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 !

  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 !
