    Chainguide for the Covert?

    Are most people running the Blackspire Stinger with a 2x9 setup or is there a better fitting/quality option? I tried searching but didn't turn up much. Thanks for the help, been on the same bike for 9 years so I am catching up on the new tech! Also, will I need to space the cranks out?

    I have not run a Stinger myself, but as I understand it they work well (at least for the money) but they can be touchy to get setup correctly.

    The Hive TRS dual ring guide is quite nice, but not sure if it supports 9 speed setups and chainlines? You can also try the MRP dual ring guide... I am sure a phone call to MRP will help you get it setup correctly as well.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the response. I grabbed a Stinger and it bolted up drama free and lined up nicely right out of the box. It shifts well on the stand so hopefully the rain lets up soon and I'll test on the trail.
