Chainguide either attaches to ISCG mounts or e-type adapter plate. Cranks shouldn't matter.

For a lot of 3-piece cranks you'll have to purchase a spider in order to run a 4/5 bolt bashguard or chainring.

e13 makes a chainguide specifically for microdrive btw.

What size is the BB shell? If it's Euro size and has ISCG or ISCG05 mounts, then you mount directly to the frame. If it's euro and no ISCG tabs at all, you mount under the BB cup. If it's an American BB shell, than it must have ISCG05 mounts to mount a chainguide. An American shell with no ISCG05 mounts will not accept any chainguide to the best of my knowledge.

I've seen a MRP mounted to an American shell. It used a euro conversion and the e-type backplate. It took a bit of modification to the backplate.
