 how long would that ring last on rock gardens???

 If every second counts and someone can replace tham after each race, you can count me in Wink

 if every second counts, you dont want a DNF due to things braking...

 the ring will probably last a whole lot longer than those crank arms if he smashes a rock.

 i thought gravity products were pretty strong?

 If a rock 'smashes' into a ring without a bash hard enough any ring will taco.

 It'd probabaly snap if you pedal too hard, let alone ground out on a rock... Then again Mag, not everyone has as many rocks in their local tracks as you...

 yer carboons not exactly weak, looks tough enough for me. that said; I dont actually do downhill

 the gravity light cranks will bend if you look at them the wrong way, very flat profile means they bend very easily, but they are light, and every gram counts to some people

 I dont know if there gravity light cranks, I'm pretty sure they run Gravity decender cranks on demos or are they the same thing??
  • 2 1
 they're definitely gravity lights, never heard of the gravity decender before. the new demo full builds come with truvativ descendant cranks if thats what you're on about

 Adam thats a lie because until yesterday you didnt do jumps, and you've had saints for almost a year now
  • 1 0
 no it was the table on the 4x charlie it was literallky just after i got the bike hence why i bought saints
  • 2 1
 haha fair enough. That bike would look better with saints, or maybe some of the purple RaceFace's
  • 2 2
 Purple? This bike is black and green mate, where does purple fit into that? haha

 I know it sounds a tad odd, but I just have sneaking suspicion that it would look sick. also someone I know had one of these and put some purple pedals on it and it looked pretty nice. I think I may have only said purple tho because being a dirt jumper I enjoy bright/clashing colours.

 I'm all one for clashy colours, but this bike is tooooo nice for it! But fair enough mate, every man to his own

 I definitely would not run that chainguide on a DH rig. Eek
  • 2 4
 you definitely would, those are extra strong Wink wyglada pieknie, co tu duzo mowic Wink

 No way. One stray rock and BOOM!. I'll stick to something with a bash guard for DH thank you.

 I think people grossly underestimate the strength of carbon fiber.
  • 2 2
 I'm not one of those people. I am a mechanic in a store that deals almost exclusively in high end carbon road bikes. I have seen frames crack from lesser impacts than a rock at high speed. Put the whole weight and velocity of a DH bike against an immovable rock at high speed with a lightweight carbon plate in between and see what happens.
  • 2 2
 Or put any plate w/out a bash in between and see at happens.
  • 1 2
 Exactly.
  • 2 2
 No, not really. Nice try though. An aluminum bash guard would have a much higher chance of withstanding the impact and enable the rider to keep going. A carbon guide would simply be crushed.

 Explain please.

 Trekbiker2 is saying that anytime you don't have a bash guard and you smack your chain ring hard enough, regardless of the brand of ring, it will become damaged. Nobody mentioned material, but if you want to go there, carbon is technically tougher than aluminum. The only problem is that when CF is damaged, it frays. The thing that doesn't really make sense about what you said is that nobody has mentioned a CF bash guard. When it really comes down to it, the only way to tell how well it would do is testing it out as opposed to arguing on the internet.

 If you read my original comment, you'll notice that I said "I'll stick to something with a bash guard for DH." I was implying that I'd rather have something along the lines of the E.13 LG-1 or LG-1+ than a full carbon fiber guide with no bash guard. I'd trust an aluminum guide with a polyurethane bash guard over this guide vs a rock at high speed any day.

 See, now your point makes sense. You're a defensive little guy, aren't you?

 Maybe if you learned to read first then I wouldn't have to spell everything out for you, kid.
