As Ben Strange mentions below, this chain guide fouls the spider on my cranks when using a 32T ring. The top guide is also poor quality the the 2 plates not lining up correctly. Customer service has also been very poor, when I took this issue up with superstar i was first told to return the item before being emailed again saying I was not entitled to return the item with a short and somewhat cheek
Good value, good quality, fast delivery and relatively easy to install.
A had quiet a destructive crash, involving snapping my frame, and this device took a large portion of the impact and saved my crankset, they guide ran well while I used it and I will buy another one if I need a chain device again.
Thank you superstar.
Well... opinion is properly divided on this little baby. I recently fitted one to my AM bike. I've since hammered down numerous black DH runs (including an uplift day)without a single hitch. As others have done, I removed the face plate, countersinked (is that a word?) a hole for the bolt head and fitted it behind my existing bash guard. I also dabbed some locktite on the bolt thread before cranki
I wasted £18 on a replacement top guide for an mrp xc chain guide that didn't even fit my old mrp back plate before I got a vastly better product for much better value here. And a one day turnaround on delivery. Great job Superstar.
This is the worst chain guide i have ever used. I used to run a 3 speed front deraileur as a chain guide until i bought this and i would prefer the deraileur as it held the chain better. The top guide on this is horrible as it only covers one side of the chainring and it lets the chain get down behind the back which jams the chain between the guide and the chain ring. It isn\'t like this only happ
Watch out, these don't work with all cranks. I have a 32T ring and race face turbine cranks. When this chain device is set low enough to hold the chain down, it catches the top of the spider on the crank arm. Would probably be fine with 34 or 36T rings
I've been using one of these on my 1x9 winter hardtail for the past two years. After a few minutes refining the alignment and cage height it works exactly as it should.
I did break one cage after about a year, but the fact that Superstar stock spares meant that, for just a few quid, it was brought back into full service in no time.
To begin with it was a little noisy in the lowest gear, but the
