Anyone know of any instructions online to fitting one of these Superstar chain devices (the ISCG05 version) ?

Thanks.

    It comes with six washers. Where do these go? On the BB shell side of the device, two for each bolt?

    Got it. And as I'm fitting to ISCG - I leave all the spacers on the BB? 2 on drive side, 1 on non-drive side?

    as it is not BB mount there is no change to the BB.

    If you're fitting (or attempting) to fit it to your Hopper, you have the wrong one as the Hopper doesn't have ISCG tabs on it. And thus you'll need the BB mount version.

    Rockhopper is 2x10 and has a BS Stinger (you couldn't get away with a single ring XC/AM bike over here :wink: )

    It was going on (is on) the NP Snap (with a new BB hence question re. spacers)

    All sorted, looking good & working well 8)

    Like all these things - once you do it once you realise how easy it is. Still not sure about the 6x washers but like nicklous says - it's working so who cares.

    (Snap is looking awesome btw)

    if they were bolt sized then they can go under the bolt heads, if the body needed moving out from the frame they could go between them. and some times the bolt heads catch on things if you use them.

    Yeah, with closer inspection they must be to move the whole device out a bit

    I did put one washer (on each bolt!) in between the frame and device but the chain still sticks slightly proud of the top-guide so reckon another one should help with that
