    E13 DRS & Trek Remedy

    Anyone fitted the above to there Trek Remedy seem to be having trouble with clearance and wondered how you have fitted yours.

    Im using a spacer on the BB along with the back plate, the rollers dont seem to line up with the chain, adding an extra backing plate means the chain rubs against the plate when using the granny ring. Can't seem to see a way of resolving it.

    Removing the spacer on the BB means the roller piece sticks out past the Bash Guard and I cant rotate the cranks.

    Any suggestions ?

    Cranks are Shimano M552, not sure on BB width, its a Shimano SM BB70 if that helps.

    Think its the Turbocharger, which ever one comes with the 2010 E13 DRS.

    Here are 2 pics, not the best but hope they help.

    I would double check the BB shell width...I also noticed in the M552 manual that you should be using the SM-BB51 bottom bracket. Not entirely sure what the difference is though between the two.

    With a 73mm BB shell, you should only need the DRS backplate (2.5mm thick). The alignment ridge on the lower slider doesn't really correspond to the Turbocharger, on the Supercharger everything was supposed to line up.

    You should have/need only one wearplate as well...what are the results on installing the 2.5mm BB spacer inboard and outboard of the backplate?

    Cheers, philip

    Mmm the cranks and BB are what came with the bike when i bought it new 4 months ago so no idea about the SM BB51 in that case.

    At the moment I have the DRS Bracket then a 2.5mm spacer and lastly the end bit of the BB, without the spacer the roller cage sticks out too far preventing the cranks from turning.

    You'll have to forgive me lack of knowledge in this matter its my first attempt at doing anything on my bike.

    Bike is a 2011 Trek Remedy 8 if that helps at all.
