Do these 9 speed guides strike anyone else as being... somewhat dumb?
e.thirteen and MRP seem to has both hit the market at the exact same time with these, so i gotta assume there's demand and more similar devices on the market. My experience has been that a FD or FD style device only works if the chain has a small ring to fall on to, and a jumpstop/bash works fine so long as you're not bashing through rock gardens fast enough or do weird ratcheting moves. Otherwise, you need an idler.
Seems like a device that would only be the best option for a slow-descending bashie-eschewing weight-weenie 9-speeder.
Tell me that i'm wrong. :thumbsup:
