Just wondering how many people out there are running a single chain ring and chain guide on their Hecklers??
Is this a bit of overkill? does it defeat the purpose of having a Heckler?
if you are, what combo are you running?
Cheers,

I run 1X9 with an Ngear chain stop. It works great for everything I do. That would include fast rides with drops about 3-4 feet. I never had a problem and it doesn't weigh anything. I ride an SS as well and after riding an SS, a 1X9 is cake.

1X8 here - I too ride a singlespeed and after that 1X8 is no problem.



34T ring with simple home-fettled chain device (DMR Chain Reactor spare roller bolted to DMR hinged clamp) - does the job.

No chain guide, just a 32t Surly SS ring up front with a bash guard.

Tempted to try that set up myself but interested to know if the chain ever falls off inboard.
