Brilliant for for a hard tail single speed
by Anonymous user on 15/11/2019

If you have a full sus single speed combo just use a old mech as you will want a dual cog to be driving on lots of teeth. This would be perfect for a hardtail as you haven’t got to tension the Spare chain used up in the linkage. And the spring in the tensioner isn’t strong enough to run at 90 degrees from the axel and have enough tension to work well without the chain climbing on top of the teeth.

Chainguides Guide

What are chainguides?

Chainguides are designed to mechanically keep the chain from falling off the drivetrain, commonly used in mountain biking.

Who needs a chainguide?

A chainguide is to help prevent a dropped chain while mountain biking. Bikers who ride a single or double ring set-up on very rough terrain will benefit the most.

What are the choices?

You can choose from an upper or lower chain guide, which helps keep the chain line in place. Lower chain guides work well with dual-ring set-ups, upper guides are good for single-ring arrangements. You can also get chainguides that come with an integrated bash guard.

What should I buy with them?

If you’re replacing a triple set-up, a bashguard that goes in place of the outer chainring is a popular choice.

Anything else?

It’s crucial that you make sure your bike’s frame has the right fittings for your chosen chainguard. Some fit around the bottom bracket, others clamp around the seat tube and more still use ISCG tabs that are welded to the frame.
