Sweet. A CG makes a big difference. What size ring are you running?

Looks cool. Have you ridden it to see how much of a difference it makes?

BlackSpire Mono Veloce 34. Im considering a 36 next season.

I took it for a spin a few hours ago and damn it makes a difference. It helped me to ride harder knowing I didnt have to worry about my chain popping off.

Your chain popped off? Mine just hops to the lowest ring.. guess its somewhat handy to have a smaller one underneath

I went single ring almost two months ago. Without a guide, it kept popping off and inevitably chain sucked.

Now I need one. My riding must have changed from previous seasons because on my roast now I loose the chain 3 or 4 times a ride...arg...stupid single ring setup.

Nice setup. SGS is sweet

I dont think you can fit 2 rings with the SRS but I could be wrong. Email e13 and ask them.

You won't be able to keep your big ring if you go this route...DRS retains the smaller two rings and replaces the big ring with a bashguard. Since you say you never use your small ring, the DRS doesn't make much sense for you.

I thought the DRS could fit 2 rings regardless of which they were?

That may be true, but the bolt pattern for the inner ring is smaller, so you are limited in the size of that ring. Depending on your bike, chainstay clearance issues may also be a factor...most low chainstay bikes can't fit much more than a 38T in the middle ring position.
