    Chainguides - What's the deal?

    Hey,

    I'm wondering...do ethirteen chain guides have rollers? If not, isn't the chain eventually going to wear through the plastic? Also, for MRP chainguides, are they just disliked sometimes because they have the really thin and not-so-bashable bashguard?

    yeah it's a small plastic chain ring with a bearing in the middle on the bottom and no roller up top and i must say it works amazingly

    Don't hate, hoolie. MRP's have more world cup championships than any oversized, clunky looking, double secret formula PLASTIC bashring.
