I just installed a E13 srs guide with a deity crankset and bb. The drive side crank looks warped as it rotates. Like a peice is bent or something. Has anyone come across this? I also have the deity 38 tooth ring if that helps.

Is it the crank that looks warped, or the chain wheel? When you install the cranks, you want to leave the bolt connecting the chain wheel to the crank arm loose. Tighten it up once the cranks are tight. That way you won't have as much wobble in the spinning chain wheel.

But if you knew that, and it's really the crank arms itself, then I guess I'm not much help.

take off the crank arm and loosen all the bolts holding on the chain wheel and bash guard. tighten the chain ring bolts but leave the big one that connects to the crank loose. put back on bike with chain. pedal bike in stand a few times then tighten bolt. should fix your problem

The face of the crank arm thet goes against the sproket seems uneven. When you tighten the crank arm, the sprocket flex's to the point where it looks like its bent. The sprocket up against the frame on its spindle is straight, but when the crank arm is put on its bent. Any suggestions? Its getting to the point where I cant tighten the bolt that goes into the crank arm through the sprocket if I want it straight. Its a splined sprocket, if that helps.

How did you tighten the bolt with the E13 guide mounting plate? The only way is to back the whole sprocket off. Did you have a splined sprocket? Thanks for the input so far bro,
