    I have a stock 05 Specialized Bighit SPEC. It came with a single 38t chainring up front and a Truvative Boxguide. I would like to use it for FR in addition to DH. I want 2 chainrings and a bash ring/guard up front with a chain guide so I can pedal it. I bought a Truvative Hussefelt Double with P.C. Bashguard, but it didn't fit because it hit the ISCG frame tab screws. Has anyone successfully setup an 05 Bighit SPEC with 2 rings up front? Am I limited to 1 ring because of the ISCG frame tabs?

    Here are 05 Specialized Bighit SPEC specifications:

    Here is what the bike looks like


    The best reply to this post would be someone telling me exactly what crankset, bash ring/guard, chain guide, and front derailleur would work, but any help is appreciated.

    it could be done i suppose, with the right fd, as long as it wont hit the swingarm of ur bike. E thirteen drs or a blacspire dewlie would be cool on it.
    what is your setup, ive always thought those bikes are cool.
