Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A bit finicky to set up, but well worth it For lightweight chain security, this is brilliant. It does take a little time to set up properly to minimise/eliminate chain rubbing, but once you have taken that time, it is excellent. Does it's job well. I have managed to drop the chain a few times, and this has saved me a few times. A quick backpedal puts the chain back on and allows the ride to continue without stopping. 11 August 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by GEORGE! To george - THIS IS NOT A FRONT DERAILLEUR, THIS IS FOR SINGLE CHAINRING SET UPS TO KEEP THE CHAIN ON THE CHAINRING! 26 January 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprisingly good Seat tube mount is much easier to set up than the BB mount version, worth the extra $. Sure it is expensive but it is well made and looks awesome. After a bunch of really hard rides this is way better than I though it would be. 26 August 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unbelievable £80 for a front derailleur that doesn't work. More than double the price of the BB mount version. A joke. 02 February 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Insufficient chainline Previously had a Pauls chainkeeper fitted to a Rockhopper 1x9 setup which was simply elegant. Having upgraded to a Carbon stumpjumper frame the Pauls would no longer fit as required a round downtube closer to the BB. The E thirteen solved that issued by seating higher up the downtube (without having go to the BB mount versions) Unfortunately the lack of chainline adjustment in comparison to the Pauls makes it impossible to set up without chain drag in bottom 2 and top 2 gears. Set up is an SLX crank, with a Middleburn 32 tooth non shifting ring, and sram 9 speed. 3 stars because the E-thirteen appears well made, and is light and well thought out (but not as bling as the Pauls). Have since fitted the Pauls BB mounted guide and works a treat. 06 January 2011

Answer: 
The clamp location is determined by your frame; it's the same principle as a conventional or top-swing front mech. High clamp should be fine for the majority of hardtail bikes, while some full suspension frame designs will require the use of the low clamp to avoid fouling the linkage etc
