    it mounts where the FD mounts (shimano direct mount).....my frame (HIFI) won't allow a jump stop or inner bash guard. was wanting to go 1x9.

    I'd fire off an email to mrpbikes.com and ask them. They don't show that part on their site, but it obviously exists. I wonder whether they made an OEM batch.

    I'm looking for the exact product.....trying to turn my Gary Fisher Rumblefish (same design as your hifi) into a 1X9 and this would be the ticket. If anyone finds this product please let me know. Thanks!

    Unfortunately the clamp on style guides will not work with the hifi/rumblefish due to the suspension design. I contacted MRP about the Direct Mount 1.X and they said that the product should be in stock around mid October...good news olddirtygt

    Problem solved. Take 5 min with a grinder and you could use it with a bashring. The 1x sucks, no ability to run bash.

    What was the problem? You can use "jump stop" with a bash ring setup: http://www.treefortbikes.com/product...op--349mm.html. It is cheaper and does not need any modifications.

    I run a solid downhill chainring so don't need a bash ring at all. And believe me MRP 1.x has better design for riding small drops, log, jumps and etc. I tried them both.

    The chain will not stay on my bike(Blur 4x, LT2, LTc) with an N Gear. The N-Gear is great for hardtails but is wildly inefficient for my riding style and bikes. The chain pops up and over the guide and it is super flimsy. I wrecked 4 of them. Cheap yes and cheap they are.

    I like security and piece of mind running my gear. There is not a single ring upper guide that takes a bashring on the market.
    I am immune to your disdain.

    That will only work with threaded BBs, not any pressfit. I'm pretty sure that any Hi-Fi that has a direct mount front derailleur also has a BB90 setup.

    This won't work on the hifi/rumblefish either due to chainstay clearance

    Anybody come up with a decent inexpensive (<$25) solution? I am also looking to go to 1x9 on my 2010 Hifi.

    The FD-mount 1x (still forthcoming, sorry guys) is likey the best solution for the Hifi. The pressfit BB eliminates just about any other option. The FD-mount 1x will run $69.95 when it is released.

    $70.00!!! That's absolutely rediculous. The BB mount 1X is can be had for $35.00

    Yeah, that is pretty pricey in my book too. But apparently the choices are pretty limited... as in one.

    Looks like I might have to just use my front derailleur and put a longer screw in it. Maybe I can wrap it in gorilla tape so it isn't so noisy.

    70$ is the retail the BB mount retail is 50$, you'll probably be able to find it cheaper once it comes out.

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead!

    Does anyone have a homemade solution to this problem? I have a 2011 Superfly Elite hardtail frame on the way... and I've run 1X9 for 2+ years now on my 2009 and 2010 SF frames, so I don't want to run a front derailleur. I have a MRP 1.X bottom bracket mount version, so I could use the plastic part of that and rig a mounting mechanism, maybe... any ideas?

    Two. The e.thirteen XCX-ST is similar, but will set you back a whopping $99.95

    From the photos, the MRP 1x looks like the sturdier product, and a comparative bargain.
    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.

    The e.thirteen isn't direct mount so it won't work on the Hifi/Rumblefish

    Here's what I've been using while I wait for the MRP version to come out.
    It's an Avid 185 post mount adapter with a couple of star washers to keep it from rotating.
    So far so good - It's been on my Rumblefish for about 8 months now, including a month getting smacked around on the Whistler valley trails.
    The bottom bolt needs to be pretty tight, however, and the cage is starting to crack - so I'm sure the MRP version with a guide slot is going to be better.
    I'm going to buy 2.

    Thanks for the idea! That was an ingenious way to make it work for a while. I'm going to try that with mine; might need a smaller adaptor (160mm?) due to a larger single chainring (36-38t depending on course).

    Pauls said that they're developing a version of their Chainkeeper that will bolt on to derailleur mounts.

    So there is nothing other than Rdaled's solution out there for this application ( guide for use with with bash on these GF's) ??

    rdaled- you wanna make another one of those?

    ejreyes6- do you think is one were to source shorter front bolt for the guide( and just toss the rear one), just the inner 1/2 poly peice could be used by itself, thus allowing bash clearance but inner drop prevention?

    What does this piece weigh? Website says 55-70g for 1x guides but doesn't say which model weighs what.

    53.2 g, just weighed, only missing the fixing bolt - so I guess it'd be ~55g with that.
