a broken bash guard, then if it breaks a broken chainring, but I really want my frame to be intact after a crash.
  • 15 2
 There is no need to drop a 100kg weight. Instead increase the height to impact.

Weight doesn't matter as long as they keep the energy the same. That means they need to drop the bashguard from a height which gives the same energy as an measured impact from an 100kg rider.

Energy = mass* g*height
  • 4 0
 @Mimimi: sadly that is not true for KINETIC energy = Ek = ½mv^2 That is velocity SQUARED so it makes a huge difference here. That is why you hope that your suspension will slow you down enough before you hit it.

I am not even taking into consideration that you are almost always moving forward so there is another vector adding another batch of kinetic energy from the forward motion.. so poor rockring has to deal with forward speed induced impact as well as vertically induced one...
  • 13 0
 woah woah woah... you mean you HAVE NOT ridden through a watermelon field?
  • 2 2
 @bluumax: yeap agreed, but not fully, typical rider weighs 70kg, typical bike weight 13-20kg, , 100kg is more than a typical weight bike and rider together. the velocity isn't going to be much more than 20mph usually - thats probably almost covered in that drop test, the only thing missing is forward momentum. and @SuperstarComponents when you guys gonna get new bearing removal tools back in ... I keep having to borrow my mates for the sizes i'm needing. that tool of yours is amazing!!!!!!!!!! and just read @johny88 um... yeah thats what i meant just you said it better!!!

 Thats the first company I have seen come onto Pinkbike and negatively comment about another companies product or affairs - I suppose what do we expect from that guy Fruit over at Superstar though eh!

Maybe you are confused by the fact some companies test their products rather than just buy in from Taiwan / directly copy others?
  • 20 20
 @Racer951: Not being negative, just don't like non-scientific tests which look pretty and don't actually show what they are trying to show. Its like throwing a carbon wheel of the roof of the office onto concrete floor below to show they are real durable, but when you strap it to a bike/rider and do the same it will cave in as they mass is 100kg not 1kg of the wheel alone. Science not marketing please.

PS for your information 85% of what we sell currently is manufactured inhouse in our UK CNC machining facility. we have a few videos online of the robot loaded pedal manufacturing cell for example...
  • 39 4
 @SuperstarComponents: I think the video is meant as a bit of entertainment, there is also no mention of the weight of the system there though I imagine it isnt 100kg but then that is irrelevant as the test system, velocity etc have to be taken into account - I just dont think its is particularly 'classsy' of a company to attempt to criticise another publicly with no actual scientific information themselves other than some 100kg guesstimate etc - Maybe you should have a personal account if you want to comment in such a manner?

I have seen the videos of you manufacturing a few bits and bobs as I am involved in manufacturing so nerd out on that kind of stuff, and get the engineering magazines etc - impressive setup on that pedal machine but that doesnt change the fact that your parts are all taiwanese or direct copies of others.

Your 'nano' pedal is an almost direct copy of the 'Nano' as named originally by HT and sold by you for years, you even used (or still use?) their axle in your pedals and use their bearing and bush arrangement.

Aside from pedals, how are 85% of your products made by you?! - Hubs - No, Rims - No, Bars - No, Stems - No, Chain Device - No, Seatclamps - No, Seatposts - No, Garmin tat - No etc etc, just headsets, pedal bodies and chainrings all of which pretty easy to just copy directly from competitors (As can be seen in one of your videos of your desk filled with competitor parts) - Sounds more like 20% of parts....

Easy to criticise other companies R&D when yours is done by your competitors first...
  • 1 1
 @johny88: While agree that the shock does need to be considered. However there must be conservation of energy. All the energy at the beginning of the drop should equal all the energy at the end of the drop

Potential Energy = mgh
Kinetic Energy - 0.5mv^2

These two must be the same ... ignoring losses of course.

However, with impact / shock loading other factors must be taken into account.
  • 31 1
 @SuperstarComponents force is mass multiplied by acceleration F=ma (in this case deceleration). In the real world the deceleration the bash sees is significantly lower (crank flex, ankle, knee and arm bend, movement of the obstacle on trail). This means the mass can be significantly higher.

In our test the deceleration is very high (as close to instant as we could get) so the mass needed to achieve a very high force can be quite low.
  • 2 1
 @OneUpComponents: well an impact load this is not entirely true you must consider the time of impact (impulse time). Actually the shorter the time the larger the force. During impact one must consider the "stiffness" of each body colliding as well.

The mass still plays a large part but so does the time of impact.

 @Mimimi: mass*g is literally weight... you can either change the weight or the height to get a change of energy so weight does matter a lot. plus im sure thats easier than making the rig waaay bigger
  • 2 0
 @jordanneedsafork: Mass and height both matter ... though it is not just a conservation of energy, there is also conservation of momentum. Impact is not that easy - the stiffness of both bodies, mass, coefficient of restitution, time of impact, etc all play a role in this.

When two bodies collide - momentum is conserved, energy is not.

 @OneUpComponents: I did like the video by the way, made my day :o)

There was no indication of the height in the video so im only discussing an interesting point rather than digging at your guys. Thought there would be ways of improving it and getting more useful info out of it.

There is a limit to scaling of things in that way, you could drop a Hotwheels car from 500m up to simulate a car being dropped from a metre, the end result would be vastly different!

Im more than happy there are plenty of interesting people making more products for riders to choose from, i definitely don't want a single world dominating supplier. Customers choose who you like, plenty of choice out there.

 @Racer951: As said we have no beef with oneUP, just trying to improve what is a great idea. Ive done alot of work on rim testing so yes i know what im talking about with these testing machines.

Just because we list a huge range it doesn't mean that's what we sell. We concentrate on promoting what we do best inhouse, and the rest of the product slowly sells through as we clear the old Taiwan made parts. We dont hide where each thing is made so its very clear to the customer.

The majority of our sales are wheels, pedals, chain rings, headsets etc, most of the other holes in the range are in development now, and will be brought in-house. Hubs are the next big product to be finally brought inhouse, but we cant rush them as they need to be right. So as i say 85% of our sales are made in the UK in house we are aiming for 95%+ to bring us in line with other UK made companies.

Im sure everyone in the industry benchmarks the competition, so yes we have samples of other peoples product so we can develop a better part of our own from scratch. The pedals are our own custom extrusion, custom forged axles, CNC endcaps etc, so yes it looks like a pedal but thats because its a pedal. 2 new completely different pedals are in production now that the volume selling Nano is out there in the tens of thousands.

Obviously we get parts like rims, spokes and bearings in from specialist suppliers but so does every brand out there such as Hope which im sure people would be considered to be British made.

Whats your beef with Superstar that you need to make claims about what we do?
  • 20 1
 @SuperstarComponents: I still cant understand how you think 85% of all of the parts you sell are made in the UK - have you not been on your own website? Are the hubs, stems, seatclamps, bars, seatposts and the other parts UK made or is this a future plan? A single pedal, some headsets and rings add up to a small amount of your range unless I am missing something huge?!

I have seen the Nano pedal you sell, you even advertised it initially as using 'proven nano internals' - directy taken from the HT pedal that you even stole the name from. Are you disputing your pedal uses different internals to the HT? I bet those new pedals you will have ready soon will look mighty like the Raceface too? No?

Superstar, or more specifically its director Neil have a history of being underhanded, commenting on competitors products often under false names, going to small claims court over minor customer disputes and providing quite hilarious levels of customer service. The comment here was another example of that and you should be called out on it.

I would get on with the running of your business and leave PR to people that have some common sense.

 I'd like to fit my one-up bash guard, its just a shame that the crappy e-13 TRS+ cranks have seized onto my Capra (a common problem apparently) and YT want me to send the bike back :-(

 They should drop test it at varied angles.I never ride in a straight line haha. I've broken load of iscg guides and mounts (never had this one)I switched to saint bash guards and never had an issue since. Maybe some mud clogging up between the ring and base plate but that's it.
Love one up stuff tho.

 Cool test. That said, a friend bought the direct mount version of this guide, and it was an extraordinarily badly made piece of cra that lasted one ride. Entire thing was plastic.

 I have the guide already, would like to have the option to just add the bash instead of forking out 79 bucks for the whole unit again Frown

 Sorry @jimmyc123. We looked at that option but couldn't get the strength we wanted out of a 2pc system.

 Would love one, but no iscg standard? Is my 2014 bike that far out of date?
