    I was worried about that also. I clean my chain after about every ride. The Bashwich and Wigget seem like they would be hard to deal with.
    If the path ahead looks dangerous ------- it probably is!

    ^nice! How you like the brain? The alloy epic is an option I'm looking into in about a year, just unsure about the brain.

    Thanks.

    I love the Epic and really like the brain, but I've nothing to compare it to as it's my first FS.

    When I first got it, I kept messing with the brain settings during my rides, instead of giving one setting a chance for a few days to see how much I liked it. Its definitely worth experimenting with though if / when you first get it.

    Now I have it all dialed in the way I like it, I never touch it. Only exception was when I went to Moab where I set it fully opened.

    My '07 MKIII. It's been upgraded just a bit. BBG bashwich with a Blackspire 32t front and 11-36 rear. Sorry for bad cell pic.

My only problem is that I get some bad, annoying rubbing on the bash in my smallest few gears.

    I ordered a Salsa 32T single speed chainring, along with some shallow bolts. I am thinking about running this ring with the Jump-Stop but without a bash.

    My question for all you experts is about chain-line: Since I am sticking with a 32T ring the same size as my stock middle ring, and going without a bash, do I need to do anything with my chain-line, or should it set up just fine? I am a complete noob when it comes to chainline, so any info/advice would be great.
    I had the same problem with slight rubbing on lowest two gears. Try some .6mm chainring bolt spacers, worked for me.

Thoughts, 1x9 guys?
    0.6mm chrainring bolt spacers. I had the same issue. With these the chain won't fit between the ring and inner guard.

    I love this bike, especially the raw frame. You can tell this bike has seen a LOT of trail time (in a good way). Reminds me of my old '98 GT Zaskar (I miss that bike).

    Nice ride. Frame finish looks hot, did you buff it out or something?

    I love aluminum frames with the paint stripped.. 1 more!

    Nowhere as sexy as those bikes, here is my wife's 1x9 Hammer which I just lightened it by 1.1lb (18 unused gears). She is loving it after 3 days (20km) ride. Blackspire 36T front and X9 rear derailer works like charm.
    Sweet ride. Last one!

    Here's mine. Found an old Klein on craigslist for a steal. Have hardly put any money into it (yet.. give me time) and it rides great. Front derallieurs have always been my least favourite part on any bike. Looks so much cleaner without one. Going to try a Thudbuster post and the Stans tubeless conversion kit for next season (sadly in around 4 months from now). Eventually want to pick up a SRAM short cage RD and a new fork.

    Well, it is a G2 SL Mini for Ibis with the lower guide snapped off. : I have already replaced it with a G2.

    Was the lower guide snapped off intentionally? Because I'm looking for a chain guide + skid without lower chain guide...

    Unfortunately, no. A stick in the drive train made the skid break around the pulley bolt hole. I filed the skid down a bit to not interfere with the chain and had been happily riding it for a few weeks before I got the G2.

    I know, right? That is exactly what I'm looking for to replace my BBG bashwich. Once the outer bash bends (REALLY easy to do), it's rather hard to get it perfectly straight again. At this point, the outer bash had so many bends straightened, it rubs on the chain when I'm toward the small cog making an annoying grating noise.

    Fortunately, MRP is coming out with the AMG - it should be in retailers hands by mid-December (as soon as I saw it's announcement, I sent MRP an email asking when it would be out!). Can't wait to get my hands on this (on the right side below)!

    Here is my setup, 1x10, with some gettho 2 stingers as chain guide. whatever works. I lost one roller long time ago, now I put bolt & nut with bushing for top guide.
    I hv those 2 stingers in my garage for awhile, so I use them both now, since last week only, it was 3x10. luckily my bike came with 2 spacers on drive side, so replaced them with 2 stingers, no problem.

    2nd update

    Swapped the XT long cage for a medium shadow one. Much less chain slap and crisper shifting.

    Horrible original "X mission" saddle replaced with a Selle Italia XR flow.. 80g lighter and much more comfortable...

    Total weight lost = 100g.

    Overall bike weight: 29.4lb

    you guys seem to be experts on this subject for a 1x9 or 1x10 your chainline should be about 50-51mm? that's what a few minutes on google taught me, just wanted to double check on what you guys are running!
