    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Whippet chainguide help

    I am in the early stages of building up a whippet race bike for collegiate season and am having trouble figuring out which guide will work. The On-one sites say that high mounts work but also listed is the Sram S3. So my question is will I need to get a "D-mount" or an "S3/E-mount" or something else ? My plan is to use an MRP 1.X single ring up front. Thanks

    -Jake

    You want the one that looks like this:

    I believe it is the D mount.

    Whippets have mounts for both SRAM and Shimano direct mount mechs, but the shimano one should easier to fit and adjust.

    more help again please...this time with the headset. Both the US site and UK site are vague about the required headset. Yes they say 1-1/8 inch steer tube, integrated, and tell you an FSA Orbit CE Integrated Headset will do, but they don't specify the I.D. of the headtube. What is it? 42mm? 40/ 44/ 41.2/ 46 ?

    The bearing is 42mm (41.8)

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Nice! These whippets really build up quite light, don't they? I'm also digging the UD not-finish-finish. Mine sort of looks like burl wood, except carbon. Was expecting it'd be more uniform, but the whorls and such are really growing on me. Just had a crazy idea... couldn't one add pigment to the resin? Artsy-craftsy, a sort of back-woods-hobbit special edition.

    Back on topic: great bike, super fun to ride. Carry on.

    Really nice build! Which size is the frame?
    Could you write some more info about the technical specifications? I'm especially interested to the cassette (11-36?), chainring size/type at front and which guide you installed to the DM plate.
    I'm thinking in something similar.

    Currently I'm using 3x10 with 42-32-24 x 11-36 but I'm not so satisfied with this setup and I don't use the smallest chainring at all... I don't really spend too much more money (buying 2x10 crankset with 40-28 for example, which would be too expensive for me), an 1x10 system would be a good alternative for me as well, I guess.

    The cassette is a Sram PG991 11-32t 9-speed since I had it there wasn't any point of buying a new 10-spd at this time for me. And the Chain Ring is an FSA dh ring 36t. I also have a 32t chain ring in case I ever want a 1-to-1 climbing gear ratio. The guide is an MRP 1.X FD-mount guide which saves a lot of grams over the E.13 SRS with bash ring I had been using.

    Very nice build, thanks a lot for the very detailed information!

    Do you use 4mm version of Sinz chainring bolts? Did you use any washer to fine-tune the chainline?

    I also wanted to buy an MRP 1.X D-type but it's not available in my country. I tried to order from Germany but with less success... It seems I will finally end up with E.13 XCX-ST D-type or E-type (I would prefer the D-type), maybe with a "Blackspire Einfachx Direct Mount" which is slightly cheaper. However still very expensive.

    the sinz bolts are the 4mm ones, they are listed as track chainring bolts and came in a set of five. No washers, the chain line is good when run on the inside of the crank tabs. Only problem is the 1.X seems to be designed so the back "kicks out" away from the bike. Its in the right spot just angled wronged, Most likely I will need to grind it down so it can line up straight. Right now it grinds in the lowest gears.

    That is absolutely good news for me, if no further alignment is necessary to reach the ideal chain line, I will also choose the 4mm chainring bolts.

    MRP 1.X was supplied with washers/DM plate inserts like E.13 XCX? If yes (or if you can get an insert from the Internet like XCX has), you may only need to grind down the insert only to fine-tune the angle slightly.

    I am thinking about converting my on one whippet to single speed. However I am totally newbie when it comes to single speed building so I have few Whippet specific questions:

    - What kind of single chainset is compatible for whippet?
    - Currently I use SLX triple chainset whit BB92. Can I remove big and small ring and convert it single chainset? Do I need to use some spacers in that case between cranks and BB?

    How I see it, is that there might be some clearance issues with 32t ring without spacers?

    Thanks for your help!

    BR,

    Ari

    I ran an e thirteen guide on mine, it was the low mount one, bugger to shim up nicely, but never any trouble.
