Chainguide

Postby MichaelMLFC92 » Wed Nov 14, 2012 20:17 pm

Hello, I posted a while back asking which chainguide I should get. I got a Superstar Plasma but due to the fact that it's got an ISCG backplate with a BB adapter, it doesn't fit because the On One 456C has a chunky BB shell.

I need a chainguide which is only BB mount - no ISCG or ISCG-05 adapter.
Has to have a top guide and bottom roller.
It's obviously for a single ring setup. 32 tooth at the moment but will be getting a bigger one when I man up a bit.

I've found the MRP Lopes SL
http://www.mountainracingproducts.com/mrp/lopes-sl/
But it's ridiculously expensive for what it is and is apparently crap:

I don't want something like this:
http://www.e13components.com/product_lg1plus.html
because it's got a bash guard at the bottom and is overkill for what I want it for.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any other guides like the MRP Lopes, BB mount only, top and bottom guide, for single ring because I can't find any.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Apologies if this is meant to be in the Buying Advice section.

Looks really nice but it's still £100. Looks less like it'll fall apart than the MRP Lopes does. Seems crazy to spend that much on a chainguide though, when my wheels were less and came with tyres, tubes, rotors and a cassette.

Does anyone else have any other suggestions?

Almost all of the non e13 or mrp ones-the cheap ones- are very similar to the superstar one.

I managed to find an e13 LG1 on PinkBike. It seems as if that one isn't on the e13 website any more though...

Gamut P30 - that's what i'm running. Still about £100, but that's what chain guides cost. Does the job well, as long as you keep the bottom roller lubed.
