Need dog fang alternative for Spec. Roubaix

Help please! I'm the new owner of a Specialized Roubaix Comp. I'd really to get some frame protection in place above the bottom bracket. Previous posts here illustrated Valverdes bike with a modified deda dog fang in place. I hacked up a dog fang similarely but theres no way I can get it to fit. Any roubaix owners come up with an alternative solution?

Secondly, the seattube bottle cage screws have the derailleur hanger right between them Should I just spacer out from the frame to use it? Ideas for spacers?

You might try a Third Eye Chain Watcher. It's an unobtrusive black plastic thingie that keeps the chain from overshifting the small chainring.

I've never done it but to spacer out your water bottle cage you might take apart a chain link and try the little rollers. They look like they might be just the right size.
