    Chainstay guard on CC

    Dear All,

    I see much on CC thread showing all your beatifull CC but most of them don't have any chainstay guard installed. Doesn't CC need any of it ? or is it because of cable stop that is put below chainstay that makes it impossible to install guard ?

    It really doesn't need it in my experience. Wrap around style ones, like the lizard skins, might have troubles because of the cable routing. Using an adhesive style guard works pretty well though.

    I have a 2006 CC that I ride mostly dirt/gravel roads with. It's geared and I've never used a chainstay guard. Surprisingly, very few, minor nicks in the paint from chain slap. If you want a chainstay guard though, nothing works better than an old tube and a couple zip ties...

    The paint on the CC, at least my old one, was pretty durable. I only ran it geared briefly, but it never even occurred to me to use a guard. The chainstays of the CC are not exactly dainty, and certainly less prone to damage than a carbon or aluminum frame. If you want to preserve the paint, go for it, otherwise don't worry about it. I would go for the inner tube wrap, or maybe some 'Magic Wrap'.

    You can get it at almost any hardware store, and it creates an inner-tube like wrap without the need for zipties.

    It's a Crosscheck. It's a beater. Not really necessary.

    The Lizard Skins model with the velcro fits

    Keeps the noise down when mountainbiking.

    Is the chain too long?

    (Testing chain length in this photo - I don't ride it like that!)
