isnt the uscg mount meant to be round the other way?

Iscg mount

Is the aluminium plate attatched to the bottom bracket

Its held on by the drive side bb cup

Its the bit the chain device fits to :wink:

You wont be needing that bit if you go triple rings up front :wink:

thats the way it fits,as the mount which fits on bb only goes on one way, there is one cog above and 2 cogs below acting as a chain guide , solid piece of kit really light to

sounds like an fsa chain device or similar

if you are going to run 3 rings up front id be intrested in the mount 8)


i thought it would be the other way round so the guide sits away from the frame abit

tell a lie! mine is the same way :lol: :lol:

would be looking to sell complete, i think its a e.thriteen complete chainguide, can only find one with 2 wheels on ebay where as this has 3 little wheels/cogs, it also have a race face big cog and bash ring, l&m downhill cranks and a set of nearly new fattys flatties pedals, may keep the pedals if i can get them painted well
