Strengths:    An unbelievable simple, light and easy way to keep a chain from jumping off a 1 x 9 setup.

Weaknesses:    None so far !

Bottom Line:   
My wife has been getting stronger day by day since i started riding a single speed. As she found i needed so little gearing to have so much fun, the change came quickly: she's asked me to remove the big chainring, then the granny. Her setup ended up being 32 x 11-34. What else is needed? C'mon, 27-30 gears is a lot of cross chaining, we all know.
She doesn't need any more gears to ride our rolling trails either, quite good legs she got. Well, yes, she needed something else...as strong as she is both up and down the trail, her chain kept coming off in the rough. This because i removed the front derailleur and shifter, etc.
I went to do some research on our mates, cyclocross riders. Found they mentioned this little item quite a bit. The rest is history. Once set, you need to fall on a rock and have it hit the guide to misalign it. No more dropped chains and bruised shins. Her nice legs, gotta be strong and smooth !

Looking to put a chain catcher/stopper on my 2011 Scalpel. For some carbon protection/insurance. The derailleur is direct-mount and the tube is oval. This limits most of the options I've seen on the 'net. Anyone have experience/ideas?Read More »

Hello! I have a 2012 Surly Necromancer that I converted to a 24 tooth single ring up front. Unfortunately, the chain has a tendency to slip inwards off the chainring. I am looking for a chain catcher that is compatible with the 100mm of the surly as well as the 24 tooth chain ring....suggestion ... Read More »

Chain guide/catcher/keeper/thingamajig

I'm building up a cross bike and decided to go 1x8 (39x11-28). The frame is a NOS '07 Jamis Supernova and it has a front derailleur pulley right at about the same height as the 39t chainring which would interfere with a 3rd Eye Chain Watcher or N-Gear Jumpstop. I was having a hard time with the pr ... Read More »

Chain Catcher for a 2013 Salsa Vaya 2

Hi, Just picked up a 2013 Salsa Vaya 2 a couple weeks ago and I was thinking about putting a chain catcher on it. I was wondering if anyone else had already done that and what brand / size you went with and how you liked it. BTW, I have the double SRAM crank. Thanks!Read More »

ISCG 05 Chain Catcher?

I'm having a hard time finding a ISCG 05 mounted chain catcher for my 2013 Stumpjumper FSR Carbon. Dropped a chain today, and it happens rarely, but I want to make sure it doesn't get jammed against the frame again. It seems like my options are; Get something like the Blackspire Stinger and remove ... Read More »
