    Chain Guide for Tracer 2?

    I'm looking for a good dual ring chain guide that work with the lower link. Big ring will be 32 or 34...I know, not that big. I'm still running 2x9. It's going on a 2012 T2.

    Yeah, I tried one of those C-Guides, its ok. I live in AZ, its pretty rough here. Do you know for sure if the Blackspire Twinty 2x will work? Thats the guide I'm wanting to get.

    My MRP 2x did not work well with my XTR 980 dual matching my XTR shadow+. It's just collecting mold right now. The E13 TRS+ Dual with bash guard was returned due to the back plate won't fit at the ISCG 05 tabs. Brought this up to E13 and I heard they modified their CNC program. Now, just installed the E13 TRS+ Dual with no bash guard, my only issue is the plastic fin needs to be removed since it hits directly with the FD. I brought this up to E13 and I'm just waiting for their response, whether they encountered this, or they did not try this design to VPP frames.

    I hope this helps with your decision.

    Thanks, I'm going to try a Blackspire Stinger. For $23 its hard to go wrong. i'm going to machine in a countersink on the slot where the roller mounts. Then the back side will be flush and should clear the lower link.

    During the installation process, I found that T2 frame and Twinty 2X aren't compatible. Unfortunately..

    That's not good!! I ended up putting two 1.8mm bottom bracket spacers in to get enough clearance for the granny gear.
