I designed my own chain guide and got the thing working pretty well! Now that it's ready, here's one of the least expensive chain guides, and it's made here in the US! Each guide is 3D printed from biodegradable PLA, and assembled to order.
It was designed and tested on a 1x11 setup with the clutch disabled and I'm pleased to say it only drops on very chunky DH terrain, and even that is very rare. This is due to an extra large guide wheel that uses oversized skateboard bearings. Furthermore, it's put together with standard metric hardware. All the parts are standard, and if you somehow break them, I'll replace the parts at cost.
Now I'm usually selling black ones, but if you want I'll customize the colors. You can get the pulley/spacers and body in a distinct color. No charge, though it might have a little lead time for me to cobble together.
1. Unlink chain, and thread through chain guide. Note that the teeth have alternating widths, and the chain should be mounted accordingly. Reconnect chain ends. Ensure chain length is still adequate for gear range. A new chain is recommended.
2. Wrap included tape around chainstay, a few inches from your chainring.
3. Use zipties to attach chainguide to taped area.
4. Tighten zipties with pliers until they sink into the tape slightly. This will keep the guide from sliding forward or backwards.
5. Shorten the chain appropriately, if necessary.
6. Cut zip tie excess length.
Free shipping in the continental US.
I also sell them through ebay, shouldn't be hard to find.
