My chain runs prettys close to the bottom of the chainstay when in the lower rings and touches at certain points of the travel, while its probably not an issue as you shouldn’t really be doing anything in that gear I wouldn’t like the chainstay to get damaged.
On my motorbike I’ve got a (factory fitted) nylon block the chain runs over to stop the chain slapping the swingarm, just wondering if anything exist for a MTB.
I’ve got a chainstay protector, its not chain slap I am trying to prevent, besides i’ve got a tensioner so slap is virtually non existant.
The problem is at some points of the suspension travel in low gears it is possible for the chain to rub the lower chainstayunderneath , I want something that the chain can run over to prevent it sawing the chainstay off.
The below photo kind of illustrates what I am after, I’m suprised a lot of long travel bikes dont have this problem, most run singles I suppose.
