    Altitude '13 single ring chainguide options

    I'm orking on a couple of drivetrain changes on my Altitude. The 2x10 + clutch derailleur works okay but still contemplating a single ring setup....

    I just noticed RMB specs an E13 XCX guide on the 2014 Altitude 799 using the swingarm S3 derailleur mount, rather than the ISCG tabs. Anybody have an idea why?

    (May end up just sticking with 2x10 and one of these TRS Race Dual Guide | the hive )

    I imagine they just had to pick one, they are both about the same cost and weight, maybe a coin toss. Although more likely it was the speed at which it goes on the bike in final assembly that would favour a two bolt mount over a three bolt.

    Use one of the Race Face narrow/wide rings and you can likely ditch the chainguide on a 1x10.

    I ordered a Wolf Tooth direct mount for my '13 Altitude, no chain guide.

    Cheers, thanks for the ideas! Will probably end up going for a narrow-wide 34t and an S3 mount as absolutely required
