    Chain Slap Help Mojo HD!

    Hello!

    I'm getting a lot of chain slap and was wondering what everyone was doing to get rid of it. Its starting to really annoy me right now.

    Would a chain guide help or maybe shortening my chain?

    Thank!

    I use this and works very well. The weight is only 18 grams.

    1 - Correct chain length, simple, but few people take the time to set this correctly.
    2 - Shadow Plus or Type 2 Drlr
    3 - Use a guide. Note: a guide with chain that is too long won't give you relief.

    The cguide is pretty good. $40.
    Google will tell you where to get one.

    Do you guys find the c-guide makes it a lot quieter? Mine doesn't seem to make a big difference - have the chain as short as I think I can.

    I had written a ton, but the ****ing forum "Reply to button" drew my attention (and mouse) instead of the "Post Quick Reply" button, so all my work is lost.

    Long story short, noise is likely coming from your front derailleur.
    See this thread, port 220 and the next few after that.

    I think you could be right - hadn't really thought about it too much but now I read that thread it could be the case....will investigate with a few chunks of rubber...

    Yeah, my Trek Superfly 100 Pro has the same one-bolt, direct-mount FD. Try shimming the FD out by 2mm, using a small washer behind the mounting hole.

    1x10 with an XX1 crank and a Type 2 Rear der makes it silent in all but the most rough high speed trails. Still no drops even there. With the Ibis sock chain stay guard I still don't hear any chain slap but I can feel it move - not in an annoying way. It's more of, "oh, hey I guess this is moving my chain around."
