- Can a Chain guide help Chainsuck?
I’ve read everything there is out there on chainsuck. I’ve got new chainrings, chain, cassette and rear mech all XTR. Gently bedded in with recomended lube. Chain line appears bang on to manufacturers guidelines. My Cove Hummer regularly gets chainsuck when it picks up a wee bit of bud, always shifting middle to granny. To be fair it may happen on my other bikes but doesn’t jam cuz of chainstay clearance, but on the hummer chainstay clearance is tight and jams up easily. But its the best riding hardtail i’ve tried and really wanna keep it. So my question is would any of the chain guides designed to keep chain from derailing prevent it getting sucked up into chainstay, even if lower roller is positioned above chain…?Posted 5 years ago
Good suggestions lads, wasn’t aware of either the clutch upgrade or the Bionicon V2, so will consider giving them both a go. Failing that I’m considering a chain stay modification with a ti tube expert since more recent Cove Hummers have a slimmed down chainstay to prevent jamming.Posted 5 years ago
