    Chain Slap on my Scalpel

    I have owned my Scalpel for a year now and put up with the load slapping of the chain on the carbon stay. So im finally doing something about it, and was wondering what everyone else has done to prevent it as much as possible. Will shortening the chain help?

    I try to run it in the big ring and high gears on the back when deceding, but this is not always possible when racing.

    So your thoughts would great

    Cheers Aaron

    I dont know about shortening the chain because ive heard you might have trouble shifting into certain gears. But what about a chainstay protector?

    Use a neoprene chainstay protector, it protects the carbon chainstay and cuts a good amount of noise.

    I use handlebar tape wrapped around the chainstay with electrical tape securing it at both ends. I works very well.
