So as I am fairly handy with CAD, my plan B is to 3D-print something similar in style to the attached which I have taken from the BHPC chain guard gallery. My question is this - would this acceptably safe if printed in thick PLA plastic?







What is a racing crank??? They just didn't want to fit it. 

I've got one of those chain guards and they fit fine and come with all the bits and everything seems high quality. Takes about 10 mins to fit. No reason for it to interfere with the derailleur if it's the right size. Maybe I should add the size is stamped on the chain guard and should correspond to the size stamped on your biggest chain ring.
