    Narrow wide chain rings

    Anyone here have any experience with running a narrow wide chain ring on a DH bike? Putting together a new bike and the chain ring I got turned out to be an NSB narrow wide chain ring. Going to be using a Gamut P20 guide.

    Well I have it, so I might as well try running it. Not like it was expensive, and if does work out so well I'll put it on my trail bike.

    Ahh. Well out of the saddle sprinting you'll notice it in a good way

    I have one on my DH bike. I still use a chainguide. I don't notice a difference between my previous Saint ring to the RF ring.

    Since you have a full guide it does not really matter. Just make sure you always have that guide on because the narrow wide rings still need it, especially on a DH bike.

    Wouldn't even consider running my DH without a guide. Even on my all mountain I still have a one up guide
