    Does this work as a bash guard too? The bit of plastic on the bottom looks really thin

    e.13 has amazing customer service and are the originals as far as making competent chainguides.

    The new e.13 LG-1+ will take the cake; it has a built-in bashgaurd (sort of like a taco) but it weighs much less than the current ones.

    is customer service really that important? i mean you put the chainguide on and you're done. it's not something that needs to be looked after.

    Very nice. I've been very happy with mine. I've thrashed it many times against rocks and it's held up real well.

    MRP G2 mini if you don't go over a 36 tooth in the front will fit nicely

    Just cause you don't have the IQ to properly setup e13 products doesn't mean they suck.

    They look sweet, But I'm an E13 guy myself. I've got an LG-1 on my Remedy. And the LG-1+ looks super sick, but I'm impatient and I'm about to build up a new bike... So I got another LG-1. I think the +s are expected late this month or May. Kind of cool though. Quality Bicycle Products closed out the old LG-1s to make room for the new ones. Got a killer deal.

    The LG-1s are still light.

    always been an e13 guy myself, have run everything they've made as it was so much better than the old metal MRP crap back in the day.

    The New G2 is the shiznit though. Much sturdier than the old lg-1, yet ok on weight. The new lg-1 will take the cake though.

    For the time being, the g2 is the guide to have. super thick bash, sturdy hardware, and decently easy set up.


    And for the record SMT, e13 has had the 'little der pulley' since the first one.

    I have an LG1 and a G2. I have over a year of riding on both. (9months on G2).

    So far they are about the same, hold the chain very nicely, the only problem with the lg1 is the taco setup isnt too tough, i have broken the tabs/backplate when impacting an object. The G2 has been holding up great, but makes a little noise in some gear combos due to tight clearance.

    i was leanin hard towards a lg1 till i talked to a old vet who described a theory to me. it goes like this: with a taco bash, all that energy is transfered to the iscg tabs and the risk of frame damage increases several fold so he suggested stayin with a standard round guard. cranks are cheaper than a frame, he told me. i agreed. so whats a boy to do when he wants solid protection, no questions asked chain retention, good looks and light weight without payin off the national debt? a gamut p-30, son! mines installed and went on without a high iq. hope to give a report as soon as i have time and opportunity to ride it. spring has not been kind out here. the only remaining question is what to do with my srs and gizmo guides.

    I'm running a 38T front ring, it fits fine. Looks like room for a 40t although I haven't tried it.

    They are sweet, although there is little mud room in the tight clearances.

    my mrp literally took 5 seconds to install. Simply attached BB mount to bb cup, done. It was really challenging. O wait, I had to install the bash too. No dropped chains yet...

    Nice!! Are able to instal it yourself? Took you like 5 hours to replace a bolt last weekend and then you stripped out the replacement. Just remember the bashgaurd goes under the bottom bracket, and not on top. I'll install it for you for $35!!!

    FYI, your credit card number is showing on your invoice.

    With the new SRS being something like 30g heavier than the new LG-1, I don't see why too many people will buy the LG-1. Full bash ring protection and a far lesser chance of ISCG tab damage is worth the tiny weight penalty. So I think the new SRS will take the cake, personally.
    And Bob, $150 for a chain guide! And an MRP at that! CRAZY!!!!!!

    he said that mrp's issue was not getting the patents. finding the e13 patents just confirms that.
