Single Ring Setup(1 post)

Single Ring SetupLove2du

I just wanted to pass along my single ring setup that works very well. First I am only using one chain guard on the outside of the crank. The reason for this is because I wanted to maintain proper chain-line. I am using a 113 ISIS BB(race face signiture ti, which allows for some room to adjuct chain line) with a 44chainring. After having my chain fall off a few times in races I decided to put an XT front derl. on to keep the chain in place. Wow! Did that solve the problem of the chain coming off. I noticed that the chain would jump off the the chainring on the top part of the chainring so the XT der. not only prevents it from jumping up, but also from falling off on the inside. I mounted the der. very close to the chain so there would be no way the chain could get between the chainring and the der. Hope this helps and if you need any help on this issue of a single ring setup just let me know. Now get out there and ride.
