    New question here. Single sided HD/HDR/SLR etc carbon cable guides?

    Ahoy Pleasant Ibis People.

    I see single sided carbon cable guides (HD/HDR/SLR style) on some bikes here and there (Lopes maybe, among others). Are these just the usual doubles that folks have ground down, or are they available for purchase? The Ibis Online Store only appears to have the standard doubles.

    It would be nice for the many 1X drivetrain users out there to have the singles sided guides available stock or from the Ibis Store.

    A clean cockpit is a safe cockpit.

    Word up!

    I don't know about the aero dynamics angle, but the weight savings are soooo worth it.

    Those are modified by the owners.
    Use with caution, you have to adapt your riding style to the higher speeds.

    By the way, the XX-1 HD 142x12 offset RD hanger with enhanced clearance is in production and we should have them in a few weeks.
