    I run 32T with bashguard/ngear up front and 11-34 in the rear. I love this combination and the simplicity of it. I wish I could find a short cage SRAM rear derailleur to complete the transformation.

    I had problems bending the granny and middle rings when I had three rings up front. Once I was committed to 1x9 and got a new crankset, I sold all three rings and installed a singlespeed 32T. This is much beefier than a ramped and pinned 32T.

    Ngear on the inside.
    Bashguard on the outside.

    My chain has come of twice and only in the most extreme situations.

    I've used the Rohloff chainguide on my hardtail (no bashguard) with success. I was looking for something light and it's 60 g (+/- 2 oz), so...
