    MRP XCG bash guard or bash ring for SOLO?

    I'm getting a SOLO that will use a single-ring setup. I ride rocky terrain and like having a bash ring on my bikes. However, I've never owned a bike with ISCG tabs before, and I'm wondering if a bash guard like the MRP XCG might be a better choice. Would it provide better protection of the downtube and lower linkage compared to a bash ring?

    If you're running a clutch derailleur, I'd recommend the MRP AMG. That's what I have on my TBLTC. I'm not sure it provides better protection than a bash guard, but you need some devise or XX1 type chain ring to retain the chain. Either way, I don't think its enough protection for the downtube and linkage. For additional protection, I've got the Cytoe protector.

    It will be XX1.
