    Creo SL Comp Carbon EVO Vs SL Expert

    I recently bought the MY21 Creo Expert EVO in Forest green. I was torn as well but just knew I would want to upgrade wheels at a minimum and liked this color the best of all years and models. The fact it came with Di2 and road remotes was icing on the cake. Not to be overlooked is the fact the...

    I found the Di2 battery on my Creo SL Expert

    I would definitely be interested in parts and tips.

    I think you are stuck on semantics. I mean “align” as you can see from this image on the Praxis web site:

    They did did not release a 2021 Comp model. Only Expert and S-Works models where released as 2021 with a few changes...chain guide, road remotes among a few other minor “upgrades”. Your LBS told you correctly that there is not a 2021 Comp model and the 2020 has simply been extended for 2021.

    Are you guys looking on the frame side of the chainring? The picture posted earlier shows it on the inside.

    Interesting pictures from the Specialized website. The first is the 2020 Carbon Expert EVO. The second is the 2021 Carbon Expert Evo. Chain alignment and Wave logo visible on the 2020, but not the 2021. Chain guide visible in the 2021 as well. Eddief - what year is your bike?

    I believe they are all Praxis Waves, just different sizes. A quick look at the Praxis website shows all the 1x Wave rings have the alignment aid.

    Agreed, it is not an issue for everyone. Probably more prevalent on internet boards and forums as people tend to migrate to them to find solutions to their issues. For me it’s personal as I once ruined a relatively new and very expensive Bianchi carbon frame due to chain drop off the chainring...

    Checkout this pic. Notice the pattern of the links left to right...inside-outside-inside. Just align the teeth on your chainring in a matching pattern to your chain.

    Stefan - Apples and Oranges...totally different bikes. You are comparing a Vado to a Creo. Did Specialized add a stock chain guide to the Vado to prevent inside chain drop? Not that I am aware of so expectedly, it must not be a problem. You state you have a “Praxis Wave Narrow/Wide. You are...

    Your question is better asked of a Specialized rep but read this thread: https://electricbikereview.com/forums/threads/issues-with-the-turbo-creo-sl-all-variants.32267/post-355624 You will read of several riders experiencing chain drops. Also, if you browse any of the Creo Facebook groups...

    Chain drop to the inside on the Creo with the stock Praxis chainring is so highly prevalent Spesh added a stock chain guard to the 2021 models. Agree drop to outside is slim
