    ...<b>yet.</b> From what I've been told, if he's happy with it, they are going to manufacture and sell them. I could be wrong though

    I was wondering about that myself. I saw Chase at Monster Park, and even got to talk to him for a minute, but I forgot to ask him about it. The bike he was riding at Monster Park didn't have it though, I think it was just a regular E13. He was on a pretty sweet ride though, a custom white Prophet with the Chase logo on it.

    Brad has an SMT bash guard, which I'm sure is better than the one Chase is running.

    Chase is running a prototype chainguide system from Cannondale. No production plans yet. It's a completely enclosed system that has a 26t ring inside. Made of nylon, bolts to ISCG mounts. Chase says it is strong and slides like "snot out of a two year-old baby's nose".

    I'd be willing to bet that it is better than the SMT model. Cannondale has a habit of over-engineering things to the point of near perfection.

    Sweet
    Ok there are a few "NEW" small guides out there , E-13 has one (bla) the Chase is kinda cool .. it consist of a backing plate made from cnc machined delrin and a outter bashring/cover , the entire chain is encased and there is a small bit of drag on Chases setup and it all plastic , from what I here it's only for a 26T no changing gears I have seen 2 versions of this guide on Chases bike .

    Ok Yes my new Prototype SMT works better than any chainguide I have ever had .
    The bashguard and outter ring are super sold and the plastic they use slides faster than any other bash ring I have ever had , the outter MacNeil guard sprocket is comming off though , I have a new 27T that should fit better nad have a wider outter bashring for better lip slides on spines and such .
