TartyBikes RD Bashring

New to Tarty Bikes, our own range of 'RD' (Read Design) components!

Want to find out more about how these products were designed and tested? Adam Read talks us through his design process here.

  • Affordable, useful, and durable. The RD range of products!
  • Designed by Tarty Bikes founder Adam Read, and tested by us.
  • Made right here in the UK!
The RD (Read Design) range of parts was born from a desire to bring popular, and useful products back to the sport of trials. Designed to be economical, durable and easy to fit, all the RD parts are great problem solvers that look stylish, don't break the bank, and are made in the UK too! Created by Tarty Bikes founder, Adam Read, each RD part has been designed for a wide range of compatibility, with decades of trials knowledge applied to the design of each component. Parts intended for high stress use have been FEA stress tested, and physically tested by us on our own bikes, to ensure they offer performance and durability.

- Stainless steel bash ring, designed by Tarty Bikes founder, Adam Read!
- A strong, and industrial looking bash ring with design cues from the Deng era of trials to fit a wide range of screw on cranks.
- Laser cut from durable SAE 304 stainless steel, right here in Bamber Bridge, UK!
- 304 stainless steel has a higher density compared to mild steel and aluminium of equivalent thickness, this means it resists deforming under load, increasing the life span of the part. This 4mm thick bash ring has a similar strength and stiffness to a 12mm thick alloy bash ring of the same design!
- Stainless steel construction is easy to tidy up with a file and sandpaper! If you make a mess of your bash ring, you can bring it virtually back to new again.
- All RD products are collected direct from the manufacturer by Ben on his trusty single speed bicycle! Better for the environment, and Ben's fitness.
- Raw stainless steel material, and discolouration from the laser cut process gives a cool, industrial looking finish!
- Brushed finish looks great with modern, matt and shot peened finish cranks.
- An 88m outer diameter works great with 18 tooth freewheels and any type of chain.
- 'Ridged' outer edge helps give better grip on obstacles, and 16 cut-outs help to save weight.
- 34.8mm mounting hole diameter to work with most screw on cranks.
- Please note This bash ring does not have a 'lip' where it will contact the freewheel. This isn't necessary for all freewheels, as some will already have a lip as part of their design. If the face of your freewheel is completely flat, you will need to purchase an additional freewheel spacer to prevent it from binding on the bash ring. These can be purchased here.
- Available in silver only.
- Sold singly.
- Bash ring is pictured with a Trialtech crank as an example of how it looks fitted. This crank and freewheel is NOT included with the bash ring!
- Weight: 102g

Additional Information

Please note: All RD parts feature surface imperfections, and discolouration on the edges of one side of the part. This is a by-product of the laser cut process, and in no way affects fit or function. Each part is QC checked by us to make sure tolerances are correct for its designed function. The small well on RD parts, visible as a small 'U' shaped cut in one of the edges of the part, is the start / stop point of the laser. We purposely designed this feature on all RD parts to ensure a clean start and finish during the laser cutting process. Tarty Bikes logos are laser etched in, and will vary in definition and finish depending on the part.
