Pretty cool.  Does it rub at all on the inner ring when you shift the rear up into the larger cogs?

No it seems to some how stay off the inner guide fairly well. The ring bolts to the granny bolts, and has a little offset so it actually sits  between the granny and middle ring spot. It has a straighter chain line in the larger cogs, than the smaller. The only draw back ive seen so far is the blue guides are thin, and since you are unable to attach a bash ring it could get banged up pretty good. The maker of the ring suggest taking 4 links out of the chain (if you coming from a triple ring set-up). i was already running a 1x9 with a 32t  so i only took 2 out it shifts fast and accurately. i went for a quick spin this morning and tried my hardest to bounce the chain off and couldn't . I'm going to put it through the paces this weekend and ill report back.
