    Best chainguide for Carbine

    What guide works best on the carbine? I'm using xtr plus derailleur, but looking for a little more chain tension to avoid chain dropping off on fast runs during Enduro racing.

    I have used the c.guide on my Tracer VP with great results. Was thinking of maybe trying the Truvativ X2 guide on my carbine, I'm just not sure about combining a guide with the XTR plus derailleur. It might cause to much tension and more noise with the cage on a XTR plus being in the on position. Still have my c.guide, so I will experiment before buying something else.

    I'm running a C-guide with a SRAM X9 Type-2 rear derailleur. Works great!

    Good to hear, I'll have my bike built next week and give the c.guide a run.

    This works if you aren't running a front derailleur
