    1x9 Chainguides

    Okay so I am considering running a 1x9 setup on my fully, and wanted to get some feedback if anyone has been running a setup similiar to this. I'm currently running a 2x9 but rarely ever use the granny, so dropping the extra weight would be good. My current setup is a GT Force 1, so chain slack should not be a problem. I was looking at the E13 and BlackSpire offerings but don't know if these are good to run as a 1x9 setup. Thanks for the help/feedback!

    Is your bike FS or HT?

    On a HT I used a produt called a Jump Stop in place of my front Der wich worked great on a 1x9 setup. Plus it only cost like $8.

    On my FS I tried using a BB mounted black spire stinger. But I didn't like the way it altered my chain line and it would love if it took an impact. I gave up on running a chain guide on my FS until I get a bike with proper ICSG tabs.

    I'm going to run this on my FS. So are you still running a 1xp setup on FS without a chainguide? I was wondering about the BB mounted guides as my bike does not have an ICSG tab setup either.

    I've been using the e13 all summer with my 1x9 setup (full suspension). Has worked great so far, however the top guide has a crack in it. Stays on, but I can't tighten it. Have a replacement sitting at the shop.
