    “Superior Chainguide / Bash guard”

    The Good: Strong, light weight, quiet, looks legit

    The Bad: Had to by extra rubber guides to get the color I wanted

    Overall Review:

    I have been searching for a chain guide bash gaurd combo that works well for a while now. They either fit poorly, sound horrible, are too bulky, or just look like junk. The Straitline really caught my eye and from the second I got it and put it on I knew I had made a great purchase. ebikestop.com had it on sale. After riding with it I have no complaints only praise for this great piece of engineering. It is such a simple design and just looks and functions so well. I highly recommend purchasing one. If you have Saint cranks you will need to get the one that is set up for saint cranks.

    “best chain guide I have ever used”

    The Good: silent and reliable.

    The Bad: maybe a little bit heavy due to the aluminum bash ring, this is not a negative for me.

    Overall Review:

    The name says it all. This guide is in fact silent, I have been using it all season and have yet to have a problem.  The chain stays on , and the best part is there is no roller bearing to go bad.

    some people may feel it is too heavy due to the aluminum bash ring. This is not a negative for me , I have a habit of breaking taco style guides, this guide is rock solid.

    “Straitline Silent Guide”

    The Good: the good: reliable, no maintenance needed ,and the most resistant i have ever used

    The Bad: the only thing that could be better its the price ,but by the fact that you praticly don't need to change nothing because it wont break it's worth the price .

    Overall Review:

    i used to have an e.13 LG1+ and i braeck the taco and it had 1 or 2 cracks on the upper side, this one i have landed with the chain ring on rocks and it didn't break, its like new

    the best guide ever and i don't want to change it for an other.

    “Best Chain Guide Ever!”

    The Good: Super quite clean awesome look no problems in any weather!

    The Bad: the setup guide it comes with is not the proper way to set it up, make sure when you install it both top and bottom sliders touch the chain to ensure the silent effect and runs as smooth as possible

    Overall Review:

    Best guide ever silent, andreliable tired many guides and this one works the best I love it you need it!

    “Best chain guide bar none”

    The Good: Super easy to set up unlike other guide that take a lot of tweaking to get right. Never dropped a chain or had any issues even in heavy mud. No rollers to get clogged

    The Bad: The only negative i can think of is it only comes stock with green roller. But that's no big deal

    Overall Review: I've used MRP and multiple e-thirteens and this trumps them all
