    Possible to fit a MRP chain guide onto a '12 anthem X1?

    Already blown up 1 rear der (close on the 2nd) and 2 chains due to losing the chain on aggressive DH.

    The bike doesn't have post mounts however I was just told yesterday b/c it's a press fit BB I might be stuck using something that mounts to the chainstay.

    Would prefer the mrp (or something equivalent) with inside drop protection and a 'light' bash option - as I also blow through big chainrings.

    FWIW I'm not just going to buy a new bike, thanks

    I've used to suffer from chainslap in my bike. This little device fixed it, it might help you too.

    Not that I've used one, but imagine you could make it work.

    Uh yeah, I know you don't want to hear it but you bought the wrong bike. Or it was ok until you branched out and changed the type of stuff you like to ride.

    Had just gotten back into riding after an 8 year hiatus w/ no bike. The anthem seemed like it would be good for what I want to do - I still do like to climb and go fast. However going fast also includes DH and some of the chunkier stuff around here throws the chain on a fairly regular basis. It's really only become an issue as I've gotten faster. When I first got the bike, no issues at all for the first ~6 months or so.

    Now I drop the chain a few times per ride.
