    What is involved in installing a chainguide?

    Does it attach behind the bottom bracket flange? I have a 68mm shell on my bike with a 113mm spindle. The bottom bracket is good for a 73mm shell. Do I install the chainguide where the 5mm spacer would be?

    I've done the searches and can't figure out exactly how it installs. It will be going on a Azonic Saber frame.

    Any recommendations on which system to buy? I have a Raceface North Shore ISIS crankset.

    Thanks
    Louis

    I was thinking about the Blackspire Dewlie.

    The Dewlie looks like it sandwiches between the BB shell and BB flange.

    yes, that'll keep the spindle centered

    evil

    [Any recommendations on which system to buy?]

    get the e-13 (or evil, whats the difference BTW) DRS if you want to use a granny. if you ony want your middle ring, get the SRS. if you can do with out the granny, drop it. its soo much more simple and you have one less that to worry about adjusting/breaking etc.

    the only difference is the name. its the exact same company

    i would recomend the DRS over the Blackspre and MRP because of the stepped roller and the makrolon bashring

    I just put the e13 DRS on my Banshee and took her out for a spin today.

    It works puuurrfectly and its not noisy at all.
