I have a DRS (dual ring chainguide) and want to use a 22-36 or 22-38 up front...will this be ok? I read somewhere that there is a 10 tooth limit between gears, but not sure if I believe this as I have a bike that is 22-32-44. I will be using an XTR front deraileur.

Thanks.

OK for me

I'm running the Evil DRS with a 36-22 combo. Works fine on my RFX with old (95') XTR front der. I'm using the smaller size bash guard, just covers the 36, you'd need the larger size that comes with the DRS to cover the 38 or bigger.

Shimano says 12t (14t on the double road). You can probably swing 14t, but 16t may be too much. I say keep the 22t and try a 36t.
