I now have six good rides on my 790 MSL and overall love the bike. It's everything I was hoping for in terms of handling, suspension performance, and handling. I hate the Fizik Tundra saddle and wish it were all black so it at least had some resale value but oh well. I have a WTB Rocket V SLT on the way.
I have one issue I need help solving. While up shifting the front ring under load, the chain drops a bit and wedges in between the ISCG tabs on the frame and the small ring. It's not anything specific to the frame in terms of behavior but the tight space between the tabs and chainring is.
I don't feel like I really need a chain guide for the usual reason. The type 2 rear derailleur is enough for me on the descents but I need some way of stopping the chain from getting wedged in there. I think even a small bolt in the ISCG tab would do the trick. Anyone else have/already solve this problem?
