- Brought the Wrong Chain Guide – E13 LG1 Content
“Measure twice cut once” is echoing around my head!!
Anyway I have a ‘new to me’ 2012 Orange Five, I have converted it from triple to single at the front and as such purchased a beautiful E13 LG1 Trail Guide, it’s absolutely mint condition, looks like its been fitted but never ridden.
I sold a device with ISCG old fitting to purchase the new device complete with ISCG 05 backplate…I have now been informed that the Five is actually running ISCG old.
Other than, selling to buy a new one or buying a new backplate is there any way of firing an 05 to old tabs??Posted 4 years ago
I’ve been running an XT cluch mech (soon to be Zee Short Cage if anyone is after an XT clutch) with a standard e13 chainring, fine for trails but as I went to a local DH spot it came off every run! Lost faith that a Thick Thin could actually live up to the hype on really rough trails/tracks, it spoilt my day and scratched my crank arms!Posted 4 years ago
There’s no comparison between those two… standard chainring just doesn’t work without a guide, you’re right but I went from standard chainring + chainguide, to works chainring and no guide at all, and it’s been flawless- including bouncing my hardtail down the fort william world cup route, a load of innerleithen dh and enduro, and quite a few decent sized crashes 😉
You might possibly find you want a top guide but I’ve found no need for it.Posted 4 years ago
Me too, it is mad frankly! I think with a full suss with quite a lot of chaingrowth like a Five, maybe a top guide is more likely to be required since the chain’s less controlled. But then on the other hand, my hardtail gets rattled around a lot more. But I’d be amazed if you find you want or need a dual guide.Posted 4 years ago
