I see you made another chainguide. Looks better now :)

What's that goo below the seatmast topper? Did you add epoxy because the diametre did not match, or is it just excess grease/carbon paste?

an added layer of carbon to match the seat topper. the frame had an odd size so a quick layer of epoxy and carbon fixed it. not the cleanest right now but ill touch it up later.

and this chainguide version is working much better then the other could have. i'm looking into replication of them now so if anyones interested pm me.

25g on my scale. has an adjustable range should fit up to 38-32t easy. to adjust the outward from the frame you just have to trim the spacers( right now they extend out as far as the 3rd ring would on my extralight.

I wanted to suggest using flat or button head screws, but I see you got around it and it looks best. I would take off r2-bike decal and do something with the chainstay protector. The blue accents look great. Are you thinking of selling the other 4 chainguides?

i was trying to find a clear vinyl to use as a protector but i wasn't able to find it at the local hardware shops :/

I like the r2 stickers, but there is a kcnc one on the headtube that has got to go.

i do plan on selling the 5 chainguides. the one pictured is ready for sale as it sits.
