    New question here. chain guides

    I want to buy a chain guide/guard for a 36-22 front tooth sram s1200 crank. x7 front derailleur and shifters x9 rear derailleur 11-36 cassette 10 speed. does anyone know if there is a simple add on to reduce chain slap. the bike I want to buy has no protection of the chainstays.

    Do you want some chainring protection, too, or just chain retention?

    Something like this for the former:
    Blackspire TWINTY 2X (MRP and e.13 make similar guides, too)



    And this:
    Blackspire STINGER

    or this (for even more simplicity) for the latter:Bionicon C.guide v.2 or C.guide Eco

    I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

    the truvativ X-guide would be compatable with a double ring crank right?

    It would.It does seem to suffer a bit in the toughness department.There have been quite a few reports of the guide's outer plate breaking off easily.

    I have no experience with this model but have used a couple other 2x Blackspire models and they did the job very well.Anyway, a Twinty (or a E.13 TRS+ Dual DMB Guide, for exapmple) would be a good idea if you need chain retention and chain ring protection.If you don't need the latter you have much cheaper and lighter options I mentioned in my first post.
