It just stops your chain slipping off in the big gears. You will need one if running 1x9. I'd be upset if I bashed mine :lol:

Just have a bike with you, ideally not working very well, and we'll spot you!

@Ratch: I am officially bringing my 1st ever mtb replica for a test ride before the real thing (http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=98277). You won't miss me - it's neon pink (and a bit of a gate too) :lol:

Have you had clearance from the Ticknall Village Hall Committee. If it's not a Farrow and Ball colour you may have problems. :D

Just like the cage in a front mech stops the chain from derailing the 'bash guard' and a 'jump stop' do the same job. It just keeps the chain on the front when in high or low extremes.

Last Tuesday my chain came off three times...with my new, handcrafted bash guard, not once :wink:

I'm bloody pissed off about missing the ride tonight.

By the time I got home at 6.30 I felt much better but it was too late and I'd forgotten to charge my light anyway (although it would probably have lasted)...

Bugger :roll:
