    They are US$25, or $30cdn.

    Some people say they aren't strong enough for hardcore FR and DH, but they are light, cheap, and work pretty well, and available for all mounting setups (BB, BMXBB, ISCG, ISCG05)

    Heim makes a guide for three rings. I am using a Stinger on my RFX with 2 rings and I really like it. With considerable use it has only dropped the chain ONCE.

    Yeah, big chainrings are overrated anyway.
    I suppose for racing Super D there might be times you want/need a big ring...

    I think I found the answer that it only works on middle and small. Will the stinger fit on a specialized rockhopper pro? If so which mount type do i need. I've been having this issue with chain jump since I got the bike and havent been able to find any advice really on how to fix it. This sounds like what i need. I dont really need the heavy duty $120 stuff I dont think just sumthin to keep my chain in place while riding sum ruff stuff.

    Just get a bottom bracket mount stinger. I guess you need to check with what type of BB you are using (external BB or not). If you have an external BB the Stinger will take the place of the spacer that you may have needed.
