    Disco chain guides

    The Intergalatic Pilots and the two-time World Singlespeed Champion just
    started making Disco's chain guides again in a singlespeed kit. They're
    making Discos out of two materials: shatter-proof plastic and Titanium.
    The plastic ones are only in the "smoke/transparent" color for now & the
    Titanium Discos have an Iron Cross design (the design of the inaugural World
    Singlespeed Championship winner's tattoo). The Ti Discos are really cool.
    The Discos Singlespeed "kit" includes the correct amount of cassette spacers
    for 8 and 9 speed chains so all you'll need is a lock ring and you'll be
    ready to roll.


    check out www.offcamber.com for more details and ordering info

    Disclaimer: I am in no way financially involved with these guys nor do I make any $ off the sale of Discos. I just think they make a great product that fulfills a need for some SSers and they are also cool guys and dedicated SSers.

    Is it true you can get away with running a slacker chain with this device?
    Might be useful for trying to convert a bike with vert dropouts by using different gears combos without resorting to a tensioner or springing for ENO.
    I'm thinking about the budget bike I'm building for my niece.

    chain tension w/ Discos

    Yes, you can definitely run a bit slacker, which is good as it saves on chain wear a bit. Worth a try at least.
