    Paging Chuck C X-post

    I am in the process of putting together a 1x9 for endurance races. I am trying to determine the best way to tension the chain. I saw ChuckC's chain guide and think that might be the way to go. I will be putting a new spider on my XTR cranks (952's).

    I have asked a similiar question here reciently, but I would really like to know if you think that this tensioner will give enough tension to go SS when I want to? I'm trying to do both with this bike (who knows it might become a SS full-time).

    My guestions are:

    Who makes that chain guide? (it had only an upper roller)
    Will the chainguide provide enough tension to run the bike SS when I want to?
    How much did it cost?
    Will I need a different BB? (don't think I will)

    Thanks,
    Winky

    oops

    I forgot to mention I would run the guide more rearward to put more tension on the chain. Will that be enough? Has anyone done this?

    That didn't work for me.
    I ran my MRP LRP (made for dual front rings, but works fine on singles too). That finally solved it.
