- Anyone tried to mount a chainguide on an Anthem X?
I don’t know why you’d want to run a Stinger style one on an XC race bike though.
Because it’s not setup as an XC race bike and tends to dump it’s chain on the rougher tracks at places like Innerleithen. Also when I need to get on the gas at the enduro this weekend it would be nice to know it’s gonna be there!Posted 6 years agorichPSubscriber
pics of the mod I had to do to the superstars mount.
I had to machine the end of the mount off as it clashed with the shock.
I then cut down the guide tube/arm and tapped the inside, I could then use a longer bolt to tighten the seatpost band and hold the guide arm.
I had been running just the small chainkeeper guide, which seemed to work fine apart from in last two brass monkey races were I dropped the chain. I’m not yet sure how the chain comes off as there is no way I can force it off (or back on when it has dropped) without some disassembly. Not great for racing…
So for now I’ve bodged on an fuller e13 guide to see if that fairs any better.
