its a good idea but it holds dirt and stays wet. I'm looking for something differenti've been using the fuzzy side of velcro for the last 4-5yrs. doesn't hold moisture like you would think and it is pretty damn quiet. Plus you can cut it to shape. Saw it an article on Sam Hill's Iron Horse Sunday. Apparently he hates a noisy bike. so his wrench came up with it.
Assuming that you have checked your chain length I would go with the old default chainstay protector which is an old inner tube wrapped around the chainstay. You can make it as thick or as thin as you like.Hey,
I have a 2010 stumpjumper fsr comp and i am getting a lot of chain slap, but no chain coming off the chain ring. what economical, light and aesthetically pleasing solution do your recommend? I don't like those lizards skins, etc.
Innovative and cheap but looks like hell . 'Sides, he already has one the came on the bike and it looks sexy, like this. I also have a couple of Lizard Skins on other stays to protect from various scuffage and chain noise.I made one out of a hose you can buy at home depot. Only cost like $3 for a foot of hose. Seems to work good enough for me. It's not silent, but waaaay better.
I agree. The one that comes with the bike is very sexy. My bike didn't come with one, and i wanted one that didn't keep moisture.Innovative and cheap but looks like hell .
