Works and looks sweet!
Well the set up was easy per say. Since I put mine on a speshy epic 29er, the direct mount is kinda funky on it.(save that mounting bracket that your derailier was mounted to. you need it) Also I didn't want to put any more spacers on my crank. So bear that in mind. It installed as easy as screwing the screws in. but I did have some rubbing which I could not let be. And since this was mounted with no spacers my hands were tied with the chain contact. Sooo I took the hinged swing away section off and shaved more weight/put it to the grinder where the chain was rubbing. Result was a perfect success!!Just be real gentle if you are forced into this method. Little steps and steady hand. Im not worried about the warrantee or compromising the strength of the plastic. Its quite thick and strong and the amount ground away was just enough to clear the chain in the largest cog. Anyway great product and works perfect. Get one and go 1x!!!

PROS: Easy To Install, Lightweight, Durable, Attractive Design

BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Casual Riding, Racing

Great for a 10 Speed
I've got the e-type guide...I use it with a 9 speed drivetrain (32 - 12/34) and no matter how I set it up, it will just barely rub on the 34t cog. I think that when I upgrade to 1x10, I think it will work out great.

Otherwise, it works fantastically. Installed easily, hasn't dropped the chain through a whole season of riding... definite recommendation.

PROS: Easy To Install, Inexpensive, Lightweight

CONS: Limited Compatibility

1X for the win!
Started running a 1X setup on my S-Works Stumpjumper FSR using the XCX E Type along w/ E13 guide ring and XO shifter/derailleur in January and love it. Now all I have on my bars is shifter/brake on the right and seatpost dropper/brake on the left. Initially ran the 32T ring that used to be my middle ring, which was 1 tooth smaller than the minimum in the specs. Dropped the chain less than when I had a front D, but still had problems with the chain getting all snagged up in the guide and coming off the ring. Went to a 34 tooth, which pretty much took care of the problem. The E Type direct mount fits great on the stumpy, although it took some fiddling to get it lined up just right. My bike is lighter and meaner on the descents, and I'm digging the simplicity. Wish it would accommodate a bash guard, but that's really not a big deal at all. I don't know if it will survive more than 1 season of heavy riding, which is the only reason I gave 4 stars.

PROS: Light, Simple, Frees up handlebar space, Reliable

CONS: Wears quickly, Can't run a bash ring

BEST USES: Trail riding, Shredding

It works
I got this for my transition to a 1x10 set-up on my hardtail. I've had it for a month or two now with no problems to speak of. It took two tries to get the spacers on my BB right, but that was no big deal.

I also run an XTR derailleur with the little tension switch. I think I could run it without the guide, but I like the extra security.

It's quiet and I don't think about it...just the way it should be.

I routinely ride...
I routinely ride rocky terrain with lots of roots which had caused me to loose my chain frequently with the jump stop device. No problems with the E-13.

does as promised
This is my second one, because the first one broke when I smoked a rock. Wish E13 just sold the top part instead of having to buy a whole new system. Great for those who think 10 speed is a joke with there thin chains. Get this a 32 single ring up front and a shimano 12-36 in the back and you can climb anything.

E.13 XCX giude
I could not space the guide in enough to work with my chainline.Could have something to do with the fat seat tube on my Blur TRC.
I have always been a fan of E.13 guides and was bummed this did'nt work.
Crazy expensive for what it is.You can buy a complete LG1+ for less.

PROS: Fit and finish very good, Usual E13 Quality, Mounted Up Easy

CONS: Crazy Expensive, Not enough adjustment
