Right, am I onto a complete loser here?
I have a FC M660 SLX triple chainset. I want to run 2x9, so I sourced a 36t middle ring and an SLX bash, only to discover, as no doubt so many have, that the spiders are different, so the bashguard doesn't fit the triple spider.
So, I got hold of an E-thirteen turbocharger bash, which does fit the spider. It comes with nice long bolts..... too long, as they are about 4mm too long to cinch up the ring, spider and bashguard. I tried the original but they are about 5mm too short.
So, has anyone out there successfully converted a triple to a double, or am I wasting my time? What do I need to know, where can I source some bolts that are the right length?
