- Blackspire Stinger positioning, does this look about right?
ha i know that, i can’t put the chain on till the Royal Mail catch up with their back log and deliver my front and rear mech.
Yeah roller will be right up to the bash when the chain is on.
I will move it up so that it is nearer 8’o’clock.
Thanks guys, especially the picture.Posted 8 years agosherryMember
It should be just slightly touching the bash ring/plate and facing between a 7 and 8 o’clock position. The fitting instructions are here: http://www.blackspire.com/site_assets/www.blackspire.com/images/dynamic/Stinger_Setup_guide.pdf.Posted 8 years agoMunqe-chickMember
slight thread hijack, and having read the fitting instructions 🙂 :
Just tried to fit one to a Nomad (73mm BB shell) with a raceface crank and external BB. So that means replacing the one drive side spacer with the stinger (and no other spacers used).
The granny ring bolts foul on the stinger stopping the crank turning (so now I’ve marked it I cant send it back to CRC 🙄 ), and the chain doesnt line up with the roller groove. It looks like it needs a spacer between the stinger and the BB cup, but that would throw the chainline out and would make the effective length of the BB too much for the crank/axle.
what have I missed (with apologies to the OP but didnt want to start a near identical thread)?Posted 8 years ago
