    Scandal 1x9 conversion

    So I need to convert my Scandal to 1x9 for a long ride where SS is not an option. Wondering if anyone here has had experience with on of these on your Scandal?

    MRP 1x 32 36T Guide BB Mount Chain Guide Black | eBay

    Am totally open to other options for a chain guide, seems like they're quite expensive for what they are, but necessary.

    Thoughts?

    Yes, that is the guide that I run on my 1x9 Scandal and I can confirm that it works very well when adjusted out. I would say that it is quality made and is worth the asking price. As a possible alternative though, I hear that some have had success running the narrow wide front chainrings without the need of a clutch type derailleur, but I cannot confirm that myself.

    I've had no problems running a couple of my Inbreds with just a normal single speed chain ring. I've got a bashwich on another.
    My riding area is not rocky but has lots of roots, haven't dropped a chain since I went with the rings.
    I'd give the narrow wide rings a try. Also a short or medium derailleur.

    Pic of my Inbred 1x10.
    bashring + N-gear jumpstop.

    Works great for XC, looks better then MRP.

    Put about 20 miles in on the new set up and it worked like a charm. Everything I loved about this bike as a SS is just that much more amplified. With the lower gears it climbs fast and tracks well and I love the speed from the higher gears on decants and flats.
