    Excellent work! Looks good with the black crankset in your Commencal.

    Thanks a lot for your help. Without it I could not have finised mine:

    Ah ok. I didn´t realize that the bolts are totally hollow. Thanks again

    I've glued nyloc nuts to the visible side, the screw ends are visible from the picture. I didn't make any threads, I just put the screw through the chainring bolt and connected it to the bash. There's some more pictures of the process at the Finnish cycling forum.

    Incredible! So you did a thread in the hollow of the bolt or only fixing it? I think only fixing cause I cannot see the head of the bolts from this side. Does it ever fall down when you beat it?
    I have the same chainring and it´s a madness to find a bashguard (even the bolts for it). I am trying to do one in acrylic. Thank you for your quite answer and congratulations for the job

    Thanks, I used 6mm oval head PZ2 screws, which had to be honed so that the chain can move correctly. Just use any screw that fits tightly inside the hollow chainring bolt, the head is more difficult and it needs to have very deep grooves so that there's something for a screwdriver to hold on.
