    Can you have a bashguard like those and still keep all 3 chainrings? I didn't think you could, but it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong.

    I'm pretty sure you must remove the big ring with a BBG bash guard, I can let you know for sure in a few days when I get mine. I ordered it on Tuesday.

    From BBG's home page:

    "Hello welcome to BBG bashguards. This is a light weight but strong bashguard that is designed to replace the big ring on your mountain or cyclocross cranks."

    However, there appears to be pretty generous relieving around the crank arm area on all of them; so it may be possible to do an outboard mount anyway.

    Also: Blackspire still makes big ring protectors that let you keep three rings; plus you can still find Girvin Rock Rings and Tooth Fairy Engagement Rings online occasionally.
