- Rear mech clutch thing?
i’m looking to put a cassette and rear mech on my inbred 29er swap out. ideally a single chainring with a 9 speed cassette. currently running 32/14 singlespeed. i read something about new shimano rear mechs with some kind of clutch mechanism – if i put one of these on, could i get away without a chain device to stop the chain dropping off the front? or would i still need something like the bionicon chain guide?
thanks.Posted 5 years ago
I’m using the same device (only branded up Superstar) on a 1×9 XC bike. It’s not quite enough but combined with a proper single ring the chain drops rarely. FWIW my MRP 1x works a little better, but it’ll still let the chain drop on this setup as it can flap off the bottom.
So, good enough for me, or at least, good enough to prevent me from wanting to fit a bottom guide or change another bike to 1×10!Posted 5 years ago
