    Like on the Dutch bikes with the metal 'strut' that holds it in place that mounts onto the bottom bracket fitting?

    I've done endless google searching, I've emailed a friend in Holland to see if he can help but does anyone have any ideas here?

    Oh, I tried velorution in London and they weren't in the least bit helpful. I've got a 40t chainring btw.

    Is it a requirement that when you move to Bristol you have to go all cosmopolitan?

    Nah, the missus needs something dead practical for her 2 mile commute in nice clothes - it's a retail related job so she has to look tidy and has nowhere to change other than a toilet. Plus she lived in Belgium for 2 years as a kid and wants a bike like she had then!

    The dutch friend came up good though - check this site out...

    Thankfully, he'll post stuff to me. I can get this, plus a spare one and a 38t crankset with integrated chainring (no arms to get in the way of the guard) for €45 + postage.
