    which chain keeper for 2012 One Nine

    Seems like the BB chain keepers are out thanks to the EBB design, but will the paul components seat tube chain keeper work? If you notice, the front derailleur cable stop is really close to the where the chain keeper would mount. If not, what other options are there?

    You need to find one that matches the front derailleur style. For instance the e.thirteen xcx-st high mount.

    I did see the e.13, but it's a $100 any cheaper options?

    buy an N- gear jump stop and give it a go, for $10, its not a big investment if it doesn't work

    N-Gear Jump Stop Chain Guide > Components > Drivetrain > Chain Tensioners and Guides | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    used one on my air 9 with no problems.

    You shouldn't need Any type of chain keeper on a SS frame with EBB. You should be able to tension the chain enough that it shouldn't fall off.

    I ASSUME the OP is looking to run this particular bike 1x10 since the frame capable of "going both ways"

    I'll be riding 1x10 with a modified 960 xtr crankset so can't have a bashgaurd. Looks like e.13 is my only option.
