Love your build, definitely not the cheap route tho.! I have a Trance Advanced SX as well. Been thinking about getting Derbys. Did you ride yours with the stock wheels first? Curious about the difference in stiffness, wheel performance? Any complaints about the Derby wheels? If I had more disposable income: BOS Deville fork, CCDBA or BOS Kirk Shock, Derby Rims, Next cranks, Hope brakes, Reverb Stealth 150...

Again, thanks "mrpowerjd". As you can see, I wasn't fully up to speed on the latest in bike tech, haven't had a bike for a few years. Old style bash rings make no sense if you can attach (ISCG). Thought I'd mention that Truvativ (with help from MRP) now has one too. It's the Truvativ "X0 Chain Guide". The Truvatic comes in 32-36T (and 36-40T) where the others are available in 28-32T. Now I'm wondering if I would notice the tiny loss in clearance using a 32-36T or if it would actually be even better to have that little extra protection...? I may still get the MRP AMG or Blackspire TrailX, will compare pricing, details... but thought I'd share. It seems mandatory to get protection on a 1x setup!

@ mrpowerjd. Thanks for the info. How tough are these compared to a bashguard? Are you running XO1 1x11 with an MRP? If so, XCG or AMG? Pros, cons, preferences? Does this drivetrain really need an AMG (top chain guide)? My bike is a Giant Trance Advanced SX.

" I just hope SRAM (Truvativ...) or whoever releases some bashguard options really soon. I could see some of the other companies being reluctant to make bashguards to protect the competition's new (and competing) drivetrain. It should have been done and released at the same time IMO."

Or maybe I'm wrong and they see an opportunity to sell a bunch of bashguards and advertise their brand at the same time? Raceface, Hope, Chromag....anyone stepping up? We need a 94 BCD 32T (maybe 30T, 34T options..too) that fits on X01 Crank. Let's not waste resources by destroying chain rings and drivetrains unnecessarily!

Cool to see new ideas and innovation, keep it up. I likely wouldn't feel the need to change out a perfectly good drive train, but if I were buying a new bike or my drive train was worn out...awesome. Funny how some comments come across so negative about it. I appreciate the review and look forward to trying mine. It was onef the deciding factors when I chose my new bike. Felt really nice on my 2 minute test ride outside the shop. Love the simplicity of no front derailleur, 1 shifter, more clearance, reduced chain slap/drop... A couple of friends got X01 1x11 last fall and love it, no complaints. Most likely something new and better will come out before I'm ready to change mine, but that's OK. Now I just need to find a 94 BCD Bash Guard. Sure they're coming soon, but so far the only one I have seen is a Carbon Fiber one, and it's over $100. Anyone seen or know of something else in the works? I'd like to install right away before taking a hit, this stuff is a little on the expensive side.
