I would need light chain guide for 38T chainring. Where is lightest one...? :o Very difficult find weights of chain guides. There is one: http://www.bike-x-perts.com/en/product_ ... _id/131932 , but it weights so much. :) Is anywhere titan/carbon guides or something lightier ones?

Contact this guy on ebay. He makes custom guards in any size you need and they only weigh 50-100g:

Lightest would be either a custom guide from Mattias at Experimental Prototype or the Helium Components guide (which I designed, link in my signature line)

But heavy as you need to use the Hope chainwheel with the attached chain guide ring/bash which will add 40g over a single chainring.
