Valid suggestion but I don't like longer bolts as it's not 'clean' also they are heavier so may well offset the deficit of using the inners!
Stephen, perhaps you should offer inner (thinner) and outer bash type rings in CF individually!
I'm opting for an E13 ring and an XCX guide. I like the idea of dual guide rings though, and time will tell how reliable a guide is.
- RF Turbine 180 with RF SS 302t ring
- Shaman Racing ChainGuide
- KMC X10 SL chain - shortened as much as possible on 32-36 gear
Never had any problem at all.. even when I tried setup without chainguide...
On my commuter (1x9) without a chainguide the chain kept coming off on shifts......

We can do them easily. 2mm inner and 3 to 4mm outer would seem about right. We wouldn't have a 'standard' set as the diameters would all need to be fairly custom depending on the size of the chainring.

That depends very muh on where you ride really though! I'd prefer to not run a bash, but would prefer to rather than keep damaging chainwheels!
The Hope chainring with built in guide is a really nice piece of kit. No idea on price though?
Hope make fantastic products, and this might be a great alternative to a chainguide if it can be used with a jumpstop or similar. However that does not solve backpedal shifts.
If a secure setup could be accomplished with a minimal chainguide and single ring, this is a close weight battle. Jumpstop/inner fence + IBR would be damn close to a single ring + XC guide.
