- Recommend best cheap chain retention for 1×9?
Was just about to get a KOM on slightly declined bit of farm track the other day when the chain came off on my well-used 1×9 26″ rigid mtb commuter. Don’t want to use the old front mech I took off, don’t want to spend more than £15 if I can help it, don’t want to bodge something with a bit of old plastic pipe (unless it’s the best option).
Anything recommended?Posted 1 year agobigyanMember
Cheapest one I can see
Not sure how secure it would be (but I am partial to DH style guides personally)Posted 1 year agomolgripsSubscriber

Someone Correct me if I’m wrong but modifying this for 1x shouldn’t be too much of a botch ???Posted 1 year agomuckerSubscriber
I’ve got one of these, it’s been flaweless and does 2x and 1x.

N-Gear Jump Stop. £10.
Had one for several years before narrow-wide came along and it worked flawlessly. You can also add a bash ring for extra confidence.Posted 1 year ago
The NW should <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>probably</span> be enough on a 9sp … perhaps its the long cage adding to the leverage and a few links???
I rode my 10sp HT lots with the clutch-off* and not a (frequent) problem with long cage and clutch off NW… but with the long cage and no clutch and 40T expander it started to be a problem.
*Actually the clutch wore out… on another bike and this got relegated but …
I salvaged the med cage from another mech.. and stuck this on… and for other reasons around that hub and the expander and not needing it its running a 36T now and from memory hasn’t dropped a chain… and it gets ridden down some steps and a few drop offs… If it was I’d have got round to transferring the clutch from the donor rear mech!Posted 1 year ago
