MRP 1.X chain guide
« on: February 13, 2010, 09:24:22 AM »
Just installed it... looks pretty impossible to be able to drop a chain with it.  We'll see how it does in the real world.  58 grams.

Did a short one at Flatwoods last Sunday... wouldn't call it a "comeback" though...it was slow and a comedy of handling errors. Will hit it again tomorrow.

Claimed weight is 58 grams, I'm not a real weight weenie so I didn't check the actual weight, felt really light.

Looks good. I'll have to do that someday as I only ever use my middle chainring.
