    MotoLite Hive cranks, what chain guide?

    Ted has a MotoLite with carbon seat stays, Hive crank & BB and wants to ditch the large ring for a bash ring and wants a BB mounted plate with lower roller for middle and small rings.

    Ted had a eThirteen Heim 2 BB mounted guide installed with all the spacers on the drive side of the spindle and the small ring binds against the plate before fully tightened down. Talked with Charlie @ eThirteen and he did say that some types of "XC" bikes with 73mm BB shells are the hardest to do this type of installation.

    Anyone have any proven working setups?

    Get sum dirt!

    Not sure what defines a "XC bike with 73mm BB shell" but I use a Blackspire Stinger on my Supermoto. Of course, and this is the most unhelpful part, I am using Shimano SLX cranks.

    Who the hell is Ted?

    I tried mounting a Blackspire Stinger ISCG 05 on my 2010 El Guapo with RF cranks, same problem.

    LOL ! I prolly shouldn't have posted that Banks but It sounds in your first post that you were talking in the third party. I thought it was meant to be funny.
