- one guide to rule them all….possible?
I’m thinking of running a Bionicon v2 chain-guide only after having to retire my Superstar components chain-keeper after 2 years of service. It never really was a fit n forget solution so I’m hoping the Bionicon will suffice on my 1 x 9 BFe.
Any thoughts? Am I better served with something else or even a top & bottom guide combined?Posted 4 years agotoys19Member
I have a Blackspire DER on my BFe ,no moving parts v light (150g) and never fails.Posted 4 years agonjee20Subscriber
Having had a Superstar one for a couple of years and recently changed to an E.13 XCX I can confirm it is light years better.
However… Thick thin ring has to be worth a consideration. Will work fine on 9 speed, but can’t say how well they’ll work without a clutch mech.Posted 4 years agodonalMember
Can’t comment on the superstar guide. Have been using the E13 XCX for a couple of weeks now and it is working great with a clutch mech. I am using it with an ISCG adaptor which makes adjusting chainline a little easier if needed. However, the chainline was perfect without any shims between the backplate and the ISCG adaptor. It is very solid and very well built (as you would expect for the price).Posted 4 years ago
