EB13: e*Thirteen Shows New Variable Chainline Single Ring, Race Wheels & Carbon Chainguides
Now that single chainrings are the new black amongst mountain bikers, more attention is being paid to chainline.
e*thirteen’s solution is their new 104BCD Guidering with wide/narrow teeth and a flip flop design to change the chain line between 49mm or 50mm. It doesn’t seem like much, but if you’re running a chain guide, it can really help line things up for smooth sailing.
It also features threaded bolt holes so you don’t need nuts to hold it to the spider. Hallelujah! Available in 32/34/36/38 tooth counts.
The outside facing numbers let you know which way your ring is set up.
The TRSr and LG1r get final carbon layup spec and graphics. We covered the announcement of these already with tech specs, this is just a peek at what’s actually going to be shipping.
New TRSr wheels become their top end all mountain (enduro!) wheels. They get a 23mm inside width rim and new, lighter hubs.
They’ll use a different carbon shell and lower flanges to save weight, and it gets the updated axle ends we saw at Crankworx.
The rim will be available separately, too.
