    Frame mounted bash guard for XX1 Chainring

    Will be mounting an SRAM XX1 Groupset to my nomad soon and am keen for some chainring protection. Reports on the XX1 chainring alternating tooth thickness system appear to work, meaning that chain stays where it should. Thus I thought about not using a crank mounted bash ring or any type of addtional chain retention system. Any ideas on a frame mounted (BB or ISCG) bash or skid guard that would protect the smaller 32 tooth XX1 chainring? My only find to date is the MRP XCG which only goes down to 36T? Cheers Anthony

    Are there any crank mounted bash guards for the XX1 cranks?

    And, unfortunately, I'm pretty sure that the MRP XCG Single guide pictured above is not available in ISCG05 pattern.

    Shame that the MRP XCG isn't offered in ISCG05 - this would have been perfect. Just saw that MRP are doing an "all mountain guard" for 2013...the AMG:
    2013 MRP Debuts New Chainguides G3 , 1x, AMG, MICR - Sick Lines mountain bike reviews, news, videos | Your comprehensive downhill and freeride mountain bike resource
    Ok it has a chainguard which is "supposedly" not really necessary for XX1, but I suppose any additional chain security has to be a good thing. It has ISCG05 and you could always cut off or dremel away the chainguard if you wanted to save some weight.

    Does the chain ring need protecting when it has a chain wrapped around it?

    Sometimes. You nail something hard enough, you can mess up the chain, and/or bend or break your ring.

    YMMV - depends on where and how one rides, obviously.

    I'm thinking to just cut the rear portion of the taco on my MRP Micro guide off to use it without the pulley, and order up a new taco to run if I want it with the pulley again later. Cheaper than buying a whole new guide.
