    N gear chain catch vs high $$$ chain catch

    Running X0 2x10. Dropped the big ring and bashed it. Going 1x10. Need chain checker for small ring. How does the N gear stack up to the $50 plus chain checkers.

    An NGear came stock on my 1x El Mariachi. I added an outer bash ring and it's been golden. No chain drop. Ever. I've been tempted by the MRP, E13 and other 1x chain retention devices but why mess with what works?

    Thanks ranier. Just ordered it for $11 bucks.

    my bud went mrp with the chain guide and the plastic busted off after three rides. He's pissed. I think his mrp was like $60 - $70 plus. That's a freakin joke.

    The only time I drop a chain with the N-Gear is if I up shift in anticipation on a section and then backpedal before I pedal forward. It was a bad habit I had to break.

    Yep, good performance here as well with a bash and ngear. When new, I had to tighten the clamp bolt a few times before everything settled in. That was the only time I dropped a chain due the the bolt being loose and the keeper slid in.
