    Strengths:    adjustable for different chain rings, also the big downfall, not sure if it is worth the downside.

    Weaknesses:    the product

    Bottom Line:   
    they made the thing adjustable so you would only have to buy one guide for many different size rings, but thats what makes it so weak. they bevel the back plate for all the different mounting options and that cut the strength in half. i broke mine no joke the third ride i went on with it. dont wast your money on this, just give your money to me and ill give you my broken one, cause thats what you will end up with any way.

    2 chilis for thinking about adjustability

    mr dirt, buy it

    Strengths:    Easy to fit and set up, keeps the chain on

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    Got this for christmas, had it on and set up in half an hour, it really is so easy. Took it out today on a really bumpy trail where I couldn't even stay on the pedals, and the chain didn't drop once. Does make a bit of noise, but if you can hear that then you aren't going fast enough.

    Strengths:    none

    Weaknesses:    Very weak design. the rollers are held on by tiny weak screws that will either back out (even with locktite), and or simply snap off. Does not keep chain on nearly as well as a mrp or other device. Overall it is a waste of time and money trying to keep it working.

    Bottom Line:   
    no go

    Strengths:    the chain won't fall. The roller are on bearing.

    Weaknesses:    It can't be adjust the way a chainguide is suppose to be. It makes a lot of noise and the roller are in hard plastic.

    Bottom Line:   
    A great chainguide if you like to hear noises and when you like to change a lot of rollers.
