It looks like Kona doesn’t have the three bolt pattern chain tensioner mount (I don’t know what it is called). So what are you using, how much for one, where are you getting them, and do they effect ride quality? Thanks.

ISCG mounts. You can use any chainguide with a bottom bracket flange mount. I use a MRP Long Range Patrol even though I only run a single ring setup.

I've been using a E13 DRS on my 04 coiler. No complaints at all! You know have a great product when you never have to worry about weather or not its working and that's what I have with the DRS

Chain guides.

I've got a MRP LRP setup and it's worked great for me. I've had to pull it off a couple of times to straighten it after bashing directly into rocks, but that would've happened with any chain guide.

The other good option is the e-thirteen DRS.

I use a MRP system 1 slalom, great design, durable, and quiet. I have had it on three bikes now, still going strong. Here is my ride.

I've got the E-13 DRS on my 04 Stinky. No complains here. Works like a charm and I'm running 22-36. All good.
