    Chain guide help for the One

    I have a 2012 One, running the new e13 TRS+ cranks, with the e13 BB, and e13 dual ring guide. I coud not for the life of me get the chain line right, so I took it to my LBS and the conclusion is they cant get the guide close enough (inboard to the BB, to allow room for the chain to shift between the rings. I, as well as the LBS tried all configurations of BB spacers but seems like a no go. I was wondering what guides others are running as it appears the e13 will not work.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    Contact canfield...they'll know which guides work...I asked many questions when I was ordering my 2013 the One, and Sean was great about answering everything.

    Worked it out it Canfield. The new e13 2x guide will not work on the One. MRP 2x works perfectly.

    Sean comes through again. Gotta love the Canfield customer service.

    I ran the 2x for several months and didn't like it. Yes it fits very well on the frame, but, at least for me, the lack of a "ring" guard made the chain fall off when the trail got very bouncy. I lost my chain off the top many times, and a few times I had it fully derail off the ring and guide. That's not fun.

    I eventually swapped it out for the Gamut P3 Dual, which I liked a lot. I have it for sale for pretty cheap too atm. Here
