Cool, I would guess it is a cut of ISP section and a parlee clamp.

If it were me, I'd pick up an XX1 crank (and a type II derailleur if you aren't already using one) and ditch the chainguide. Would save your 46g and look a lot cleaner. The XX1 ring will work fine with a 10sp chain since the inner dimensions of the 11sp XX1 chain are the same as 10 sp.

That was an option, but I found in some forums people experiencing dropped chain even with XX1.

It's funny! Worry about heavy bolt in chainguide, but use shitmano 520 pedals. No offence, just noticed.
