It's my current DH bike. I think I'm going to part it however and just have a single bike.

Just because it's needful doesn't mean it has to be dangerous. Making it wide enough to straight line it and putting a rough surface on it would've been more then enough to make it safe.

I really don't believe the drag is that noticeable, if at all. A lower pulley which introduces that much additional needed effort would never be considered a good design in the first place. I agree with ctd07 here. And I'm irked by "As a Narrow Wide ring wears, over time the teeth thin and loose their chain retention ability, leading to more dropped chains". Seriously! How does a narrow wide work if not by introducing a little drag to facilitate retention? Isn't that what the purveyors squawk about with a lower pulley / tensioner setup? That said, I'll just keep a normal chain ring and guide/tensioner as opposed to being a guinea pig for the industry.
