    Chainguide install on a Chumba EVO

    I've been having some issues with the chain staying on over the rough stuff, so I picked up one of the $39 Heim 3Guides that are on closeout from Cambria. The closeout version comes with a white roller - which really doesn't bother me, since it's meant to be a replaceable part. When it wears out, I'll throw on the MRP LRP roller like the Homers do

    Anyways, in the meanwhile, I just threw a little Chumbie on there. The Heim does in fact work with an e-type front derailleur.


    Chumbie goes round and round...

    Ride report to come soon!

    That Chumbie is a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be. You should put some blinkie LEDs on there to really pimp it out.

    Here's a quick RR. So far so good.

    There doesn't seem to be any added drag, and the roller is fairly quiet. You almost can't tell it's even there....until you start descending. With the chainguide in place, there is a LOT LESS chainslap on the Evo. It's almost like the bike is more solid - it doesn't sound like something in the back is rattling apart.

    And yes, the chainguide did its primary job - no chain drop today!

    Are there plans to have mounting tabs on the Evo in the future?

    That looks damn cool! It looks like with that bash you were able to get the roller close enough to the chainring. Send me a bike shot and I'll put it in my new gallery.
