I've had one of these for a few months and it has worked OK, but over the last month I've been dropping my chain numerous times on every ride. No amount of mucking about with it seems to help. Anyone else had similar problems and managed to fix it?
Superstar XCR - am I doing something wrong?
i'd see a doctor if i were U.
Has it rotated forwards a bit ?
Yep, i'd sell it if i were you.
Bah, mods moving the post have made me look silly now
Things to check:
- not rotated too far forwards?
- chain in middle of cassette - is the chain central in the guide?
- is the guide 'block' low enough down to be wrapped around the chainring?
- is your chain too long?
I never had a problem with mine but seen numerous things on here to suggest others have. Odd its just started happening...
same as above mine works fine

Chain's fairly central, I've tried it rotated forward, back and in the middle and my chain's the right length. The chain is able to get between the guide and chainring, possibly the guide has worn a bit and there's too much clearance.
I take it you have checked the chain for bad links or worn quick link? or possibly a bent tooth on the chain ring could also be enough.. fine when riding round the yard then off as soon as you hit the rough stuff
