full chainguard for 53 tooth chainring

I am looking for something like the hebie chainglider: http://www.hebie.de/Chainglider-350-...er.0.html?&L=1
but they only make that up to a 44 chainring size. does anybody know of a similar product that can be adjusted or made to fit the 53 chainring on my Tikit?
sure would help keep my pants clean, and my chain!

I was able to fit a chain guard on my Dahon Yeah. It has a 52 ring up front, but it may work for you. Here's the write-up on my blog:

Thanks ShinyBiker. Because of the way the Tikit folds, I really need a chainguard/case that goes completely around the chainring at least, and even better if it covers the entire chain like the chainglider. i really only get chain grease on me when the bike is folded and i am rolling it around, especially in crowded places. i am quite acustomed to strapping my pants leg with a little velcro strap so that is not the issue. Taking the bike into public spaces is.

wow feijai, that looks like a very interesting product indeed. still not a full chaincase... I wonder if it would fit on a Tikit, there is not much space between the chainring and the frame, and the "dinosaur" lives there...

Did you look into different types of oil for the chain? There should be some dry lubes out there..
