- Worthwhile chainstay (chainsuck) protection?
That’s basically what Trek did to protect the chainstay on the first OCLV carbon road bikes. They added a tall washer that fits behind the BB to stop the chain from gouging the BB shell too.
It’s just stuck on with a bit of double sided tape; mines been there for about 12 years.

I recently made one from two layers of old inner tube + cable ties. Don’t know if it will work yet. Yes, the chain will slice through the inner tube but I’m sort of hoping that by the time it’s cut through two layers of rubber the link will press sideways on the rubber too so pressure will be spread over a wider area. And the chain hopefully jams before it cuts steel.Posted 4 years ago
