    Questions for Fly riders

    1. Are you running single or double ring?
    2. If running single, what guide set up are you using?

    Don't bother answering if you have two rings, I have a good setup for that already but I'm looking to switch over to a bomber single ring guide set up for racing.
    If'n you know someone with a single ring set up or have some good ideas that will work, by all means chime in.

    Oh yah, I suppose the crank/bb set up would help too...I have Truvativ hussefelt/Holzfellers and a gigapipe DH bb.

    Moochas grassyass.

    1.) Running two rings 22/36 E13 DRS

    2.) Ride with a guy who also rides a Fly. He's running a single chainring(38) MRP. He says he likes it better than when he was running the LRP.


    I have seriously been thinking about switching over to E13 SRS Urban(36 max) too. I don't use the 22 ring since I climb on 36 ring. It's always good to have the 22 I guess.

    Thanks JB. I had their(Foes) tensioner thingy with a MRP roller ground down to function like a LRP roller(cheaper), and some old elastomers zip tied into my f.der. to manage chain motion a bit better. It worked really well, and I raced quite a bit on it last summer, only throwing my chain once (including all practice runs).
    I was running 22/36 as well, good set up, and I definitely climbed in the 22 a lot, but I'm trying to focus on racing more this summer and will be shuttling/lift riding more than pedalling around in the desert so I want a dedicated 38t setup. Fast and Quiet. When I blew my r.der. housing I actually used my front derailler to get through a little climb on the Angel Fire DH course, which was pretty funny, but overall I just want a bomber, quiet, tight setup.

    I made one to fit on my Fly... It's a outer ring, and inner ring that replaces the granny, and an LRP type bottom roller setup. I have never dropped a chain and have no problems with shifting. I'm running FSA V-Drive Extreme's (very tight fit) and a 73X118 BB. Foes suggests a 68X118 but my chainguide fits under the BB cup.

    I'm running a e-13 SRS MTN-X guide with a 34t ring and it's been working great. Though I am using a 73x118 BB with the e-13 ISCG cup and a spacer ring on the non drive side.

    So far I like it a lot, havn't dropped a chain and the whole setup is nice and beefy. I'll get pics of it later.
