|It started with my commuter bike: just riding on a single, 42-tooth chainring. I like not using the left shifter and have all the gears I need so I went to one ring on my other road bike. The only problem: I drop the chain to the outside when I move to the smallest 2 or 3 cogs (8 speed setup). I can keep this from happening by keeping the front derailler on as a chain guard, but I would like to remove it to save the weight and enjoy the look. Any thoughts on how to run one ring, ditch the front der, and keep the chain on?|

|sets that come with new bolts, inner and outer guards, and you will be set.
Is a good place to start.

|If the required distance isn't not too much (~1mm). You could try adding some spacers (shims actually) between the chainring and the spider, thereby increasing your chain line.|| |
