    Chain guard/clothing protection?

    Anyone using a chain guard on your commuter of any sort to protect clothing from damage?

    I just wear something comfy for biking that I don't have to worry about too much, rather than wearing work clothes. I add a leg band (velcro reflective thingy) if the pantlegs are not snug enough to stay off the chainring.

    I have a 1 x 9 with a guard that was a discarded 52t chainwheel shown here.

    Pants guard for the chainrings, like B Mc says. If you have trouble from the chain itself, 1/2 or 5/8 inch tubing for drip irrigation systems is often used on recumbents for that. The shorter chain length on a diamond frame would make it a little more trouble to install without restricting the chain, but it should still be possible. Most people who use it mount it from a short piece of scrap chain in such a way that the tube can move side to side and up and down as needed, but can`t get sucked into the chainrings or rear cluster.

    As good for this forum, last song on the album: "...and you were there beside me, running down the road."

    Thank you, you made my morning. LOL!

    In my defense, I was only bringing in a bottle of Calistoga water.
