im not sure if i should keep 2 chainrings on my bike or if i should get rid of one and get a chainguide. i know i can get one for 2 chainrings but i wouldnt want to. im just not sure if i would have a good enough range of gears because i do somedownhilling and i also do freeriding where i have to pedal around trails.

I am in a similar position, I ride pretty much everything on my DH bike so I make use of the two chainrings. I have decided to spring for a E13 DRS, I don't think you'd have any problem with ranges of gears if you do too. However, if it were between the keeping the two rings & bashguard vs. sacrificing one ring for the single ring guide, I'd say keep the two rings and save yourself some cash. THough I suppose it all depends on your style of riding.

You can always put a bigger chainwheel on too. Your gear ratio may be wider than what's recommended by the shifter companies, but it'd probably still work.
