As in an earlier post, I'm trying to minimise the damage to my 853 Inbred from chainsuck. It's occassional but due to the tiny amount of chainstay/ring clearance damage can marked and the chain seems to cut through the inner tube and ziptie armouring I've put on. I have an anti-chainsuck plate but the extra-wide chainstays again pose a trouble as it's hard to fit. I have got it fit with a lot of fiddling and by angling the top plate in. It's ugly (but then so's a mangled chainstay) but will it work? The other question is how tight do I do it up. It's only got a single bolt and the way the plates have to be angled it can only take one bolt. I don't want it working lose and catching the rings, or being driven into the rings should chainsuck occur but equally I don't want to damage the tubing, the plates are also sat on top of the welds for the little chainstay gussets and I don't want to damage this.
Is there a practical way of protecting the chainstay on a bridgeless stayed Inbred, or should I stop trying and buy something else if it fails?
