    Strengths:    good looks, solid design, chain will not fall off.

    Weaknesses:    hard installation

    Bottom Line:   
    I know all about the chain coming off as the guides i have used in the past have had this happen alot, this guide is middle priced for top end performance...BUY this device it will amaze you or i will give you your money back.

    Strengths:    Build quality, job performance, longevity

    Weaknesses:    Anodizing has discolored a little.

    Bottom Line:   
    If you're dropping the chain with this thing, you installed it incorrectly. I haven't droped the chain once in a full year of using this thing every single week. I haven't done anything to it besides clean and lube and it still works as it did from day one. It makes noise in certain gears, but you can minimize that with slight adjustments.

    Strengths:    Hold the chain on really well once set up. Looks pimp as hell in gold and black. Really strong, i laned one footed on top of mine and it was still set up!

    Weaknesses:    Takes ages to get it set up if your chain line isn't good, the chain sometimes rattles between the plates in the top guide which is annoying.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is a good quality chain device that is worth buying. I think it is expensive, but then again I'm tight and MRPs do cost over half as much again. Oh by the way do not over tighten the grub screws because they dig deep into alloy frames without you even realising! Buy it....

    Strengths:    it works well, quiet, strong, pritty good chain line

    Weaknesses:    i bought this product used. Guy who selled this to me had intense M1 bike and he told me that lower rolls hitt ground when he land jumps. Thats why he is selling it. So dont know how well this product will work in long travel rear suspension bikes. i ride hardtail bike and i find little dificulties to assembly this product. I use 36´ chan ring and i had to put some spacer rings (?) betveen lower "arm" whit out those lower arm would hit my cranckset. Even now clearance betveen crancks and roller cage is just 1-2mm. If i ad spacer rings, lower arm would stick in my 2,5 jumbo tire.

    Bottom Line:   
    expencive = go for used one ! Good product after all. i have never lost a chain, it take some time to find right settings.

    Strengths:    Wow, a chainguide with a decent design! Strong, Light, and won't mess your chain flow

    Weaknesses:    Tricky installation, but hey that's me

    Bottom Line:   
    I've found that most products from Roox are High quality and actually work when put on something other than a computer synthesis like other companies likely do. If you can get this or the other RooXies it's well worth. You can't break it, It's no that heavy to haul up hills, and the infamous Fuel Chainsuck hasn't occured since. Thanks Roox
