    Sach pc-1 rubbing on Truvative Stylo SS guard

    Well I've been monkeying with this all night and I'm not sure of the direction to go.

    I just received my new SS, and the stock Pc-1 chain rubs ever so slightly on the Truvative Style bash guard. I thought I'd remove the guard, but naturally this makes the bolts to short.

    Should I:
    1. Just let the chain rub, the aluminum will wear in?
    2. Buy BMX chain bolts and toss the guard?
    3. Replace the chain with an 8 speed?
    4. Space the guard out with some washers?

    Does this occur in all parts of the chain, or only in one certain link.

    I had the latter problem with my Spot Brands ring guide and the PC-1. I reversed the SnapLoc, so that the pins and the gold plate faced into the bike (away from the chainguard). No more problems.

    It seems the pins on the SnapLoc are longer than the regular links, and they were binding on my chainguard.

    Hope this helps.

    If not, I think your next best bet is the 8 sp chain.

    If it's not the master link that's rubbing, I would space the gaurd out with some stainless washers.

    It's not the master link, so I think I'll have to try some washers... it's so silly that Truvativ didn't think of this when they designed the darn guard.

    I've had this problem before with PC-1 and a few different bashguards. It's not Truvativ's fault. You can do either #1 or #4, both of which worked for me.

    i suggest #2, but #4 if you want the guard.

    BUT, if it is only rubbing initially, i am thinking chainline not chain...only takes a mm or two to cause that.

    ..

    Same problem here but with a Salsa ring.
    I put in some spacers.
    It took a little work to get the bolts tightened down right, but now I'm good to go.

    A little extra room in there to clear out the mud is good too.

    Maybe it's a chainline issue. Maybe you need to move the rear cog inboard. Look down the chainline from the back of the bike - is it a straight line or is there a "jog" in the line of the chain?

    But methinks it's the BMX 1/8" sized chain. The Stylo ring is for a 3/32" chain and the guard might be positioned for the width of the 3/32" chain.

    Wheels Manufacturing makes 0.6mm chaingring spacers.

    The chainline is looking pretty good, it must be due to the wider chain. I think I'll hit up the LBS for some washers or short nuts
