DID Gold x-ring chain, no adjustment the whole trip, and Ironman sprocket. Good combination. Just ran another 2200 mile ride on the 13/47 as it was mostly good gravel and pavement, and still no adjustment needed. Lube every day, whether it's needed or not.
What tires you run'in?

There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it.
Only the wisest of humans achieve the second.
