    Chain guide options for 2011 Slayer - dropping chain into granny

    Want to see what others have used for their slayers. I have a 2011 Slayer 50. On the rough stuff I seem to be dropping my chain from my big ring to the granny. It doesn't go past that point but sucks when you try to pedal before a big jump or drop. By no means am I a hucker but this seems to be happening on most extended descents. Chain length is correct and the drivetrain is stock (Sram PG-950-9 11-34T). Shifting has been fine.
    I'd like to keep the 2x set up as I am not fit enough for a 1x at this time and I don't want to change anything else.

    I've searched the forums but chain guides are new to me. Not sure if the top and bottom guides are necessary, etc. Willing to change up my RF bash guard if needed. Thoughts?

    On my slayer I used one of the cheap blackspire stingers, and it solved my chain dropping problem. I'm not sure if the srock sram rear derailleur is a long cage or not, but it seems like they could have used a shorter cage on there to reduce some of the chain slack.

    E-13 or MRP,
    both make good chain guides

    Sounds to me like it might be a front derailleur problem. Maybe adjust it out a little when its on the big gear to keep it from trying to jump to the granny gear.

    I would try something from E13. The MRP guide just does not work well at all with the Slayer's axle path.
