    Dual ring chain guides

    Which dual ring chain guide should I get: ethirteen drs oe black spire chain tensioner. I already have a nice bash gaurd (raceface evolve),but I have a bike in need of a new bash gaurd. It would be nice to know that I could save $100 with the spire. Its going on a faith. Ultimately, which is going to be the smoothest for shifting, provide the least resistance and keep the chain on the best?
    If it works...... do it!

    e13...never drop a chain and never have problems shifting. Very simple design yet very effective.

    Since you'd pay nearly the same price for either, the e.thirteen DRS is by far the better choice.

    I use MRP personally, but I'd go with the e.thirteen if I were to go dual chainring. I have never heard one complaint about them, and there are LOTS of people running them.

    I am not totally sure the Evolve bashring will work with the DRS, you may have to keep the supercharger with the guide.

    I got the black spire today and mounted it. I can't hear it, and I can't feel any resistance. It was super easy to set up. and I havn't been able to drop a chain or slip off one of the sprockets (pedling backwards, bunnyhopping, drops, anything!). This has already exceeded my expectations (and it looks nice and clean aswell.
    If it works...... do it!

    With the stinger, you just have to have the isgc (not sure of order) tabs on you frame and it works. It doesn't come with a bash gaurd. I looked at their dualie, and it came in eith 5 or 4 bolt (I assume you are talking about the cranks), so to answer your question, no.
    If it works...... do it!
