I've decided to go from my 36/46 chainrings to a single 38 tooth rotor q ring. I've wanted to try out 1x10 and q rings for a while, I figured I'd do both at once. I have an n gear jump stop to use on the inside. What would you recommend for the outside? Would I be fine just using my old 46 tooth chainring as a guard? Should I get one of those BBG bashguards? If so, what size?

Thanks everybody

Me, I use a 46t on the outside so that I can also have a double ring set-up for my commutes. I have two separate chains sized accordingly: 38t and 46t/38t. I switch out chains for races/commuting.

I run a 40t rotor ring. I started with an N-gear but had my chain come off too often so I switched to dual 42t carbon guards. Also the thinnest BBG's will bend if you hit a barrier hard. If you find that 40t guards keep your chain on I'd like to know.

I run a 42t Rotor with a N Jump and a FSA carbon outer guard.
I think I'm going to go to a 40t...age is taking a toll on the legs :^(
Never had it come off in many seasons.
If you have you chain length correct...your chain shouldn't come off.

Am in the same boat, currently run a 38/46 Q-ring set up.
Going to try just the single 38 with one of these:

Use a similar setup on the MTB and it works like a dream.

Will post images once done

I ran a sinlge for a year and went back to the double. I found the single was good for about 1/5 of the courses i rode.

I run q rings and really can't picture going back. But when i ran a single it was a reg. ring. A single q ring set up would be intresting. I would go 42 at the smallest. With the new 11-28 cassettes there is nothing that you could not handle. If it is too hard for a 42-28 then it is faster to run anyways.

Any reports back for Q-ring for cyclocross? I bought a partially built bike with them on there. I can't say I love them for high cadence, but think they would work great for grunty CX stuff so was thinking of swapping them onto the CX bike which has a bent outer ring at this point anways.

This is interesting and relevant...

Here's an image from Christopher Sausser's Leadville bike (credit Velonews: Caley Fretz). Rotor q-ring, 104bcd, non-round with xx1 tooth profiles... If true, rotor may have some 110 or 130bcd rings in the pipeline. No guard or guide needed!

If you check out velotechservices they have XX style thick thin rings in stock now.
