I have had a mrp world cup for the past year or so and i beat the crap out of it. the thing that holds the roller on is almost worn through from the chain rubbing on it. I need a nice strong thick chain guide that wont bend or break. my only thoughts where the mrp bones... any ideas? thanks

dinger, mrp sucks
Do you have any valid reasoning for that?

If your chain was rubbing then it obviously wasn't adjusted properly.

I've had 2 mrp's that I beat the crap out of and have had nothing but good luck.

The difference with the MRP Bones is that the cranks are made of chromoly. I believe the rest of the system is the same as the other MRP systems, except it is black. I've had nothing but good luck with MRP
:D

Those are some pretty sweet chain guides. The "roller" part of it looks a lot stronger than mrp, but also like it might have some problems shedding mud or getting rocks stuck in it. any problems with that? Lexan bash guard is awesome! i doubt i will ever be able to break it and theres no way to bend it

The MRP is lousy for shedding mud and gets mud, rocks and sticks in between the sprocket and inner and outer bash rings when riding in muddy conds.. The Evil doesn't have a fully round inner bash like the MRP just the boomerang. Seems the evil would be easier to clean out with a hose between runs.

e.13 gets my vote, Great Cust. Serv.!!!!

Jonas @ e.13 will take care of you if you have a prob. My e.13 DRS was a'lil finiky but Jonas & binary visions, (mtbr members), walked me through it & got me straightened out. e.13 DRS doesn't get rocks, sticks or mud packed in it. It's been great. Very quiet too. Killer rubber roller. Initially it may be a'lil pricey, but the cust. serv. is worth it. It would be nice if the other companies would crawl out from under their rocks & cowboy up the way e.13 does when someone has a prob. ;) :p :D :cool:

Blackspire

I've been using Blackspire chain guides for the last two years. They are excellent. If you compare them side-by-side with an MRP, the Blackspire is much much thicker and a lot tougher. I always have some serious skid marks on the bottom of the inner plate, but haven't bent or broken a thing on them.

The E-13 chainguides are also sweet, but that lexan ring feels like it is made of lead -- I'd guess 2-3x heavier than the Blackspire. Now if they still said "EVIL" on them and had that flaming skull, I would own one. Can't go wrong with either the E-13 or Blackspire.
