I've hit ISCG bashguards hard enough to reach failure, but it has always been on the mounting plate itself, never the frame tabs. Then again, I tend to gravitate towards heavier, sturdier, more purpose-built frames. Are frame makers going the 'mostly decorative' route with their ISCG tabs?
I appreciate the review. I've been looking at this Wolf Tooth option for my hardtail, which has no other means by which to attach a bash guard.
