    Just thought I'd share

    The only bike I've owned for more than 2 years without breaking - two and a half years and still as good as ever


    Thinking of going 650B next, though may add eccentric shock bushings before hand to slacken the head angle a bit more

    Its a Bionicon V2 chain guide. Comes in a variety of colours and does a grand job of stopping the chain dropping off the big ring on rough rocky descents

    This one Accessoires

    I think it does, though changing to a double ring (42:28) on the front seemed to have cured the majority of my problems. The extra tension must hinder the sucking up of the chain thus reducing its frequency.

    Love the Bionicon on my bike as well. A bit expensive..but it works. FYI, If moving up to a bigger chainring fixed the majority of the problems, then that means your chain was initially too long.
