E Thirteen Question

Hi all, havent posted here in a while.

Im looking into buying an e. thirteen for my bike. How do I know if it will fit or not? I have stock Hardrock chainrings. Also, I'm only looking to buy the bashguard, not the chain guide version.

If you want to run the bashguard, you have to sacrifice your big ring. Other than that it will work as long as you get the right size (bolt number and BCD)

I like my Supercharger

Yeah, they come with longer bolts that would replace your old ones. After you you get it all set up, adjust your high limit screw on your FD so it only covers the 2 rings.

I would guess that the bolts are too long now. They were designed for use w/ 2 rings, now that there is only 1, they are to long to get tight. You can either buy washer, or just put the big ring on until you get the bashguard.

It started out with 3 rings, and now im at 2. Its close to being tight its just i cant grip the female part of the screw. Would the tool i posted above work to get a grip on it?

Yes, if you have a dremel and a flat head you could make your own.

Good idea. By the way, is the Supercharger actually as strong as it's advertised; i.e. slides on rock etc.

The thing is a freaking beast. I can guarentee mine will never get damaged enough to the point of replacement. It's like 1/2" of rock hard plastic. And it won't bend like the aluminum bash guards.

Thats good to hear. I've grinded so many chainrings Ive lost count. I figured it's time to get a respectable bash guard. Its ok that I have 2 rings left though right?

Yeah, its all good to run two. It just takes the place of the biggest ring.
