For those of you using a Stinger chain guide. Are you using spacers between the plate and the ISCG mount? Mine is buzzing my tire.

Mine did that too. I bent it a little the other way, hah. The chain rubs on the metal sometimes too. I should either get another washer or get rid of it.

Here is the latest upgrades on mine. Monarch Plus, Stinger Chainguide, new bars + grips. I have a fresh set of tires yet to come. Unfortunately, Spring has been canceled as you can see in the pic, so I won't be riding it any time soon.

Looking nice howza, can i ask what chainring sizes your using?

I'm looking at adding a bash and a Blackspire stinger, just wondering if i will need to change the standard rings (22/32 teeth) to anything bigger.

Nice! I'm thinking about "raw-ing" my Pitch too, the stock paint is crap and chips off if you look at it wrong. Did you do the work yourself or have it acid stripped?

I did it myself using spray on aluminum stripper. It's not that tough, but there is some labor involved, especially in the nooks and crannies. I used a couple of nylon brushes to help. It took 2 cans of stripper for me. The toughest part for me was removing and replacing the bearings.

Mine had the yellow paint, which I hated, but bought it because it was a good deal, and it was the only one left. I'm loving the raw finish.

Here's my Pro. Added an MRP bash, Odi's, wide H-bar off a Big Hit and some spd's(not in pic). Does everything my Fluid LT did but handles tight trails better.
