Date Reviewed: January 27, 2010

Strengths:    Sleek, strong, and functional. I ran this guide for an entire season and never once dropped a chain. I've knocked the bash guard pretty good a couple of times as well with absolutely zero complaints.

Weaknesses:    admittedly, its not as quiet as some, but in a world with hubs as loud as hadleys, kings and ringles... Who cares?

Bottom Line:   
This guide is worth every single penny. It compares directly with the E13 LG1 for functionality and performance. Some will say it's more expensive than the competition, but the G2 comes with the "taco" bashguard where the competition doesn't. I ran this guide an entire season without ever once losing my chain, which puts the G2 in the good books for me. The only R&D MRp needs to make is into shaving weight. Beautiful guide. I'd buy one again.

Strengths:    Great chain retention, I liek how the bash covers the lower roller, light, just a plain good product Sheds mud well

Weaknesses:    Noen to date and I've put mine through loads already!

Bottom Line:   
I've pretty mush put this guide through everything possible, Ive crashed, ridden on fast pedally courses btu also extremely tech courses, in the mud and overall it just blew my expectations away. I much prefer this guide to the LG!.

best feature is the bash guard that covers the lower pulley!
Best direct mount guide on the market

Date Reviewed: September 29, 2008

Strengths:    Light weight
Keeps the chain on the ring


Weaknesses:    Loud. Getting a lot of chain slap on the derailleur style guide

Bottom Line:   
Overall a great guide. It's light weight and keeps the chain on the ring. I haven't lost a chain yet. My only complaint is the chain slap on the derailleur style upper guide. It's incredibly annoying and loud. I'm going to look at either putting some noise reducing material on the guide or retro fitting a guide pulley to increase the tension on the chain and keep it from flopping around.

Granted, the chain slap could be a result of the frame design.

G2 vs. Non-G2 Fork

I recently switched my Trek Hifi (Superfly) from a G2 fork to a non-G2 fork. Both 100mm Fox RLC. The G2 fork is a 2008 F29 100mm RLC with 9mm axle. It has been ridden hard all these years and serviced occasionally. It had recently been serviced and seemed to function well, but I always felt th ... Read More »

If I cut down bars on a G2 bike will it spoil handling/comfort?

I have just purchased a Trek Cobia 2013 and the difference between it and my previous 26in hardtail is stunning.
