    New question here. Chain Issues need Help!

    I wanted one bike that could do it all. So I got the C-Dale jekyll. I ride mostly crosscountry, and DH at the local snow park about 2-3 times a month. I know its not really meant for that kind of punishment, but I keep up pretty well with my buddies on their Foes, and Intenses. The Jekyll has been solid and performed great! However, my chain keeps falls off about once every run. I know this is just gonna happen unless I get a DH bike with chain tensioners, but is their anyone that has experince with any kind of gear combination that would at least lessen this occurance? Any help would be appreciated.

    Something you might try: http://www.montaramtb.com/Products/3Guide/3Guide.html

    And the reviews: http://www.mtbreview.com/reviews/Cha...ct_88920.shtml

    Also, check the limits on your derailleurs.

    Hope this helps.
