    deadatbirth: Is it just me or do you have the configuration of the 2.5mm BB spacers wrong?

    It's interesting that Pinkbike wrote in their review about the compatibility of chainguides with the M9. I was just surfing around and ran into a picture of Chris Kovarik with an M9 (CRC build) and clearly there's an e13 LG1+ stocked. Now I just need a frame and I'm good to go.

    I have a brand new M9 frame and a brand new e13 LG1+ 36-40t guide and the fit is not very good. I think the LG1+ guide's that people are mounting are either modified to fit, or they're using the smaller 32-36t guide. I'm probably going to return the LG1 and try to find an MRP/SRAM guide since they apparently fit better.

    I had an LG1 and SRS+ before getting an MRP. To fit the E13's it took way more spacers to get them to clear the frame. With the MRP it was a much better fit. You can make the E13 work but the MRP does fit better.

    I decided to exchange the LG1+ for the MRP G2SL, I've read that it bolts up without any hassle. I can't wait to finally ride this beast!

    I cracked my SOCOM frame at Mammoth in August and I've been waiting on a replacement M9 for about 4 months. It finally came in last week, so stoked to have it, but so irritated at little things like the chainguide not fitting and the fact that it didn't come with an axle (and my LBS didn't have any). Just a few more days...

    I reserved a 2012 M9 frame today. I'm pretty stoked but won't be building until February sometime.

    I'm planning on running a 38t guide ring so would obviously need a 36-40t guide to accompany it. My LG1+ would fit the bid but does anybody know what kind of modifications are we talking here? I really don't want to get a G2 if I don't have to.

    With my fork arriving tomorrow I will have everything to complete my build minus the frame... I guess it's good to be excited about something.

    I think you'd have to grind a bit of the back plate off where it crosses the seatstay on the swingarm. I didn't take any pictures when I was trying to mount it, but I'm sure you could get it to work with a bit of dremeling.

    Here are a few shots I just took of my bike with the MRP G2SL. You can see the back of the MRP guide would hit the triangle if it were any larger. The e13 guide is taller and wider there, and I think rotated back more. I'm running 2 washers as spacers and the chainline looks pretty good. Hope that helps

    Thank you very much. I think that helps a lot. I will have everything to put the bike together tomorrow (minus the frame and the shifter cable/housing) and I think that I will end up just waiting until I actually start the build. I have been told by Intense that it should work but might need to be spaced more.

    My goal is to have everything ready to go so when the frame arrives in February I can build from start to finish in one shot. That said, if the e13 is too much trouble, I can get an MRP pretty quickly. Thanks again.

    No worries, good luck on the build. I'm still waiting on a rear axle so I haven't had a chance to ride it yet. Soon hopefully...

    The fork came in today so all I'm waiting on are the frame and headset which should be here in February. Now I guess the trick is to be patient until it gets here...

    It wasn't on mine, but mine was a warranty replacement for a cracked SOCOM. I know that the new frame at my LBS included an axle. A buddy gave me a steel one he had lying around, but the M9 dropouts are really thick and the axle only engages a few threads per side so I'm not real confident running it like that.

    Some changes since last time:

    Ti spring from the classifieds
    e13 cranks 170mm in the CRC sale
    Easton Havoc carbon bars
    SDG Ti Fly saddle (sale)
    ODI Troy Lee grips (sale)

    I've a got Bos Stoy from the classifieds going on this weekend so no more CCDB. A great shock but a proper PITA.
