    Nice, I'm guessing thats the weight for the DH race rims. If so, then the AM/FR's would probably be around the 500g mark then?

    Real curious to see how you like those rims Ricky. They look like a great alternative to the 823s.

    Might be some old news, but I see your able to buy the 150mm Micro via their site.

    Though if your in the market for the 135x12 (like me) we're still gotta wait..... How long?!

    Throw the dogs a bone would ya!

    I tried the 1x10 on my banshee but i'm still missing the super low gearing of my old 2x9 setup, going spiderless + this hub would give me both options any news on the 135x10 axle ones?

    I was told a couple of weeks ago by one of the fellas at Canfield's that the rest of the hubs should be ready to go by mid March. Fingers crossed.....

    They will be done done mid May, then sitting on a boat for a bit. The hubs will start shipping from the US in the middle of June. We will have 135 x 10 QR, 142 and 135 x 12. We have the 150 x 12 and the 9 speed 9-26 cassettes and the 10 speed conversion kits shipping now.

    Lance, do you have any weights on the hubs figured out yet? I like my 240 hub for its weight and reliability and would have to have these be somewhat comparable to help with the rationalization factor. Can give up a bit considering the 1x10 options it opens up but ideally there is no need for me to compromise.

    I saw that as well. Tried to get an answer from MRP as to when the guide would be ready to go, but like the few other times I've tried to contact them I've been left high and dry without a response.

    Received my Micro SL on Friday, looks good and small! All I need now is the 28t from Home Brewed to rock up and then I can slap 'em onto the Middleburns and then onto my One.

    Hopefully next month will yield that last piece to the puzzle

    BigCRS, is the lower tension portion of the guide a roller wheel? Or, a slider? (Which seems to be getting more and more common due to it's simplicity and lack of maintenance)
    I'm pretty much done with lower roller wheels.
    As much as I love my Gamut P20, I recently had to replace the whole lower roller after we got caught out in a storm in Delaware (think fine, silty mud). One ride and it was toast.
    ....and $30.
    Then, I see Gamut released a slider at Sea Otter. Go figure.

    Not trying to rob the thread. I really like the looks of this MRP.... and 28T micro. Perfect for my trail needs here in PA.

    Wondered if you could post a photo of the lower bits, BigCRS?

    Answered my own question as I read the fine print in the description of the guide on the MRP site: "Integrated Skid/Lower Guide including sealed bearing pulley wheel"........ I'll keep it on my radar for the next planned build but I'll be patiently waiting for a slider.... Or, possibly a whole other guide, even if from someone else. Or, hope that replacement parts are inexpensive should something happen crud wise to this guide....

    It is basic jockey wheel of derailleur, so not so expensive.

    After a long wait for parts to arrive I finally got the chance to on to throw the Mini SL and Middleburn's. I'd put the order in for a Hombrewed 28t ring, but after 10 weeks of waiting (12 weeks and still waiting) I coughed up the cash and ordered a Middleburn 32t ring as a place holder, just so I could things running.

    But F%$k!! It turns out that the Micro Guide and the Middleburns don't and won't work together! The cranks rub up hard against the top and bottom chain guides. I've spaced, adjusted, shifted the guide to try and make things work in harmony. I'm gunna have another look at tomorrow, but it looks like I'm up for another type crankset.

    The four bolt won't work, but the 5 bolt does. I found this out the hard way....gave up on the 28t and went with a 30t, 5 bolt. I also had to shave some material to get everything just right.

    The Micro doesn't work with 104BD cranks.

    From the website:

    "*Will not work with 104BCD cranks, requires use of MRP Bling Ring or similar, spider-less style chainrings or sprockets."

    What you need is the chain ring that Middleburn offers that is direct mount, no spider. Chris and I both are running the middleburns with a 32 tooth ring and the micro guide. Fits great.

    Do you have the RS7 or RS8 cranks? Sorry if you mentioned it before, what was the problem you had when you were using the 28t? Was it Homebrewed?
