Not an expensive option to running a single ring, dont have to buy a whole xx1 or xx0 set up to run a single ring without a chain guide!
Need to make sure that the chain is tensioned properly otherwise losing a chain will occurOverall Review: I was very impressed with my Raceface narrow wide chainring. I purchased a 32 with hopes to upgrade to a 34 once i started pedalling a bit more. Stupidly I didn't re tension the chain after switching from a 2x setup, I used a roller to keep the chain more tensioned and it held up well, I lost a chain twice without it properly tensioned. Once realizing that I needed to take a few links out of the chain, I was never able to lose a chain. Considering if you want to run a true 1x setup with no chainring you need to buy a sram xx1 or xx0 setup I was much happier paying the 40 bucks to get this, rather then the grand+ to get the sram setup!
