    What are you talking aboutttttttttttttttt , if you replace the derailleur than you can't possible do your granny to your ninth cog....BECAUSE YOU WOULDENT HAVE A DERAILLEUR OR MORE THAN 1 COG.

    i know what you're talking about. it replaces your front derailleur and it only pushes the chain from one side. i think i've seen it but i can't remember where...

    i remember it looking like a derailleur. it's just a flat piece that rests next to the teeth right?

    he said 1x9 which woudl refer to him wanting a chaing guide, RESEARCH GOES A LONG WAY
    "I'm; young enough to know the right car to buy yet grown enough not to put rims on it. I got that 6-deuce, with curtains, so you can't see me and I didn't even have to put tints on it."

    A simple "your wrong" would have been just fine. I think I'm going to go curl up in a ball and cry in the corner.

    Now can I possibly explain what was going through my head at the time, with out being critisized? Well probaly not but i'll say it anyways for John amusment.

    I was thinking that 1x9 was refering to that he was running his chain in the smallest ring up front (granny) and the 9th cog in the rear.

    Well whatever I hope I was able to amuse everyone
    I need a hug

    The N-gear Jump Stop works very well, especially paired up with some sort of outer bashring, and a non-ramped ring up front. Works better on a hardtail, and squishy bikes with <4" travel from what I've seen. More travel than that, or a suspension design with a lot of chain growth would be better suited to a full on chain guide like the e-13 stuff.

    I've run one off and on for a few years now, and never had any issues with the thing.

    Link to a thread with plenty of 1x9 options:
