...........I would recommend calling around to a couple places known to stock DH/ FR stuff such as Go-Ride & others. they more than likely may have a couple smaller SC's available. Worth a shot. I know from a XC perspective, the smaller OD seems to be warranted, but truly the application of the E13 supercharger is better utilized with some more ring clearance. I use the stock 36T on one of my rides & clearance has never been an issue. I slam stuff all the time, that could potentially mar/ dent the BB tube area of my frame, without ever even bothering the frame. If you are real aggressive, the 36T is ideal.Bikezilla said:Good luck getting anything smaller than the 36T supercharger. E-13 said they're too busy to make anything else. The 36T is very tall...see the XT Bashring thread below. It's not really a problem at that size but if you were expecting it to be close to the middle chainring, note that it's closer to the 44T big ring in diameter. Just shy of the teeth. Again that's not a problem, just be aware.
