With the 1x drivetrains does anyone use bashguards? I'm not talking about the old style one, but this style - https://can.oneupcomponents.com/collections/chainguides/products/bashguide-v2-iscg05 I put a small gouge in my down tube by my bottom bracket rolling over a boulder once. Didn't seem like there was any damage to the chain or chainring, but shortly after a bearing in my BB wasn't working very well(coincidence?) and had to be replaced. So once in 2 years is very minimal. I just recently got a bike with a longer wheelbase, 50mm longer than my previous bike.
Wondering whether it worthwhile getting one?
