|a weightweenie buddy over in the save-some-weight-forum on mtbr.com. just search for "Ty chainguide" and you'll come across several pictures etc.
I built this one from a DMR chainguide clamp. i originally tuned the DMR chainguide (check my post some threads below) but then i simplyfied it to what it looks now. the two plates are coins from hungary. in between those coins there's a plastic tube, the transparent rubber tube is enough flexible to adjust the chainline. e-mail me for further Qs and pictures, if you like.
so far it has never ever let me down. i will also shorten the chain a bit, but i have to keep it long enough to mount a 42 t ring........ just in case
did i mention that this guide weighs almost nothing? :-)
