    Looks awesome. If I were going 1x9 I would definitely get one. Blingy, and it sounds like it works nice.

    how is it different from any other chainring guide? On the surface it seems like just another anodized bike part.

    I agree if you're considering a 32t or 34t version as you can get an inner bashguard that mounts to the granny holes for very cheap and do the same thing. However the 28t and 30t versions are cool in that they let you run a chainring smaller than would fit in the middle ring position and are offset back towards that middle position

    You could go to Homebrewed Components and get a chainring and bashguard for less.

    Do a tread search on the Widgit. I was considering one but read some posters bent them. I think it was on the Ibis forum.

    Looks like it mixes the ratio's. A little of each chainring combined.
