Sick looking bike. Stoked to see the reviews of it. Going to sell this one when your done like the V-10 or is this going to be for you?

Also does MRP make that custom guide or does Canfield just make a backplate for the G2?

I ordered them direct from 26 I know that Competitive Cyclist also carries them. They are just too pretty I almost dont want to ride them.

MRP make that version of the G2 specifically for the Jedi F1. Yes I am selling it after we are done testing it to fund the next frame.:cryin:

How is it that everyone who gets a BA new bike is also a professional photographer? ;)

I can't wait to see it built, it's going to be sick.

ianjenn - with the saint cranks, the chainline is 2.5mm farther out than most. (new Saint is 57.5 and old saint and others are 55mm). The hot setup is to space the ring IN at the crank, then you won't need any spacers on the guide or pulley wheel. The spacers come with the chainguide. Try not to use any spacers on the pulley, it will run smoother.

This is exactly what I did on my '09 Jedi. Space the chainring in from the cranks and everything fell in place so nicely. I tried other approaches too, but wasn't nearly as happy with how things lined up.

by spacing it in 2.5 mm, did the chainring leave the spider housing? i tried putting 2.5mm spacers on the inner side of the crankarm spider but it seems at though the chainring doesnt get the support from the spider bulges

could anyone please upload a pic of this? even in pm ill be very happy to see how its done:D

It won't have as much direct support from the crank spider, but the support that is lessened is more in the lateral plane, which isn't as critical. Realistically the chainring hardware carries most of the force/stress in the spider/chainring interface.
