    New Coiler in at last!!

    Well after a month of waiting I finally got it. So far so good. I have tried it on some really fast singletrack with some "sweet jumps" and it really feels at home. The technical stuff is going to take some time as I need to learn to keep more weight up front when it gets tight. As for the pics, I got a killer deal on some Crank Bros. Candy C's around Christmas for my old hard tail which it didnt match. Just fate that they go so well with the color I guess. I have noticed a slight rub with the largest ring against the swingarm. This was on there after a couple of test rides at the shop, but after a couple of full blown aggressive rides it doesnt seem to be getting worse. Should I be worrried? If so, what can I do?

    The ring should not rub the swingarm at any time.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Whats the remedy for this? Bashgard, some type of spacer, or some type of adjustment?

    The dealer should fix it. In fact they should not have let the bike out the door with it rubbing.
    I do not know how they would adjust the chainline with your crank/BB. The easiest way to fix it is to replace the outer ring with a smaller bash ring.
