Chainkeepers vs chainguides
The superstar is decent for general XC. I tried my 1×9 setup without any guide and it was bad, kept falling. But now got a superstar and e.13 guide mixed together to form a downtube mounted guide which works a treat.
Falls off still in big hits and fall offs etc, but that’s to be expected.Posted 6 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
The Superstar XCR one works fine on my 1×10. I’ve been using the bb mount one.Posted 6 years ago
I ordered one of the new seat-tube mounted ones, but on opening the packet today its already broken. There is a really fragile little bit on the hinge. Might just keep the BB mount one.getonyourbikeMember
Eh? They work fine on 73 bbs
I’d assumed that a 73mm shell with no spacers would mean that fitting a BB mount device would be out of the question. Was I wrong? Yes, you’re most definitely wrong:Posted 6 years ago
68mm BB shell- 3 spacers, 2 driveside, 1 non-driveside

If it doesn’t always keep it on, maybe it needs looking at. A big hit is the last place you want to drop a chain.
Mmm I run chain quite loose not baggy but only just tight on smallest ring. Maybe need to lose a couple of links. When I said big drops I meant big falls, just worded it badly. Came off other day and it fell off and then it’s quite hard to get back on as the guide is so close to the chainring.Posted 6 years ago
