    Ran Saints with a Gamut P30 for a while, but i had to dremmel off a touch from both guides to get them to fit, didn't really work.

    Binned off the ring and got an LG1 in the end.

    I just got new saint crank last week. Didn't like the looks of the black honeycomb guard so I put my old e13 on. Had to dremel a little bit off the e13 bash gaurd or else it didn't seat on the spider cause the crank arms are a little thicker than normal. No biggie though, literally a 2 minute job.

    I'm using the transition chainguide and haven't run into any problems.

    e13 has the new Saint specific bashguard to be run with the regular chainguides. Otherwise the spider is too thick and leaves too big of a gap.

    I'm running the MRP G2 chainguide with my new Saints. Works awesome, much cleaner than my old E13 STS, and a better taco design than the E13 LG1 (MRP finally learned to patent their innovations).

    I installed a G2 with new Saint's on a friends Jedi with no problems either. (Strange to mount it 60 some-odd degrees from normal...)

    The LG-1 mounts up just fine too, no problems at all.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    Another new Saint Question

    I figured i would post my question here instead of starting a new thread.

    For the new Saints (single ring version) I was planning on just getting the crankarms and separately purchasing an e13 36t guidering and the new redesigned e13 SRS. I was reading an article on sicklines stating that some chainguide systems are a pain in the ass to mount on the new saints.

    from sicklines:
    "There are a few additional noteworthy changes however that are worth mentioning that on the surface might not be as apparent. The spider as you might be able to see is reworked and fitting an after market bash ring on these cranks probably won’t happen (or be easy) until the chain guide companies start to make Saint specific bash rings as the spider has significantly wider chain ring mounting tabs." They further talked about modding an old e13 SRS with the shimano saint specific bashguard.

    My question:
    So has anyone had any experience with the new e13 SRS being mounted on the saints?
    Thanks for the help

    Zub.

    you gotta fix your sig....you have an

    -08 SC Bullit Frame fork and shock......


    also

    just put that on there and buy a shimano bashguard and sell the e13 one.....it would probably end up costing the same

    Not sure if you know, but MRP makes a wide backplate for the G2 / Jedi, you should've hit them up if you didn't (or the Canfield Bros).

    As I said, e13 makes a Saint specific bashguard.
