    Chain catcher for xo 3x10

    Hi guys I have posted this at Santa Cruz board as well, but I might get better response here:
    I would like to get a chain catcher for my Tallboy with sram xo 3x10. 22-33-44 I am also planning to replace the big ring with a 34T HBC bash.
    I don't have any spacers, so I don't think I can use this K-edge catcher
    K-Edge DIRT-3 - K-Edge Chain Catchers

    Any suggestions? Maybe some catcher with seat tube mount?

    Thank you!

    Great question, I'm buying the exact same catcher for my Tallboy. Although im running the 3x10 Deore Xt cranks. My cranks have the 2.5mm spacer inbetween the actual crankarm and the bb. You said you have no spacers at all? The catcher is a perfect replacement, although the tallboy comes with plenty of chain stay clearance, I just want that added protection from any un wanted chain suck issues. I Spent way to much on this bike to have it destroyed.

    All in all, if you can't use it, that's a shame. I have heard nothing but great feedback on this product.
    They do make a general catcher that does mount to the seat tube I believe. Check out their site.
