How to Make a Chain Catcher, 2nd Ed. by John Marsh
$3.99 Subtitle: And Never Worry About a 'Suicide Shift' Again. That's right, you never again need to fear the chain overshooting the small chainring and falling onto the frame. The solution is in this fully illustrated eArticle, showing you how to easily make a 100% effective chain catcher (pictured here) just like the ones used on pro racing bikes. The second edition, published in November 2009, includes additional tips and guidance for making a chain catcher for a bike with triple chainrings. 13 pages with 22 color photos & illustrations. [PDF file size: 1.08 MB] Tips for printing an eArticle. See delivery schedule & refund policy.
NOTE! As the photo indicates, this device works only for bikes that have the front derailleur attached with a bolt on the chainring side of the seat tube. Seat tube shape does not matter.
Meh. They all do the same thing, the same way. Folks that use Dog Fang or N-gear can argue which works better for a given situation, but overall...MCJ said:Now that we have three chain guards or chain catchers on the market, the original K Edge, KCNC, and now Rotor can anyone suggest one over the other?
Yes, it's steel, but not stainless so it's now showing signs of rust. I just made another one out of 1/8" diameter aluminum rod from a hobby shop. I also had to get a longer bolt for the FD. It's an M5x0.8-25.dave2pvd said:ssing20: yours looks pretty good. Is that stainless steel wire?
