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).
Chain & Crankset removals
For the chain find the smart link and unlock it. For the crankset use the proper tool.
Broken Chainguide Removal
Broken chainguide uninstalled.
Unscrew the the three bolts. Do not lose the washers : they could be reuse.
Carefully read what’s inside the box !
LG1 Chainguide Installation
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.
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 !
After qualifying in pole position the rain salted Brosnan’s game here last season, well not this time.
The Spaniard on a Saracen, Alex Marin, had some big support so close to home here in Andorra and it spurred him onto a personal best 8th place.
Danny emmbedded cam at race day : fasten your seat belt !
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.
