    Anyone have suggestions for a chain guide for a 2x11 Shimano XT?

    MRP 2x says 2x9/10 but not 11.
    BlackSpire Twinty the same.

    Can't seem to find anyone with 11 speed compatibility :frown:

    Prolly coz with a front Mech and clutched rear Mech of modern 11 speed drive trains, the chances of losing a chain is miniscule?

    Fear not tho, I would place a large gamble on the fact that if a 2x guide suits a 10 speed set up.... it would be 99.9% suitable for an 11 speed set up.

    What about one of the Bionicon or Specialized chainstay tensioners?

    I ran the Syntace one on my Liteville 2x10. I never used the clutch and never lost a chain.

    This is for my wife's bike. She has managed to drop the chain a few times & I'm sick of prising it out from the BB :eek::eek:
    (The drive-train is tuned & OK and it does have a clutch!)

    You are probably right - if it works with 2x10 it's likely to work with 2x11; I'm probably over-thinking it.
