    Cove G-Spot Chainguide options / problems / solutions?

    I own an 05 cove gspot
    I am pretty happy with the bike
    I use it as a trail/shuttle/freeride type bike, but no real dh
    850 spring on the rear and the front setup super stiff and lowered too (i am 225 and like my bikes stiff)
    The only issue is the chainline
    I had a derailluer and 2 ring saint crank setup, but kept on dropping the chain
    I went to an e13 bashguard, but since there are no iscg mts, had to put an adapter plate
    That pushed the chainline out a lot
    Now I am afraid to crank hard on it when in the big rear cog
    How have people delt with this?
    What about a DRS device?
    I am pretty ignorant at the tech stuff on this
    I've searched the forums for a while and read somewhat
    Here's the two other threads, i've posted on about this (with pics)

    Hey Gideon, the BB mounted Blackspire Stinger I fitted is working great now, I swapped the 113mm bottom bracket for a 118mm bottom bracket an re-set the front derailler limits and its spot on, ive posted this picture and although it doesn't show a lot, it does show it fits ok, there's a 1mm/2mm gap between the guide and pivot.

    thx mang
    I sold the frame and got a bottlerocket
    any spacers/adapters, etc really pushed the chainline way too far for my tastes
    other than that, the bike rode well (abeit a bit tall even for a small)
