Not sure if you guys check the mech forum much -
I ride a mtb (geared) with one front chainring, so I have increased wear compared to doubles, triples.
You may already do this, or it might be something to consider...

done it plenty of times, especially with unramped rings. works just fine.
The other thing you can do is run bigger chainrings, Ive got a 52T that has around 45,000 miles on it, a 42 wont last quite as long. Same goes for rear cogs, so many people microdrive the rear, its silly. I wont run anything smaller than a 16 on the rear if I can help it.
