Single-ring drivetrains are no longer just found on gravity bikes. Riders who desire the simplicity and dependability of a single-ring drivetrain but require compact front gearing for truly exploring all of the mountain now have a dedicated guide – the Micro Guide. With recent advances in 10 and 11 speed gearing, it’s now possible to get a wide range of gearing while using just a single, compact chainring and the Micro Guide. Designed for 28-32t chainrings and incorporating MRP’s patented integrated skid, the Micro is a blessing for aggressive all-mountain and 29″ riders who were previously unwilling to give up a “low” gear. The modular skid design of the Micro allows the user to remove it when deemed unnecessary for the terrain, but retain the lower chain retention function of the guide. Featuring captive slider nuts in the backplate and new retained and pivoting upper guide, installation of the Micro Guide is a frustration-free process.
