Many thanks for all the info.   
Yep, I think you're right - time to drop down to at least two gears.  The more I think about it, I really don't have any need for that Granny gear - not sure that I've ever even used it!

Will definitely be giving the Bionicon C.Guide Chain Guide a shot - looks like a great idea.

See you guys at Meltdown,

It is not easy to get to the trails with public transportation. There is only one train line out and it has a limited schedule.  Some people do it, but it takes some effort and time.

You can rent a bike out just a short walk from the train stop in Willow Springs, 2BICI.  Check the hours and availability.  You could also reach out on the Palos Riders FB page and see if any one is heading out you could catch a ride with, or there is always uber and rent a bike out there.

Good luck, you will always find people to ride with at the staging area, once you are there.

      So, I think like most people, the first thing I would suggest would be dumping some gears. Maybe just switching to a 2x (and subsequently install a shorter hanger).
      However, I believe this bike comes with 10 speed out back, correct?? If you have a clutched rear derailleur you can always just adjust your clutch to make that stiffer. I believe there are also two spots to set the overall hanger spring tension.
      I was also just listening to a throwback episode of The Singletracks Podcast and they mentioned the Bionicon C.Guide V.02. They spoke highly of it and online review seem to reflect that. But, I'll always take Jeff and Aaron's word for a product haha. Here's a link to the guide:

Hopefully that was at least somewhat helpful.

I am so game to show tomorrow for trail day . The guide you displayed has a road race banner. Should I bring my mtb or my road bike lol ? I suspect my mtb and that their is a road bike race at the same time. Either way I will try and stumble my way there by 9am with my trail bike. If I am completely wrong I will look for a replay in the AM before I depart.
