I am, however getting a 12 CSS. 13 is just too tall.

What I really want is the bottom gearing of the KTM-W's that I ride with that seem to tractor up the steep, craggy trails.
What did you do about the angle on your chain guide and any slider problems that you know of going to a 12T front?

I don't think the 12 CSS will cause any issues either, but I'll let you know if it does.

I did some more looking and I came across Gearing Commander. I ran the combinations and think the 12/50 will give me what I'm after without using huge rear sprocket (damage magnet) and chain guide issues.

I run a 12 on the front with no problems 50 at the back.
Nice! That's where I'm headed. Thank you.
