    Anyone running a bash or chain guide on a Reign?

    I just got the call from the shop. I will be the owner of a Reign in less than a week. I had been running a bash guard on my NRS instead of a big ring. I never missed it on the NRS, even when I went up to the mountains. Most of the riding I do is singletrack. On the plus side, I get a little more clearance and never have to worry about the chain dropping. On the minus side, I lose the high end gearing (which I really didn't miss). Is anyone else running a bash or chainguide. Most of the posts I am seeing the Reigns all have the big ring. What to do?

    I am most interested in the DRS from e.13. The DRS allows you to run a small and middle ring. I checked with e.13, the DRS only needs a slight modificatin to work on the Reign. Does anyone know what BB to use with the DRS on a Reign? I have both octalink XT 113 and 118.

    FWIW the Reign has less pedal bob in the big ring, so it's nice to have it when you want to sprint DH.

    I run a bash and never had a dropped chain. I would try a bash ring and no DRS just yet.
