Using a Bash and a N-gear jump stop to keep the chain on my one ring.

Update on flipping the N-Gear: If you ride a steel framed bike and pedal hard, it will get caught on the chain as the frame flexes under stomping, bend itself completely out of shape and cause your chain to explode, and you’ll have to coast/pump your way home…Posted 5 years agodeadkennySubscriber
Yes and kind of.
Had that set up on my C456 hardtail and bashring stopped the chain jumping off one way fine. Jump Stop generally worked the other way, but a few times I’ve had some kind of chain suck it would jam itself under the stop despite only a mm gap between stop and chain. Everything tightened up very well.
Though more recently it caught and yanked the stop round the seat tube. Just must be a hell of a force involved as physically can’t shift it with my hands despite a lot of brute force.
Still, a rare occurrence and with some adjustments and/or the frame type and design it may just work fine for you. Guess depends on chain suck potential, frame flex or whatever.
Add a clutch mech though and bet you have no problems at all.Posted 5 years agorootes1Member
Your first issue may be finding someone with stock of the N-gear jump stop. Distributor has none and no eta, and I can’t seem to locate any.
Any one know an alternative?
I email n-gear direct asking how to buy – what just turned up in the post (had my workaddress on the email)…
then I thought I better send some money… via paypal..
never got a single email/comm from the whole process very odd..
anyhow n-gear + bash works a treatPosted 5 years agodeadkennySubscriber
rOcKeTdOg – I did think of doing that. Makes more sense. Might slap it in the vice and give it a bend.
Got no bash now as moved my spare X0 cranks onto the hardtail (yeah yeah, I just have spare carbon cranks lying around 😀 ), and it’s got a DH spider on it now and no bash option. Looks better without a bash, but there’s nothing to stop it jumping outward front now. A might end up with a clutch mech on there. Got one on the full sus and it’s great, but the mech on the hard tail has got plenty of life left in it.
Though with the Jump Stop modified like that, the chain shouldn’t be able to bounce up enough to roll off whatever direction. Hmm, going to give that a go!Posted 5 years ago
