Hi how is everyone.....Id like some advice on fitting my new parts.

Ive got a Shimano Zee Chainset - FC-M640 68-73mm single chainring with HollowtechII BB.Im also fitting a Superstar XCR single ring chainguide (BB mount) and would like to know how many spacers I would need to fit if any...for this setup

Any advice or info would be great...

Thanks :D

    some or none.

    it all depends on your frame and what the width of the BB.

    My frame is an old Orange Patriot with 68mm BB....

    so the device as it is BB mount replaces one of the spacers.

    and the manual says for a 68mm BB you need 3 spacers. so you use 2. and the 0.5mm spacer that SS provide.
