    New question here. 2001 Dare - Chainguide?

    I am looking around for a single ring chainguide for my 2001 Dare. I am wondering what chainguides I should steer away from. Especially the ones you all have tried to get it to fit by burning an entire day tinkering with the CG, only to end up giving up in fustration and end up having to sell it.

    The setup of the bike:
    Northshore cranks (5 hole, 110mm with 170 mm arms) with 34 t ring and a DH chainstay. I use a 40 t ring for chairlifted rides at local ski resorts. Basically, a versatile CG would be preferred so I can change my ring from 34 t to a 40 t and back, then make my adjustments on the CG.

    The one CG I am seriously considering is e.13 SRS (www.e13components.com). The ones I've looked at are MRP, Mr Dirt Gizmo (I hear that they have a fitting problem with bikes that have Northshore cranks, so I am not sure if that is true), and Truvativ Boxguide.

    Any help or insights would be greatly appreciated.

    Here is a pic of a 2001 Dare.

    Chain Divices

    Go with the e13. The TruVativ box guide is no where near as nice as some of the others. The other one we use a lot at the shop is the Black Spire chain devices, but with the range of chainring sizes you will be using they will not be working as effectivly as the e13, with the adjustable hight of the top guide.
