You only need one ring if you have a nine speed cassete in the back. I have an evil single ring chainguide and it works well for the uphills with a 36 tooth middle ring.

Just installed an e13 DRS on my BigHit Comp. Took a bit of playing, but went on perfectly, works great, and I think it will be impossible to drop the chain with this setup. I'm going to run a 26/36 combo as soon as my LBS can get the rings. That should be a great combo for the moderate DH runs around here and all the trailriding I do. If I could actually get the 28/38 rings Truvativ sells, that would be even better, but no one around here can get them.

I have the LRP on my Scream. It works pretty well. No dropped chains after numerous drops to flat. Nothing really gone wrong. I havent had any DH practice on it yet though, but it's quiet :)

I couldn't get it to work with my Big Hit DH. The ISCG mounts didn't line up properly. I tried using the BB cup, but part of the guide seemed to want to hit the chain stay. In the end I didn't use the DRS, which turned out to be OK as I never had a problem with the Big Hit dropping the chain (chain line is awesome).
