So before I get chided, I did use the search function before I posted
I don't want to use one of those clunky DH chain guides, or a bash ring for that matter if I can avoid it, but I'm having one heck of a time keeping the chain on my 1x9. In fact, I've actually made it a 1x8 by taking the second smallest cog and putting it all the way to the inside of the freewheel body to act as a spacer narrowing the spread of the cassette by one full gear. This worked, mostly, but the chain still drops unless I'm in the biggest going downhill.
I'm considering shortening the chain, but I don't want to stress the rear derailleur. Is this the answer? Any other suggestions? Is this just a part of life with a 1x9?
