positioned with the cap right next to the chain


i imagined you had put the bolt over the top of the chain and the cap guides on the outside

yellow bike looks quick

Took my 1x9 out for it's first proper offroad outing on Sunday, chain only came off once which TBH I was quite surprised by.

Need to do some tweaking now to get it 100% right

1x9 set-up. Sram X-0 derailleur and twisty-shifty, with Sram 11-34 cassette and 32 chainring and an N-Gear chain watcher.

Does that chain catcher actually keep the chain on during a bumpy ride? the website talks about it helping with downshift but thats it.

:?

I'm sure that chain will bounce over that N gear, I had my stopper rigged up in a similar way and the chain still went over the top on the frame side.

Have to hit something pretty big/bumpy rto make it happen though

I realised i still haven't put mine on. Its a 1x7 44t front cog and the tensioner pictured is s**t! I'm looking for something a little better than this.

I very rearely need much more than the 1x7, the bar ends are a must as it really helps me climb the hills. Thinking about changing to 1x9 in the future!
