New chainguide installation on a YT Tues Al

After a couple of years it is usual business that chainguide is dead ! Here are a few shots of a chainguide change procedure (e-thirteen LG1 suitable to ISCG-05 standard).

  1. Chain & Crankset removals
    View of the current chainguide. The chainguide has upper guide and lower guide wheel lost and bashguard particularly used.

    For the chain find the smart link and unlock it. For the crankset use the proper tool.

    Chain Smart link (redcircled).
  2. Broken Chainguide Removal

    Unscrew the the three bolts. Do not lose the washers : they could be reuse.

    Crankset removed.

  3. LG1 Chainguide

    Carefully read what’s inside the box !

  4. LG1 Chainguide Installation
  5. Chain ring change 😉

    It a good idea when fine tuning chain guide accurately if it is not time to change chain ring also : here a 36T swith to a 30T Race Face Narrow Wide chain ring. The narrow wide patent allows to remove upper chain guide with confidence. Not shown on the pictures the bash guard can be switched to the smaller one that comes with the e-thirteen LG1 box.

Enjoy your ride !

Vallnord UCI Round #4 – Race

Troy Brosnan is back ! At least a 2nd World Cup win for the australian pilot ! The race was stuning : after Danny Hart impressive run who would have thought it could be improve twice ?!? Greg Minnaar and Troy Brosnan did. Pompon is back is business also !

Danny emmbedded cam at race day : fasten your seat belt !

Leogang – World Cup DH #3


Gwin is back ranking 1st after more than one year without top podium !


2017 will be tigh is this sure. Loris pushed hard : enough to reach 2nd before his teammate Greg Minnaar but not sufficient to win a first World Cup Round !


In women elite category nor Tahnee neither Manon reached to beat Tracey Hannah.

Put yourself in this guys shoes... Feels kinda okay being the best doesn't it?

Best wishes to Rémi Thirion after his qualiying massive crash (collar bone).

Fort William – World Cup DH #2

Impressive win from Greg Minnaar : 7th win in Fort Bill for him ! He is the first downhill mtb pilot ever to reach 20 Round victories ! Overall results here. Jack Moir 2nd what a surprise ! Aaron Gwin 3rd. Marcelo Guttiérrez and Rémi Thirion complete the podium. Huge disappointment for Danny Hart after a crash in the most technical section in the woods.


In woman due to Rachel Atherton injury : Tracey Hannah won. Myriam Nicole 2nd.
