Can i keep a chainguard ?


 

If you do extreme rides (hard enduro ,DH or freeride...) it is probably better to use a chainguard.

 

  several solutions are available.

 

-1 / We sell an upper part chainguard which is fixed on the LIFT plate : this is the easiest solution, if you are worried, use this option .

 

- 2 / You probably have an additional mount : There are many possible mounts other than the ISCG mounting for an anti-derailment: on collar , TYPE E, DIRECT MOUNT, on the bases (cguide) , you can use a different standard of anti derailment that many brands propose : E13, MRP, CGUIDE etc ...

 

- 3 / narrow/wide face race system: This technology, used on the latest bikes since approximately 2013 means that no anti-derailment system is necessary... Our kits are sold with narrow/wide race face sprockets which significantly reduces derailments, especially if they are coupled with a sadow derailleur (Shimano) or type 2 (sram.).

 

you can read a very interesting test about narrow/wide here:

4/ If you have a front dérailler on your bike :

 

You can sometime use it like to chaine guide, on this case you can try lock it , and it will be guide the chaine like to chaine guide, same as photo attached.

 

 


5/ Chaine guide for internal version:
 
On the internal version of our kit, the motor main plate guides the chain more naturally, so no need a specific chain guide.
 
However, it is possible to add a small guide pin on the oblong hole provided for this purpose, as in the photo opposite:
