    Early Nomad Chain Guide ?

    New to the idea of a chain guide. Nomad v1.5. Want to keep it a 2x9. Looking for suggestions on chain guide options - MRP 2X with new 2 ring fd, blackspire stinger with bash guard, Gamut? I just want to ride (and on a budget)...

    Stinger + bash guard.
    Simple, inexpensive, and works great.
    BB mount Stinger works with almost any bashguard.

    Yep, stinger works. I had it on my 2007 Nomad, and now it is on my Nomadc. Still works great. Still 2x8 with bash too.

    I used th Stinger on my 1st gen Nomad and was finally irritated enough by it getting jammed up into th frame (from banging into logs & such), that I bought an e.13 Heim2 guide. I don't much care for e.13'z beehive bash guard so I used an old e.13 I had to pr w/it.
    The main reason I like the Heim2 is it has a lil nub that hits the btm of the frame and keeps it from jamming the chain up into the frame. Problem solved.
    FYI: this guide plate was too short to work w/my VP Free, it doesn't reach far enough to btm out on the frame.

    I have an e13 DRS on my gen 1 Nomad. Definitely would not recommend it.
