toothless chain ring?

Does any one know if there is a toothless chain ring, sort of like the mountain bike bash guards that fits a standard shimano (rx100) road crank.

I could always break ot the the jigsaw and sandpapter, but would prefer to avoid that

thanks,

SD

Wonder if one of the singlespeed or cyclocross ones would fit?

I think that sort of thing is light enough that it would be more correctly called a pants guard. By the time you want an actual bash ring it's because you're landing the ring on logs or rocks. And a light ring such as a chainring with no teeth would bend far too easily. Not sure where to get high grade pants guards since they typically come on cheaper cranksets. But if you can find one I suspect it can be adapted to your situation.

Cyclocross guards are what you want. A local (to me) makes them in carbon fiber:

These are cheaper, but aluminum:

Also available in 130mm BCD from SJS Cycles in England IIRC. The problem in some cases is finding one large enough to handle a large diameter chainring.
