    Is a special adapter needed to mount an e-13 to a vpfree?

    Well? And if so, how much is it?

    is it the same way with mrp's?

    You need an ISCG adapter - and space out the guide from the adapter.

    And remember, if it's a '07 VP-Free, it has ISCG05 mounts. So a normal ISCG guide won't fit.

    On older Vp-frees you'll need a ISCG adapter. The same goes for both MRP and e.13 guides.

    At least Chaireaction sent me the ISCG adapter when I ordered an E-13 SRS for my Yeti.

    I think E-13 has a compatibility guide or something on their website.

    I have the e.13 SRS guide on my '06 vp-free. The ISCG adapter comes with the guide. The best set-up is to mount the ISCG adapter "wrong way". That's the only way I got it to work properly.

    even with the iscg adapter make sure it is set up right, my freind had a shop do it and they didnt space it right, he ended up grinding down where the cnc yoke and chainstay meet at the weld. and i mean deep too maybe .5 cm? which is pretty deep just from chain. worst is th eshop wouldnt even take th eblame for it. next thing i know we are wintergreen and im wrenchign on his guide. had to ttake it all apart and re fit it. i saved him a chainstay hah
    Looking for a 7.87 x 2.25mm shock, any brand any age that runs well!! cheap would be appreciated!

    I just sandwiched my e.13 and the bb cup. I have Saint cranks on mine. Guide and frame are not the new versions.

    No spacer on the drive side & (2) on the non-drive side of my VP Free. The non-drive side has to clear a protrusion of the frame to seat the bb cup. But this is on a VP Free may not be the same for your particular bike.

    You don't need ANY adapters. Just sandwich the stupid thing behind the bb cup.

    Don't be disappointed when you can't rotate the roller to the proper 8 o'clock position. The vpp drop link behind the bb makes it impossible to get perfect position. If you tuck it up too far the chain will bind on the underside of the chainstay.

    Huh. That's pretty sweet. Looking at the website, and some online shops like beyondbikes, it made it seem like you had to pony up another 20 bucks for the little crapper.
