    I’ve managed to get my Paul chain keeper to work 1×9 but its at a jaunty angle rather than flat completely covering the chain. I just can’t be bothered to buy a different chain device and sell the Paul one.

    That said, I also have a clutch mech ready to get fitted as have realised a top chain device alone isn’t enough when it gets really rocky.

    What about if you use the Paul extension bar?

    Hi, can anyone recommend a chain guide for running 1 x 10 on a Niner Air9?

    I’m using the rear clutch to help with chain tensioning but I don’t trust it on its own. I’d like to replace the front mech with a simple chain guide.
    The seatpost diammeter is 34.9 and it flares out towards the bottom bracket and it means that a ‘Paul Components Chain Keeper’ does not go low enough down the seatpost to meet the chain.

    Thanks for looking.

    That’s neat. Now, if it was just a third of the price and available to buy in the UK…

    Wow, that extension bar is spot on and I wouldn’t waste the investment in the Chain Keeper. Thanks.

    Ahem. Still not all that cheap though.

    You’re right and then there’s the USA postal charges too.
    Back to the drawing board.

    That link I posted was to a UK stockist (London fixie nichemiesters Brick Lane Bikes) who want £20 plus £4 postage for it – not cheap but equally much less than eg. buying a high mount E13 XCX+. And no US postal charges.

    Thank you for that, I didn’t spot that.
