How nessasary is the bashguard? does it retain the chain from falling off?

Sram S300 130 BCD cyclocross crank, 44t chainring, two Salsa Crossingguard bash guards, 12-27 Shimano Ultegra 10 speed cassette and an Ultegra short cage rear derailluer.
This is installed on my Soma Double Cross, this is used for paved road travel. I can climb any hill within 100 miles of home and can I spin the cranks up to 32 mph.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
I have a 40 dollar crank set (fsa vero), and to buy the bashguard/new chain ring would cost as much as a new truvativ isoflow single crank. So thats probally the better bet?
Ultregra crank with 39t inner ring and an old outer ring ground down as an outer jump stop, with an N gear inner jump stop:
I'm using a Cane Creek lever for the front brake, because it matches the STI rear shifter better (size wise). Which gives me a V brake in the front, since the CC lever is a long pull lever. Works fine, looks odd.
42T ring with a 12-27 in the back. Salsa guard outside and N-stop on the inside.
