    Chain Keeper

    I have a 2012 Trek SF100 al and I am looking for a chain keeper that will work with the BB95 integrated bottom bracket,
    or a seat tube type that will fit the 36.2mm tube. Suggestions.

    (Assuming you're not using a front derailleur)
    Not sure the diameter, but it is made for seat tube mounts:

    MRP 1.X Guide > Components > Drivetrain > Chain Tensioners and Guides | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    I have the direct-mount version and works great. Haven't dropped a chain since I put it on.

    Check these out

    Sounds like you're looking for a one piece combo unit. I have the XC seat tube type along with the C-Guide by Bionicon.

    I have the C-Guide alone and haven't dropped a chain yet, also helps eliminate chain slap if you don't have a clutch RD

    I've got 2 of the BB mount e*13 XCX guides and they work great. You have to use specific lubes w/the Mekelron material, but that's NBD. I have used the Blackspire Stinger BB mount as well and those have worked very good too, plus they eliminate chain slap so it's a bonus with them.

    Believe it or not, the $10 N-gear chain guide works well, have it on two different bikes I converted to 1x9. Simple and cheap solution to the problem.

    True. Is yours on a ht or fs? Bashring or not?

    Going on a SF I'm assuming the OP wants neither....
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    One is on a hard tail, the other on a FS Epic. Both have bash guards which I think is a good combo.

    Swap out the rear derailleur for one with a clutch. Save some weight and keeps the bike looking clean. I use a combination of SLX Clutch and the N-gear jump stop and bash guard sandwich.

    Chain Keeper

    I'm using a Paul's on an Air 9, with XTR 1X and I have yet to drop the chain. I'm using a salsa 1X 32T chainring on a Race Face crank, and the combo works fantastically.
