Strength:

none..... but it looks cool

Weakness:

everything. needs constant adjustment I use locktite and tourqe the hell out of it it moves around every few rides

DONT BUY IT......... THE E.THIRTEEN IS HASSLE FREE. THE PROBLEM OCCURS WHEN YOU TAKE BIG DROPS AND THE CHAIN PUSHES UP ON THE BOX AND ITS PLASTIC SO EAVEN WITH IT REAL REAL REAL TIGHT IT EVENTUALY MOVES AND AFTER THE THIRD TIME THE CHAIN WILL FALL OFF AND THEN BREAK OUT THE TOOLS CAUSE THATS THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE CHAIN BACK IN THE BOX.

Strength:

Keeps chain on

Weakness:

Crappy Plastic Top, Bottom pulley too far to right - experience a lot of rub

Heavy, Noisy, Don't Buy - Probably going to custom grind it to make bash fit better and may grind down to make less heavy.

Strength:

My chain has never fallen off. Light.

Weakness:

not the best out there. Doesnt allow e13 bashguard.

I have been using it for the last 3 months with no problem. My bike came with a 38 tooth chain ring and it worked with that. I ended up switching to a 32 tooth to be able to do some climbing and it works fine with that too. If it didnt come on the bike i would probably go with e13, especially because i cant run a bashguard with it. Its not terrible, but not amazing.

Strength:

It's still keeps my chain in posision about 3 months and if you adjust it good and put some teflon on the axle of the rockring it's quite

Weakness:

So the rockring is nosy but if i put there a teflon from finish line its quiet but it's when i put it on the chain scrabs the one side of the top pice next today my chain fell down and in this tipe of chain guides with a chamber its hard to put it back (chain)

It's good for begginers

Strength:

the lower roller never had any problems keeps the chain tight, it indure abuse and its simple

Weakness:

the chaine guide itself, its just plain crap it keeps getting loose, it dosent hold the chain very well unless u spend a while adjusting it but as soon as as u ride in rough terrain its gets loose and the chaine falls off so if ur sprinting its gonna hurt and dont even think about putting a bashgard because you have to take off the side of thye chaine guide and if u do that u might as well take it off.

if u are just looking for the lower part then go and buy it it dosent get much better than that but if u need the whole thing or just the chainbox then go look somewhere else like mrp or e-13

Strength:

Works very very well, sets up perfectly if you just follow the directions. Light in weight, very well built, adjustable for any chainline/chainring size between like 32 / 44t. Great flexibility, fits pretty much any frame configuration.
Team version with the sealed bearing jockey wheel has the lowest resistance of any chain device I have used so far, you really don't know it's there when you're pedaling, however the chain NEVER comes off.
Cheap - about half the price of MRP or E13, and works at least as well, if not better.. won't go back to either of those again.

Weakness:

None, does exactly what it is supposed to.

It's a great product. Be sure you get the team version which uses a high quality sealed bearing on the jockey wheel.
I honestly don't know how some of these people are saying it's hard to set up. If you follow the directions exactly (not rocket science BTW), it sets up correctly the first time. Just use Loc-Tite on the bolts, and it's going to run trouble free.
Great set and forget chain guide. I haven't had to touch it since I installed. takes maybe 20 mins to set up properly if you take your time and double check everything. No complaints at all.

Strength:

better than nothing

Weakness:

doesnt hold chain on very well, top piece gets chewed up easily

this is good, but for some reason the chain has fallen off many times, and is hard to get back on. other than that, the guide does its job well.

Strength:

the chain has only come off my bike once. it tensions the chain a little, so it isnt bouncing around all the time.

Weakness:

really niosy. and it also rubs against your chain, makeing more of an effort to pedal

i'm not sure I would reccommend it. get the hussefelt or something. because this thing is just really noisy and clunky. never givin me any problems though.
