    2 x 10 chainguide for delirium

    I have my d as 1 x10 right now but want to try 2 x10. Most of the new guides i've seen don't work with etype derailleurs. Any recommends on some of the older chain guides or is there a new guide that will work that i haven't seen?

    MRP 2x guide. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I see no reason it shouldn't work.

    The only guide I know of that works is the Blackspire Stinger E-Type, I ran it for a while before going 1x.

    Thanks for the replies.

    It doesn't look like there is a backing plate to mount the derailluer to on the mrp.

    The blackspire is definately the best option price wise. Any issues with it while you were running 2 rings?

    No issues with the Stinger that I found. I went 1x on my Delirium because thinking about chainline when you're going fast downhill is a pain.
    That and the front shifter prevented ideal Reverb remote mounting. I have to push (a lot) more on the ups and top out on the downs, but the compromise was worth it for me.

    Pity you didn't post this a bit sooner, I was down in Van last weekend and could have given you some of the gear (for a doz or equivalent ).

    Yeah bummer. I like the 1x10 for the same reasons but spent last week in the kootenays and got fed up with the pushing

    Got a pic? That's the same guide I'm running for my 1x10. Not sure how you would make it work with a front mech.

    Edit: Figured out the difference. The Delirium only has one frame mounting hole for the E-type FD, so it needs the BB/ISCG mounting bracket. The newer Knolly frames appear to have two mount points, so you don't need the bracket and can use whatever 2x guide you want (i.e. Blackspire Twinty, MRP 2x).

    Nice bikes! Especially the Podium. Looks like you're running the Twinty.
