- Do you need to protect the chain stay on a s/s specific mtb frame
A more serious note to the OP:
The role of a chainstay protector is to ward off damage caused by Chainslap.
Chanslap is caused by the dérailleur flexing, allowing the chain to move vertically and “slap” against the chainstay. On a Singlespeed, the absence of a dérailleur means that the chain can’t hit the Chainstay.
In summary – no dérailleur means no requirement for a Chainstay Protector. (that’s not to say you’re not allowed one if you want one…)Posted 5 years ago
