    chainguide suggestions for the One

    i was wondering if one chainguide would work well for 2 setups:

    i will have it setup mostly with 2 rings up front(riding locally, derailer)
    and single ring (riding lifts). do you guys think one guide can work well under both cases? and if so, what do people recommend. i heard in 2 ring mode, just a lower taco works well without a roller.

    thanks
    Tom

    In 2x ring mode, you can get by without the lower roller, if you are running a front derail. Front derails are like chain guides in a lot of ways. In 1x ring mode, you MUST run a upper and lower guide on a suspension bike like The ONE. This is common question for sure, this is big reason the micro gearing concept is growing. Single ring simplicity with a mega gear range out back.

    thanks

    one more followup, is there then a guide where i could remove part of it in 2 ring mode and attach that part back on in single ring mode?

    That's a good question, I don't know of a guide. I'm gonna email MRP to see what they think!
