I used to ride a 1x7, without a frt derrailleur the chain would sometimes fall off.

I came up with this no budget solution and never lost another chain.

A reflector bracket, a washer from a toe clip, one nut from a v-brake for a spacer and a nut and bolt to hold it together.

Free junk I found in the bike shop. It's light too.

I think it's great when people come up with stuff to solve problems. You're not alone. These all cost a lot more ($9-$13) than yours did but are designed to solve the same problem.

P.S., I've got the middle one on my tandem. Tandems are known for throwing chains when shifting to the little ring under load. Lots of torque.

Beauty. My commuter is a 1x7 but I left the front derailleur on as a chain guide. Guess I can do something about that now. Sweet!

I use the jump stop on my two speeds.

My little device prevents the chain front falling off the outside too.
