I agree, it's metal and protects your chainring. You will be in great shape with either one.

Theoretically to give you a bit of 'traction' for grinding up and over logs. But I have had that particular FSA bashguard and the "teeth" are not sharp enough to help. They are purely cosmetic.

i got the nashbar unit today and mounted it and it looks GREAT. the pictures dont do it justice. its very clean, simple, and looks built to take a lot of abuse.

unless i have some freak failure i dont see any reason to pay more than $15 for a nice bash guard.
