BB mounted chain device Orange 5
Ok so I am finally ready to ditch my granny ring – looking for a chain device to fit my 2009 Orange 5. The front ring is a 36T (saint m810 crankset)
Browsing the web it seems a few people have clearance issues; have any STWers had success with particular devices? E13 LG1 looks ok.

Good shout. Trying one on an Orange 5 myself and struggling with lining up the guide.
How did you get on with rubbing of the chain on the device jam bo?
Biggest issue for me is having to fit the guide, and tightening the BB with the guide straight – then finding that it shifts in the installation. And ‘straight’ is actually hard to assess.
So always end up with rubbing – though tend to find its more running on the front (exit) from the device. Plenty of room at the back. Tempted to spin it fwd a bit on its axis.
Also did you use the two supplied spacers? I’ve used one either side of the device mount and taken the normal 2.5 spacer away from drive side.Posted 5 years ago
No ISCG mounts sadly.
What would be handy I’ve decided is if I had an open ended BB tool rather than a full enclosed one.
Simples. As then could loosen the whole thing off with everything installed and adjust on the fly. it’s hard tomwrk out where best to have the XCX in terms of front / back when you have to dismantle everything each time.
And that’s before deciding where to put the spacers. I’ve gone for removing the 2.5mm existing spacer and put in one 0.5mm XCX spacer then the XCX then another supplied 0.5mm.
Ah well – always good to be changing kit before events like the Tour de Ben Nevis eh ……. if you see someone cursing at a chain guide half way round then do say hello 🙂Posted 5 years ago
