- Which single ring seat tube mounted chain guide?
So I’ve ordered a custom made titanium 36t ring for my new M985 cranks to run single ring.
Next question… which chain guide?
Has to be seat tube mounted, as the Top Fuel has a press-fit BB. I can’t find many (well I’ve not found any, but I’ve not looked that hard) places selling the seat tube mounted MRP, but are there any other options?
Lightweight is the number one priority, not interested in a bash guard.Posted 7 years ago
Right now you’ve not got much choice that’s a reasonable weight- the e13 xcx.st is 73g but not available,
Billy’s have the MRP one (in white only- the black ones aren’t due for a wee while I don’t think) at 74g and nowhere near as tidy.
The Pauls is the neatest solution and not a cheeky-as-funk £75 (£75?!! Incredible.) at about £35-40 and is lighter at 69g. But Freshtripe have run out so you’d have to order from the US.Posted 7 years ago
Agree the E.13 one looks better, the MRP one looks a bit cheap and nasty! The Paul’s one looks neat, but I wonder if it would actually work, seems disproportionately heavy considering it’s size!
Who distributes E.13? May as well see if I can get one trade if they’re available now!Posted 7 years ago
Not that pretty but I have a DMR like this…
Works very well.Posted 7 years ago
DMR… yeah might do, but with the cable and shifter? Then again (and this is why I use it at the moment) it doesn’t freeze in the one position like my derailleur had a habit of doing. I was out on Sunday and my waterbottle froze near to Houndkirk. Pretty chilly to say the least.Posted 7 years ago
So, finally got around to installing this, and I need a high clamp mount, the Pauls guide fouls the lower shock mount. Bit annoying.
I’m still loathed to pay for the E13 one, although it does look neater than the MRP one, has anyone used one?
Half tempted to get a Superstar BB mounted one, and fashion a seat tube mount with a bolt on bottle boss and some rack stays or sommat. Probably look better than the MRP one and be about a third the price! Any other options out there yet?Posted 7 years ago
