    Chain guide for TRUVATIV STYLO SS CRANKSET?

    What would be a good Chain guide for that crankset for less than a hundred dollars, my chain keeps falling off

    i've got the same crank. Are u running it as a ss or w/ gears? I have not really ridden it too much but have not dropped the chain yet and i'm running a der w/ it.I was also thinking of a chainguide for it. Lets see what other guys say about it.By the way what did u pay for the cranks?
    I watch the O.C. cause it makes me happy...

    If misery was money i'd be the richest man on the planet.

    seems like you need an MRP or if your cash is low a Truvativ chainguide from JensonUsa. Under a 100.00 too! If you arent running gears, I have had a lot of luck with the Surly Singulator

    yeh I have a rear der on it and it keeps dropping the chain like crazy and whenever I bunny hop or something the chain slaps the bottom of the bash guard make a loud annoying sound and I dont think its good for the chain. I paid like 120 for it

    The tru Vativ works good- i had it on another bike of mine. Maybe your chain is too long tho. Try taking a few links out.That might help a little.If not go for the chainguide of your choice- most will work.

    yep. a common problem. If you are cheap like me toss an old front derr. on there. It works to a little bit for going around town and jumping cats and such.

    yeh I allready took out 2 but I will try more because that could be the problem I just switched the chain from an idrive to a steelhead. and how do you know if you took out too many?

    Put the chain on the biggest gear(lowest) and the der arm shold ALMOST be fully extended towards the crank. It should be about 2 links longer than having the der fully extended. hope this helps. By the way not sure if that chainguide will work 4 your crank-dont know the bolt pattern....

    With the chain in the biggest gear the part of the der that takes up slack (arm,leg...whatever its called) bends forward towards the crank. Sorry i cant describe it good but im watching monday night football and the beers im drinking are winning..
