I tried 1x9 setup.... If you drop your chain you're effed! no amount of pedaling will bring it back on.
I went back to 2x9 and haven't looked back.

Running an MRP on my 1x9 race mountainbike and 1x9 salsa chainguard with an Ngear jump stop on my Cyclocross bike and I like the set up on the cross bike way better. Had a fricken rock jam in my MRP guide and derail my chain. Had to remove the guide just to put the chain back on. It also gets a little wonky when you back pedal. Personally feel there is room for improvement on the MRP and e13 guides.

fair point, but rocks are more than likely not going to be an issue in UK 'cross races. still think this type of guide is a better otion of a stop and a gaurd.......

Found out the clamp on MRP is in production, should be about a month! now to pick what size ring to go with a 11-28 cassette? 38 or a 40 i think, what size do most Single ring riders use?

I was thinking a 42T with a 11-28 cassette personally... I may stick with a 2x10 as I use my cross bike for some dirt road training rides though.

I have the clamp on paul's chain keeper, not the bottom bracket one, on my cross bike. It is a pain to setup just right but once you get it adjusted just right it works great. I am really picky about noises so I was a little anal about getting set up.

My wife's Cross bike has a Salsa Crossing guard and a jump stop and that also works well and is a lot easier to setup.
