    Single Ring Chain Guide

    OK folks, I know this topic has been discussed before but for some reason I'm not getting much using the search function. I am thinking about going to a single ring guide for the fall/winter (the epic rides kinda shut down for the winter) and I am wondering if any of you have advice on which guide you think works best for this application. I want a smooth operator that works well using a 11-34. Any suggestions would be great. I'd like to use a 32-36 capacity.

    Thanks

    Lots of choices depending on how much $$$ you want to spend......

    cheapest choice: remove the big ring and replace with a bashguard. remove your front derailler, and replace with a N-Gear Jump Stop.

    This works relatively well especially if you ride a hard-tail. If you have full-squish, you might have to look at getting something more bomb-proof like a bashguard, rear-guard, and chain-guide like the Blackspire Stinger, or a a boomerang style bash and chainguard combo.

    Thanks. I've got an '06 Enduro Pro with a Stinger on it. It works well and I've got an e-thirteen DRS on my Blindside and it works well also. I just thought I'd give the single ring option a try with a bonafide chainguide on the all mountain rig. I'll need to get one anyway for some super D races next year and thought I'd give it a go for some trail rides to see if I'm man enough to pedal it around.

    I did my local 15 miler tonight using only my middle ring to see how it felt and it wasn't too bad so I'm considering even more now. Thanks for any input.
