I ran a DCD BITD and also for a while a couple of years ago.

Cannot say it did a great deal :lol:

A correctly shortened chain and a simple N Gear jump stop goes a long was to keeping the chain where it should be.

as above
dcd did nothing for me
for urban riding my 1x9 assault vehicle, i used to drop the chain 3 or 4 times a ride at least!
got fed up and went with a full chain device (device+bash) in the end

its a blackspire ds1
works absolutely perfect for me!
and i have paid a tenner for each of them! :shock:

bash also means i can wear whatever trousers i want too

cyfa2809-no chain drops since 2008 :lol:


(edit: that n gear would work well too, especially for a double. so an n gear and a bash maybe to stop chain going off the arm side)

I just used an MRP chain device when I went to a 1 x 9 set up. No chain drops, ever :twisted:
