Sea Otter 2012: Shimano Saint Chain Guide

Shimano’s Saint was launched to the world at the Sea Otter this year (see our story here) so we assumed that’s all there was to see. However, on looking over one of the Saint exhibition bikes, there seemed to be an unfamiliar chain device…

This device has a top chain guide and a lower (non-roller) sled. But there’s also a half-bash which can be swapped depending on which footed you are. And the Shimano rep there wouldn’t confirm that this wasn’t a Shimano product that we might see this year too.

More surprises tomorrow…
