    Chain Guide Suggestions?

    I have a 2005 KONA Stinky, and am looking to buy a decent chain guard/ tensioner for it. Any Suggestions?

    You looking for a dual ring or a single ring setup?

    I run two rings and a bashguard and run a MRP Long Range Patrol and like it, but I'd probably lean towards an E-Thirteen DRS in the future. I went for the LRP because it was cheaper and came recommended by the folks at Kona. It's worked ok, but I bent the sh!t out of it almost immediately after getting it and it hasn't quite worked the same since. Another chain tensioner that supposedly works well for 2 rings is the Heim (sp?) tensioner.

    For single rings, again both MRP and E-Thirteen make popular setups.

    E13...No question. Quietest, strongest, smoothest, flawlessest. lol Best there is. If your bike has an external BB (RaceFace X-Type) and no ISCG, there's a few mods to get it to work (same with any CG) but nothing major. My advice, let your local bike shop slap it on and go ride. E13.
