is there a chain guide out there that lets you run all 3 gears at the front? i have seen some that let you use 2 but thats it
When i die I just hope the wife doesn't sell my stuff for what I told her I paid for it other wise someone will be getting a mega deal!!!

    Yes. But not all will work with all bikes and not all work very well. Most people tend to chose their gears so the chain does not unship.

    What are you trying to do?

    Have a look at the Bionicon V2.

    Works with 3 chainrings. I have recently fitted one to my Trance and it works flawlessly. Went round the Beast at coed-y-brenin without any issues. Didn't notice any resistance and was nice and quiet. You can get them from ebay Germany or e-mail the Bionicon uk rep who will supply you one. Mine cost £40 delivered from ebay Germany.
    If at first you don't succeed, spend some more money on kit!

    Its just a rear reflector mount cable tied to the rear mech cable, and i heat shrunk some harder wearing plastic into the bit the chain sits on to reduce noise and wear. Never dropped my chain since!

    When it does wear, its just the price of a rear reflector to replace.
