    Chainguide/Crankarm Compatibility Question

    Is the offset in a crankarm made for a triple ring setup the same as a single ring crankarm? If I take off the inner ring can I run it in a chainguide made for a single ring without grinding off the inner tabs?

    You should have to grind off the tabs, even the Truvative DH cranks still have the post in them.

    I run my double/triple Saints with just the middle and bash with a e13, I ran my dual Big Earls with a e13. I didn't have to grind off the mounts on either of them.

    You have to grind off MOST crank's tabs in order to have it close enough to the e13 plate to be effective.
    a few exceptions to this are saints, diabolus (has a cool little removable tab thing), and some bontrager stuff. i think hones you don't have to either...
