Is anyone running a straightline silent guide on the last-gen demo (2016-2019)?

My cranks sometimes felt like they were getting stuck in place last time i rode. Not consistently. Makes me think there’s something odd going on between the guide and the chain as it goes through the travel.

Had that feeling when the guide wheel bearing wore out on lg chainguide (Felt like the chain couldn't move freely and got 'stuck'). Ended up just removing the lower guide completely. Beer (It actually feel's a lot nicer without the added friction and the amount of teeth the chain contacts is less so naturally is smoother and takes less energy to pedal)

However you might be more hardcore rider and need one.. Eek Altho haven't had a chain drop in like.. 3 years Fab

Thanks CarolineHix, I’ll go back to a guide with the lower idler. My chain falls off even with the Silent Guide

Rolleyes Removed rear shock from bike today (just for the hell of it..) actually it's making horrible dying pig sound's.
I haven't ridden it in a long time and have a new bike so why not eh. Beer

Just thought i would take a few photo's (Again.. no real reason but maybe helpful one day lol)
Facepalm like all thing's.. it was surprisingly easy to remove.. Bit fiddly to reinstall but not too bad.

Does anyone know if there is any chance of the 2022 demo 29 to run a high pivot? I am about to buy a demo 29 but don’t want to buy it yet if there is a high pivot around the corner!

I would think no, as Bruni was testing it, and, as we saw last week, hi was on current version.
But i might be wrong. Smile please share if you know more.

Bruni is on the current version yes but the high pivot Demo was more of a test mule, I think for 2022 the Demo will remain the same,If they go High Pivot they need to re-design the whole frame from scratch with new kinemetic's etc.

Question: I Have a long time friend just getting into riding bike parks.Shopping around for a demo 8(last version/not newest). He is 6,3! go for a large or x-large? Mostly bike park riding.

Go XL, it's not a big XL compared most brands XL's these days.

Posted: Sep 19, 2021 at 21:21 Quote
the XL is only 460mm reach, at 6'1 it was too small for me.

I´m 6,1 aka 1,85m and the XL carbon Demo fits perfect! In my opinion you do not necessarily have to follow the trend to extremely long reach values and certainly not if you want to have fun in the bike park. But it should also not be smaller, so XL with a 50mm stem.
