White Industries ENO Single Speed Cranks and Bash Guard/Ring
First let me say that I have never seen one of these first hand. I was just browsing the White Industries website and happened upon this new product. I’m a big fan of White Industries and on my three most ridden bikes, all have at least one White Ind. component. Right away I saw the bike polo application with this bash guard/ring. I even Google imaged it and did a Flickr search to get a look at more photos. But no luck other than the two small ones on the site listing the product. Here is one of the two from the site.
This is a more expensive set up than say, something imported. But then again this is made in USA. A big plus in my book. And White Industries makes top quality stuff. At least everything I have ridden. According to their site’s suggested retail price lists the ENO Cranks and the Bash Guard/Ring are sold separate. The list for the cranks is $200 in your choice of 170mm, 175mm, or 180mm. And the Bash Guard/Ring comes in 30t, 32t or 34t for $68.
Some words from the product page.
