What do people recommend for a carbon chain guide ? I want to run 1x10 with a 30t chainring.

Used Experimental Prototype on my Flash. Worked perfect and really light.

Nice, but a DuraAce FD with carbon clamp would be more than 10 grams lighter.

A quick thread hijack, Ive been using a single front ring with a similar chain device, it has perfomed faultlessly for over 6 months.

But a few months ago I messed around with it and adjusted the height of the guide, now the chain comes off ever so often, nearly ever ride. I cant determine why it comes off. Has anyone got any dimensions or photos of what dimensions or at what angle the device should be in conjunction with the chain ring?

Cheers

Maybe adjust the rear derailleur tension ? Don't know...

This chain guide would be for a Scott Spark Ltd..
