    Chain Guide For 1x10 Niner MCR Race Bike

    I just purchased a Niner MCR from Pinkbike. The bike is awesome but the current KCNC chain device doesn't work very well. I would like to get a chain guide for it but I don't know what will fit. The current bottom bracket is a Truvativ GXP with a Truvativ Noir carbon 1x crank. Any help would be appreciated.

    going to a clutched rear derailleur would likely remove the need for a chain guide at all.

    Yep, use a clutched derailleur and a Wolf Tooth Components chain ring and you won't need a chain guide. Works well for me..

    A less expensive alternative than buying a new clutch derailleur and a new chainring would be to go with something like a Rohloff Chain Guide. Mine weighs 66g and has been perfect on my RIP with a 1 x 9 configuration.

    Thanks for the information everyone! After dropping my chain 3 times in a race yesterday, I decided to go the clutched route. I got an XO type 2 derailleur to replace my type 1 XO and a race face chain ring.

    I use the Bionicon C guide on my Jet 9 RDO. Works great and keeps things quiet.

    Chain Guide For 1x10 Niner MCR Race Bike

    I had a e13 guide on my 2012 Jet 9 RDO and it worked fine but was ugly and the noise it made in on the extreme outside/inside gears was annoying. Swapped it out with a 30t Race Face narrow wide ring and I'm much happier, it's clean looking, lighter and silent. (I used a Shimano Zee in both setups)
