I went riding yesterday in the desert and the rocks chewed up my stock chain guide/guard. I want to replace it and can't decide between aluminum or plastic. Fredette Racing and Scotts Performance make some nice aluminum ones, BRP makes a sweet looking billet aluminum one, I've also checked out T.M. Designworks plastic guides, which are supposed to be pretty durable.

So what do you think, aluminum or plastic?

I was a little worried about using a plastic chain guide but my T.M. Designworks guide has been going strong for about a year now and I ride some rocky stuff. It's a bit gouged up on the front but it's been remarkably durable. :cry:

I think I'll go with the T.M. Designs chain guide. I'm also going to install one of their chain slides as well.
